Fables on Global Warming is a “performance art musical” that tackles sustainability issues using traditional animal fables from China, Europe, India and Africa. Eight dancers and three musicians entwine dance, song, science, imagery and puppetry to form a piece that explores the connections between humans and animals, culture and nature, and science and art. Fables works on several levels and will entertain children, as well as new and experienced dance audiences.

The Bump and Hustle

Start: February 23, 2013 10:00 pm
Cost: $3

 

The Bump and Hustle has been one of Lawrence’s finest parties since its inception almost 3 years ago. When we created this gig back in May 2010 we had little idea exactly what we were getting into, all we knew was that snobby soul parties were getting stale and that the EDM/Macbook aesthetic wasn’t for us either. Over time this night became OUR thing and thrived in bridging the gap between dubstep’s intensity and the soul scene’s taste. We worked on our turntable chops, we played rare records and common records, and, above all else, we danced our blues away. Back then it was just a feeling but now it’s something way more palatable: join us this weekend as we get-down for the last time with Cyrus D on the 1s & 2s, join us this weekend as we bid winter adieu and embrace the good times to come this spring.

The Bump & Hustle serves to showcase the finest sounds of the 1970s and early 1980s. Polished 70s soul sides and smooth disco anthems of yore made for the first brand of club music as we now know it, we celebrate the old that made the new possible: classy steppers, lavish grooves, rich production, and heartfelt vocals are what we’re all about. We’ll even mix in some contemporary records just to keep things relevant so stop on by cause we’re all about having a good time.

Lawrence, KS, United States, 66044
Cost: $15 Student/Youth - $28 Adult

Ragamala Dance brings the sensibility of mysticism and sanctity of the 2,000-year-old Indian dance form, bharatanatyam, to the contemporary stage. By interfacing choreography with live Indian music and the visual traditions of kolams and Warli paintings, Sacred Earth celebrates body and nature, and soul and earth. The choreographers use visual traditions to explore the interconnectedness between humans and the landscapes that shape them. The evening builds from silent, meditative beginnings to a thrilling crescendo as the performers surrender to the beauty of this sacred earth that has been given to us to safeguard, cherish and pass on to our future generations.
