Acrobaticalists to perform Nov. 1
As part of Endowment for the Arts
October 09, 2012
Columbia Center for the Arts presents unique final National Endowment for the Arts sponsored world music and dance performance with "Nanda" acrobaticalists on Nov. 1 at 7:30 p.m. at Hood River Middle School.
Nanda's show titled The Jacket is teeming with juggling, acrobatics and martial arts. The Jacket combines comedy and irreverent pop-culture references for an entirely original performance.
The show features a cutting edge cinematic soundtrack, as well as tightly integrated video projections and digital animations -- all the while borrowing from circus, vaudeville, and classic western theater traditions.
This panoply of stylistic influences is propelled by an epic story, replete with ancient mystics, kung-faux ninjas, robots, lasers, and a myriad of other action movie oddities.
The result is not only a show that is truly unique, but one that strongly resonates with all of the mainstream entertainment phenomena that it deftly parodies.
This show is sponsored in part by the National Endowment for the Arts and presented in conjunction with Columbia Gorge Arts and Education.
Nanda will be visiting schools throughout the Columbia Gorge prior to their performance of The Jacket.
Tickets are available online at www.columbiaarts.org, at Columbia Arts, 215 Cascade Ave. and at Waucoma Bookstore in downtown Hood River.
Ticket prices are $20 for adults, $15 for students and seniors, $12 for children 11 and under.
