All this winter cold is making me ache to dance, ...or at least enjoy some fresh performance. So just in time to check out, a spring choreographed revue. If prefer to meet prior to show, let's have a group vote on where. Will modify meet time when a venue is selected. If none is chosen, meet directly at entrance. Please indicate in your RSVP if plan to attend both or either events. If so, nearby SteelHead Brewery on Campus Dr. seems to be a crowd favorite, but also open to all suggestions.

Again, majority speaks, thx for your interest & hope 2-c-u there! =}

Bailarina

Presented by UCI, Claire Trevor School of the Arts at Contemporary Arts Center, UCI

Their description:

"In conjunction with Dance Visions 2013, this dance, music and media installation re-envisions The Rite of Spring as a radically deconstructed performance event. The work is revisited on its 100th Anniversay as a cross-disciplinary project by creative artists from the Dance, Drama and Music departments of the Claire Trevor School of the Arts. Directed by John Crawford."


Location: Experimental Media Performance Lab (xMPL) (Building 721)

Performance expected to begin promptly 7pm.

Note: 3 or more participants pls. or shall forfeit event on calendar. I shall fwd contact info via Meetup email at least a day or two b4 event in case (ie.running late/postpone/plans change etc.) If you do not receive, pls.message me.

Important: Rarely pick up or hear phone DURING event if you're not on time for whatever reasons. I'm not being cruel or rude & phone might have limited or no reception. In some cases, venues such as inside theaters discourage cell phone activities. Every organizer understands it's quite challenging to keep tabs on everyone while an event is in progress. If you have a smart phone, you can post comments via Meetup & will try to reply as timely as possible. Thanks for understanding & hope 2-c-u all there, cheers!

Also: Pls.do not RSVP "no" - already assume you're not attending if you don't signup, thx! =)

ps.This is cross-posted w/OC X Factor Group [not all events will be & vice versa]

Tip: If you do not want to receive reminders for this or any Meetup events from this group only (besides announcements) simply go to 'Email And Notifications' settings under your 'My Profile' , then click 'Don't send me reminders'.

      ... though we do need to talk to Gwen about her navigation. :)

    That was fun. Glad Gwen found the event. The creators did a lot of transposition, so the audience became a part of the performance. Good creative random nonsense.

    Collaborative scene of dream w/thin a dream!...
    Collective dance, by glance, a chance so it seems.
    Collage of bodies split, pit, fit in lean teams
    Collide, unhide, stride, glide, glean over beams.

    Upon reflection, almost w/out detection,
    certain selection move w/effect affection
    Different direction make w/in connection,
    Each to their own projection & intersection!

    Quite a sight, reaction to such abstractions,
    Might a flight of protrusions & protractions,
    Light a night, an array attraction of actions,
    Delight a slight fraction of skeptic detraction!

    Immense appreciation to everyone who attended,
    Even if installation not entirely comprehended,
    Your valued time, spirit, joy this eve u-lended
    To heaven, my heart, a very nice start u-sended! =D

    +So fortunate to meet u-all & look fwd to more...
    ...my only peeve, not having more time to know everybody better.

    +Special thx also to our dear Jonna Robinson, group's main organizer ...for allowing me to participate what the soul sometimes quietly
    yet endearingly wish for:
    a community of like-souls sharing a wonderful gift of time together!

      Major huge thanks Albert for posting ur pix so quickly.
      Super glad since my camera is acting funky, thus other snapshots are delayed a bit.

    WAS the music performed LIVE, or was it a recording? (To a musician, this is important!)

    February 21, 2013

    • Gwenny

      With very polite due respect Jeffrey (Mr.Briar?)...u had 2b there.

      A cohesion of both live acoustic overhead sounds, audible rushing noises fr.perfomers themselves & recorded music. No band was present though. But the visuals were incredibly captivating! Almost Cirque du Soleil meets Lady Ga-Ga-esque! =D

    Thanks Gweeny...no doubt awesome time.

    Works for me, I will look for you at Steelhead, probably get there at 5pm. Thank- you!

    February 19, 2013

  • Gwenny

    Darlene - 5pm Steelhead Brewery, no rush but we start leaving for theatre by 6:30pm.

    Jeffrey – for some reason, perhaps element of surprise the theatre concierge is vague about live music details. There is a possibility it will be an add-on, although recorded music is likely too. Previous time I hosted for their Wind Ensemble the turnout was surprisingly elegant & worthwhile – hope that helps.

    February 19, 2013

  • Darlene

    Hi...what time and where are we meeting for dinner?

    February 19, 2013

  • Jeffrey B.

    Did we ever learn if the music is performed LIVE... or do they dance to a recording???

    February 19, 2013

  • Gwenny

    If 5:30pm is too rushy to eat i can accommodate group by 5pm also. =}

    February 19, 2013

  • Gwenny

    Hey all, ...got some mixed news. The good part: finalized theatre confirmation & restaurant reservation for 15ppl. The tricky part: was told just today Feb.19 the time was posted incorrectly. The actual time is either 7pm or 9pm. Apparently there’s another paid performance in between. Since a few of us have early work schedules, I chose 7pm for showing so group must be at entrance by 6:30-45pm. Dinner & drinks will be 5:30pm @Steelhead Brewery (their Happy Hour is 3-6pm). I greatly apologize if this conflict with your plans & understand if you need to adjust your RSVP. Otherwise if can still make it, hope to have a fantastic time w/everyone.

    Btw, parking on campus is $10-15/vehicle for those who want to meet directly there. Parking at Steelhead is FREE & a short brisk 5mn.walk over should take us to theatre according to my fairly accurate phone GPS.

    One thing you need to know: Steelhead does NOT do separate chex, so you need to bring cash.

    Jeffrey - I will check on the 'Live' part of show for you & guests, then update accordingly. UCI does have their own Masters/Students symphony (exquisite btw) but not sure yet if they are orchestrated in conjunction w/this event, so will try to find out - excellent inquiry, thx!

    Albert - I will add dinner/drinks portion once a fair tally can be determined. So far, I'm in favor of that option too. Helps us all get nicely acquainted b4 the 'big reveal'. Mucho kudos for ur vote!

    To all - I gladly welcome & do best to answer any further comments/suggestions, etc. Cheers! =}

    February 10, 2013

  • Jeffrey B.

    Do we dare to hope that this event (with the named cooperation of the Music department) has LIVE music? If so, definitely count me in! (--- a Living Musician)

    February 9, 2013

  • Albert

    Yes please dinner & drinks

    February 9, 2013

  • Gwenny

    Thx for ur early RSVPs, really helps to plan better. 2more friends interested from another group. So as of today Thurs. Feb.7 - total of 6ppl. But knowing Meetup anything can change by event date. In any case, I look fwd to enjoying w/everyone soon :-)
