El Lobo y La Paloma, The Film

Ticket Link:
https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/4494961

Showtime
Fri Feb 28 | 7pm

Price
General Admission | $10

El Lobo y La Paloma, The Film
Directed by David Camlin and Scott Sutherland
58mins
NR

The original, live performance of El Lobo y La Paloma was created by flamenco dancer Lindsey Bourassa in artistic collaboration with dancer Megan Keogh, Canadian-Iranian painter Khosro Berahmandi, Kuwaiti singer Talal Alzefiri, and oud player Thomas Kovacevic. This live performance was documented in 2018 and then recreated on film in 2019 by Maine filmmakers David Camlin and Scott Sutherland.

The work integrates the symbolism of the wolf (el lobo) and the dove (la paloma) as understood through cross-cultural understandings of animal symbolism. Wolves are regarded as spirit teachers and pathfinders, those who face their death with dignity and go into the unknown to gather knowledge to then guide their pack. The dove is a symbol of the maternal spirit messenger who comes to lead her children safely from struggle and to guide their spirit onward. In El Lobo y La Paloma, the wolf embodies any departed, displaced being; the dove represents reunited ancestry and she who guides the sufferer out of suffering; the griever grieves in order to heal; the music guides our healing. Inspired by the loss of Bourassa’s father in 2015, El Lobo y La Paloma strives to honor the universal experience of loss, to highlight the reconstruction of our relationship with our lost one through the grieving process, and to foster a conversation about the importance of grief as vital to healing.

The film will be followed by a brief presentation by grief and bereavement educator Carol Schoneberg of Hospice of Southern Maine, as well as a Q&A with filmmakers and performers.

Price
General Admission | $15

Description
Rigoletto On The Lake
Directed and designed by Philipp Sto?lzl
Italian, with English subtitles
2hrs 20mins (including 15min intermission)
Rated PG-13

Verdi’s Thrilling Masterpiece Performed on the Breathtaking Bregenz Lake Stage
Giuseppe Verdi’s masterwork – compelling, blood-curdling and beautiful – is being performed for the first time on the breathtaking water stage of Lake Constance, Bregenz. One of Verdi’s most popular works, Rigoletto is an unforgettable tale of a sacrifice and revenge; of a father’s rage and a daughter’s shame. It features several of opera’s best-known arias-including Rigoletto’s passionate denouncement “Cortigiani, vil razza dannata,” Gilda’s dreamy “Caro nome” and the Duke’s instantly recognizable “La donna e? mobile.” Rigoletto was first performed in 1851 and is the first of the extraordinary “middle-period” trio of Verdi masterpieces that also includes LaTraviata and Il Trovatore.

Directed and designed by Philipp Sto?lzl, this timeless tragedy will delight audiences with a powerhouse combination of entertainment and emotional intensity from the spectacular shore of Lake Constance, Bregenz.

Please Note: Rigoletto on the Lake contains a sequence of flashing lights, which might affect viewers who are susceptible to photosensitivity.

Meet the Artist: Lynn Karlin

Showtime
March 11 | 5-7pm

Price
Free

Description
Lynn Karlin is the woman behind the current art exhibit on view in Frontier’s restaurant. Lynn’s body of work is about the obvious but often overlooked beauty of the harvest. Visits to photograph local Maine farmers markets took a new direction when she brought a stunning purple cauliflower back to her studio and placed it on an old white pedestal by an east-facing window, inspiring a new series that honors vegetables by literally placing them on a higher level. Lynn triumphs in showing her reverence for the remarkable colors and forms in the garden. “The Pedestal Series” and “The Tray Series” evoke, through beauty that is also sustenance, a sense of connectedness to this planet.

Join us for an evening celebrating this wonderful exhibit with a reception in our coffee bar where you can meet Lynn and peruse her work.

UUCB Concerts for a Cause: HEATHER MASSE and JED WILSON

Back by popular demand, Heather Masse and Jed Wilson return to the UUCB Concerts for a Cause series on Saturday, March 14, 2020 at 7:30 pm at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Brunswick, 1 Middle Street, Brunswick.

Maine native Heather Masse is well-known to audiences as a regular guest on the NPR radio show “A Prairie Home Companion,” both as a solo performer and as a member of the Billboard-charting folk supergroup, The Waylin’ Jennys.  On the show, Heather has collaborated with artists such as Elvis Costello, Wynton Marsalis, Sheryl Crow, Renee Fleming, and Emmylou Harris.  She has also performed in many venues and with other popular groups such as the bluegrass band The Wayfaring Strangers on NPR’s World Cafe, and at Boston’s Symphony Hall with the Boston Pops.

For this concert, Heather joins forces with jazz pianist Jed Wilson.  Heather and Jed met as jazz students at the New England Conservatory of Music and have been performing together for more than 10 years. Heather’s background is steeped in the jazz tradition, which informs her distinct approach to singing folk, pop and bluegrass.

Ms. Masse has released 2 CD’s of jazz-inspired folk duets with Mr. Wilson.  The title track of her first solo CD “Bird Song” won her 1st prize at the International Acoustic Music Awards.  She also won a prestigious Juno Award for “Bright Morning Stars,” her latest recording with The Wailin’ Jennys.

Masse exhibits impeccable phrasing and a lush sound that suggests the sensuousness of Sophie Milman shot through with somber, Sarah Vaughan threads.” — Jazz Times

Here’s a sample of Heather and Jed performing “Crazy.”

TICKETS:
$15 in advance, $18 at the door, $10 Students/Children.  Tickets available at the church office (729-8515), Gulf of Maine Books or online at masse.brownpapertickets.com

Two-thirds of the proceeds from this concert will benefit TEDFORD HOUSING (providing housing and services for the homeless) and OASIS FREE CLINICS (providing free medical and dental services for those who are uninsured and can’t afford insurance)
