Looking Ahead: Dance, Spoken Word and More!
We’ve got an exciting lineup for you this week! We’re starting off with a free event on Wednesday night at 6 p.m. with our first ever Broadway on Tap event at Rí Rá Irish Pub. Join us for an exclusive opportunity to sit down with Blumenthal Performing Arts President and CEO Tom Gabbard as he discusses current happenings and future projects on Broadway. Learn how the projects affect Blumenthal and the city of Charlotte and the influential role Blumenthal plays for Broadway in New York. Light hors d’oeuvres will be offered, and all Blumenthal members will receive one complimentary beverage on us! CLICK HERE to RSVP!
Next, MOMIX Botanica is finally here! Thursday night at 7:30 p.m. and Friday night at 8 p.m. we’ll experience an eclectic score ranging from birdsong to Vivaldi at the Knight Theater. An herbal remedy and natural aphrodisiac, Botanica shows off the endlessly renewable energy of the superb MOMIX performers, with costumes, projections and custom-made props and puppetry adding an extra dose of fantasy to the elixir. This is dance at its most organic and inventive! CLICK HERE for tickets!
One of Blumenthal’s monthly poetry slams also takes place Friday night at 8 p.m. This event, at Booth Playhouse in Blumenthal Performing Arts Center, is hosted by SlamCharlotte, Charlotte’s own two-time national championship team of spoken word poetry (2007 and 2008). SlamCharlotte promotes poetic growth, performance enhancement and increased camaraderie among the poets and the community through the monthly slam competitions. SlamCharlotte’s current Slammaster, Bluz, is the 13th ranked individual poet in the world. CLICK HERE to grab your tickets! Due to adult language and content, this event is not recommended for children.
