ModERIN SWINGS: Darrah Carr Dance with Tara O'Grady & her Black Velvet Band
APAP Booth 1024, Americas Hall I
Greetings and happy holidays!
2015 has been a year of change as Piccadilly Arts has refocused on working with a smaller number of artists and projects to better serve our constituents. The business has also created premium marketing and business packages for artists, creative and entrepreneurs. I hope you’ll stop by the booth at APAP to learn more.
And speaking of APAP…It looms. Truthfully, it’s my most favorite conference simply because there is so much going on and the work and people and projects have continued to inspire me since my first time attending in 2003. (It also delays the inevitable post-holiday let down)!
Here is a quick run-down of the artists/projects/tours I’m representing for 16/17 and APAP showcases:
Pig Iron Theatre Company - GENTLEMEN VOLUNTEERS
Philadelphia’s OBIE winning theatre company reprises their most acclaimed production to commemorate the 100th anniversary of WWI. A new cast brings this sweeping drama of American idealism and unlikely love affairs to life. The intimate contemporary piece is available November-December 2016. Mid Atlantic Tours roster and funding available.
Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers - HOME/S. 9TH STREET
Philadelphia’s contemporary dance company explores the concept of Home, American-ness and immigration. A powerful timeless story that weaves local immigrants stories told through the narrative of contemporary dance and done in such an authentic and graceful way that only Kun-Yang, himself an immigrant, can do.
Showcase: KYL/D will showcase several pieces from their diverse repertoire. Friday January 15, City Center Studios, Studio 4, 9:30pm
Darrah Carr Dance - MODERIN, MODERIN SWINGS, A CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION
Are you looking for an exciting and upbeat Irish dance and music program? ModERIN and Ceiliuradh Na Nollag: A Christmas Celebration are two touring projects by the NYC based Darrah Carr Dance. The programs blend river dance style percussive dance with modern dance elements and live and recorded music for a performance that is loads of fun and accessible for all ages. ModERIN SWINGS features jazz vocalist Tara O'Grady and her Black Velvet Band. Available to celebrate the luck of the Irish in March, for festivals in the summer, or the holiday program in December.
Showcases: Saturday, January 16, Hilton NY, Trianon Ballroom, 3rd Fl, 7:30pm; STAM-PEDE Sunday, January 17, Symphony Space, 3:00pm
I’m currently scheduling meetings during and outside of hall hours to discuss the projects and tours. Please email or call me before the break to get your pick of days/times! We know how fast the holidays and the conference approaches and how quickly schedules fill - so reach out to me today.
Cheers and have a wonderful holiday season and new year.
