What's Going On

Marvin Gaye is coming home

Dance Place and Vincent Thomas/VTDance

Sat March 4 - Sun March 5

A new full-length dance piece set to the ground-breaking music of Marvin Gaye looks at life, love and social justice.

Vincent E. Thomas looks through the lens of Marvin Gaye’s transcendent music and finds a reflection of the world today. Taking inspiration from 1971’s inimitable What’s Going On, Marvin Gaye’s insights into life, love and social justice are given fresh perspectives with new choreography by Vincent E. Thomas, Ralph Glenmore and Sylvia Soumah. This evening-length work features Modern, Jazz and West African dance. What’s Going On seeks to provoke reflection and spark conversations to ignite change in each community it touches.

Todd Marcus Quintet, Quartet, and Trio

Fri March 10 - Sun March 12

Bass clarinetist, composer, and bandleader Todd Marcus is one of the few jazz artists worldwide to focus their work primarily on the bass clarinet. Though use of bass clarinet in jazz typically leans heavily towards avant-garde and free-jazz styles, Marcus’ straight-ahead playing has carved out a unique voice for the instrument in modern jazz. His music swings hard with both a fiery and introspective intensity but also maintains a strong lyrical sensibility.

Based in Baltimore, MD, Marcus actively leads small ensembles such as the Todd Marcus Quartet, Trio, and Duo as well as his nine piece band The Todd Marcus Jazz Orchestra on original compositions and jazz standards.

March 10-12 Theatre Project features the range of Marcus’ diverse work by presenting three of his different ensembles including:

March 10 - Todd Marcus Quintet  with bass clarinet, vibraphone, piano, bass and drums. The performance will feature compositions written by Marcus to capture elements of his west Baltimore neighborhood where the death of community member Freddie Grey in April 2015 led to the city's subsequent civil unrest. As a musician who has also worked as a community activist in his neighborhood for 20 years (at his nonprofit Intersection of Change), Marcus' new compositions seek to portray both the challenges and strengths of his community and find beauty in each.

March 11 - Todd Marcus Quartet with bass clarinet/clarinet, piano, bass, and drums featuring music from the band’s 2012 album Inheritance with jazz standards and Marcus’ original compositions that uniquely incorporate Middle Eastern influences into jazz. Includes music performed by Marcus in Egypt at the 2015 Cairo Jazz Festival.

March 12 - Todd Marcus Trio with bass clarinet/clarinet, bass, and drums featuring compositions by Marcus, Sonny Rollins, and Bennie Maupin. The trio showcases Marcus’ harmonically rich improvising and highlights his work transforming the bass clarinet from an obscure peripheral instrument to one of power and intricacy capable of strongly leading a driving small group format.

Impacting Spaces

Deep Vision Dance Company, RebollarDance, ReallivePeople

Fri March 17 - Sat March 18

Deep Vision Dance Company (Baltimore), RebollarDance (DC), and RealLivePeople (Philadelphia) go on a collaborative, three-city tour.  Presenting works in their beloved home cities and that of each other’s, the companies investigate “space” in unique ways – the space of creation, psychological spaces, and the perceived space between us.  Deep Vision’s Matter, Energy, Human delves into the nature of human existence and our connection to the greater universe.  RebollarDance’s Space Junk parallels the folds of space-time with psychological spaces of the mind.  RealLivePeople’s Presenting: You First, with the hope for reciprocation investigates the tenacious, inner conflict of identity as a motivating force for social behavior.  Imaginative, athletic, and rich in detail, Impacting Spaces addresses universal concepts and drives audiences to reflect on the visible and invisible world around us.

Deep Vision Dance Company’s Matter, Energy, Human delves into the intersections between quantum physics, metaphysical theory, and the human experience.  Each section uncovers the visual beauty of unfolding physical phenomena while illuminating the complex, yet delicate, human condition – physically, emotionally, spiritually, and as a universal whole. Deepak Chopra’s writings in Everyday Immortality: A Concise Course in Spiritual Transformation impact the connective fabric of the work.  Audiences witness two storylines – (1) energy and matter and (2) the seemingly concrete human experience – that parallel, impact, weave, crescendo, and eventually converge.  Collaborator Timothy Nohe composes the evolving, oscillating sound score.

RebollarDance’s Space Junk is the result of an intensive collaborative process of experimentation between movement, light and sound, an original score based on mechanical algorithms, and unusual use of lighting design and projection.  Space Junk, astronomy’s definition of orbital debris created by humans, is used by RebollarDance as a metaphor for the rubble that lives and dies within our minds as past experiences, outdated ideas and misfired thoughts.  The work highlights the dialogue of the body as it negotiates interplanetary worlds and psychological spaces.

RealLivePeople shares Presenting: You First, with the hope for reciprocation, a highly physical and personal duet between Artistic Director Gina Hoch-Stall and Philadelphia dance artist Scott McPheeters. Presenting originally premiered at the 2014 “Evening of Duets” in University City, Philadelphia.  In March 2015, it was selected for the opening night gala at the American College Dance Association conference at West Chester University. These early performances encouraged co-choreographers Gina Hoch-Stall and Scott McPheeters to push further into the territories of identity, social status, “winning someone over” and how to do your best. Facilitated by dramaturge Sara Nye, the expanded version probes into the darker side of being a “people pleaser” and compromising oneself for outside approval.

Edith Can Shoot Things and Hit Them

by A. Rey Pamatmat

Iron Crow Theatre

Fri March 31 - Sun April 2

Three kids - Kenny, his sister Edith, and their friend Benji - are all but abandoned on a farm in remotest Middle America. With little adult supervision, they feed and care for each other, making up the rules as they go. But when Kenny's and Benji's relationship becomes more than friendship, and Edith shoots something she really shouldn't shoot, the formerly indifferent outside world comes barging in whether they want it to or not. Tender, at times charming and full of heart, this coming of age story explores the gap between childhood and whatever comes next; forcing us to engage with what it means to remain young when exposed to the adult world far too quickly.

** Please note that Edith Can Shoot Things and Hit Them explores mature themes, contains adult language, sexual content and violence, and may not be suitable for patrons under the age of 18.
