DOUBLE-PASS (PERFORMING ARTS SALON SERIES)
HELGA DAVIS AND SHAYFER JAMES
APRIL 25 2015
5PM: PRE-PERFORMANCE RECEPTION
6PM: HELGA DAVIS
8PM: SHAYFER JAMES
Both performances take place at the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art, Bldg. C.
Helga Davis’ piece, “Things fall apart”, features Ms. Davis in an intimate performance at the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art. Her critically acclaimed work offers an experience that is both visually and audibly stunning.
Try. Try again. Try harder, and then watch as things fall apart. Fear, anxiety, longing. Hope? No. That’s going to take a little longer. Things fall apart is what happens – the stories, the sounds, the songs – the standing in the moment. Come, and find yourself.
Post-Performance Q & A Moderated by Sajda Musawwir Ladner. of Universal Temple of The Arts
New York indie artist Shayfer James and his band will weave musical landscapes with piano-driven anthems that conjure the gauzy, sweaty sexuality of gulf coast barrooms with the fantastic, narcotic mysticism of a Lewis Carroll-inspired three-ring circus. Shayfer James and his band are presented in collaboration with Rekkege.
Admission to each concert is $10. Admission to both is $15.

APRIL 26 2015
2PM: Carnegie Kids Concert Series
Snug Harbor’s Music Hall
For kids and the young-at-heart, Emily Eagen and the Whistling Wolves will be sure to entertain. The performance will explore children’s flights of fancy to turn familiar concepts on their heads. Emily and her string band sing and whistle everything from early music to traditional Americana. They use spoons, bones, jaw harps and jugs, along with singing, whistling, and ukulele playing to get audiences clapping, stomping and cheering.
This concert is part of the Carnegie Kids concert series in cooperation with Snug Harbor’s Youth Matters series.
