Facing West Shadow Opera @Central CMR

Join us in the 3rd floor Community Meeting Room for Facing West Shadow Opera's production of "The Euphoria of Walt Whitman," a live Baroque puppet opera exploring queer poet Walt Whitman’s obsession with the traveling operas of the Wild West, phrenology, and the gold rush era. Shadow puppets are accompanied by live music written by Purcell, Monteverdi, Caccini, George Crumb and improvisation 
 
Facing West Shadow Opera hybridizes art forms to create unique performances, each akin to a live graphic novel with euphoria-inducing chamber music.

Urban Africana Dance Workshop @Central CMR

Join us in the third floor community meeting room for an Urban Africana dance class led by Andréa Spearman.
 
Urban Africana dance uses movements from African styles, hip hop, modern/contemporary, and improv.
It bridges the gap between these genres and shows their parallel origins. You'll learn style while working up a sweat!
 
Please wear sneakers and clothes that allow you to move freely.
 
Instructor Andréa Spearman is the founder & choreographer of A. Spearman &Co.
