B – The Underwater Bubble Show
March 19, 6:00pm

“The Underwater Bubble Show” tells the story of the fictitious Mr. B who, after another long day filled with things to do, meetings and deadlines to be met, Mr. B finds himself transported as if by magic in a special, colorful, happy place called Bubblelandia. How many of us have ever wanted, at least for a moment, to be able to stop time just to take a breath and daydream? The solution, in fact, is simple and accessible to us all: don’t be afraid to let yourself go. With references and quotes from classics such as “Pinocchio”, “The Little Mermaid”, “Beauty and the Beast”, and “The Golden Fish”, “B” is considered a modern fairy tale in which we can all find ourselves, without any age limits. The Underwater Bubble Show was produced with the help and support of the biggest authorities in the field of entertainment and theatre in Latvia. The well-balanced blend of drama, mime, dance, puppetry, juggling, contortionism, sand art and magic, with the amazing beauty of soap bubbles make “B” unique and perfect for any audience.

CANTUS Vocal Ensemble @ Whitney Center for the Arts

CANTUS Vocal Ensemble
February 2 at 7:00 pm

(Note that this concert is not part of the season ticket package)

The “engaging” (New Yorker) men’s vocal ensemble Cantus is widely known for its trademark warmth and blend, innovative programming and engaging performances of music ranging from the Renaissance to the 21st century. The Washington Post has hailed the Cantus sound as having both “exalting finesse” and “expressive power” and refers to the “spontaneous grace” of its music making. The Philadelphia Inquirer called the group nothing short of “exquisite.”

PROGRAM

By almost any measure, our ability to communicate has never been easier or more advanced. Yet, as the world grows exponentially smaller with new technologies, the rifts between nations, among communities, and in individual relationships only seem to widen. Exploring our struggle to build meaningful connection in a world that has never been more connected, Alone Together is anchored by a multi-movement setting of a Walt Whitman poem, “We Two”, by Steven Sametz, and also informed by David Lang’s modern exploration of yearning in his “Manifesto”. A brand new, multi-movement commission from Libby Larsen helps to celebrate a reaffirmation of our humanity through communication and a recognition of our universal need for understanding and acceptance. Join Cantus for an introspective look at what it means to connect in our modern world.
