A new pop-electronica choral experience (with hot chocolate recipe)

By Stephanie Singer

Friday December 4 at 8PM EST

Tickets: $5, $10, $25

Board this New Symmetry flight and travel through the unstable terrain of an emotional landscape as formed by PTSD. Composed & recorded by Stephanie Singer during her residency in Russia in March 2020, the score weaves six electronica/choral songs together to form one continuous piece of music. Produced by Amanda Mayo (Slow Shudder), whose luminous and immersive sound design envelopes the listener, New Symmetry unfolds like a stream of consciousness triggered by the question: is it possible for a person to change? Each song is an intimate window into Singer’s own emotional patterns, and between each song is spoken text intertwined with music.

New Symmetry is part album, part podcast and part pep-talk. It seeks to inspire people to open themselves up, to look at their emotional patterns & rhythms, and to see what happens when they embrace the idea that the world is changing constantly, every cell is in flux. A futuristic, surreal polyphonic choral piece which could be seen as a form of much needed therapy for today, it comes with its own hot chocolate recipe to sip while you watch.

Singer (UK) wrote the music whilst in Yekaterinburg in March 2020. Collaborators are producer Mayo (Seattle, USA), designer Freyja Sewell (London, UK), illustrator Maria Medem (Seville, Spain), dancer Natalya Levchenko (Yekaterinburg, RU), chef Alina Kuznetcova (Yekaterinburg, RU), translator Alexandra Yaroslavtseva (Yekaterinburg, RU), Adam Bernet (London UK) and singer Inna Medvedeva (Yekaterinburg, RU).

Featuring Ben Grinberg & Rhonda Moore

Wednesday December 9 at 7PM EST (talkback after show)
Friday December 11 at 7PM EST
Sunday December 13 at 7PM EST

Tickets: $10, $20, $30

Ben Grinberg has had a crush on Rhonda Moore for a while. Well, maybe it’s not a crush. It’s something warm and squirmy, and the feeling is mutual.

Fun with Dick & Jane: Working Title is an energetic and physical encounter between two bodies and two artists, Ben Grinberg (Philadelphia’s Almanac Dance Circus Theatre) and Rhonda Moore (Bill T. Jones Company founding member). Over the course of one day in a studio together, they get to know each other through a series of improvisational scores and a sharing of intimate and mundane details. Dealing with the fraught-ness of human touch but the necessity of connection during a time of pandemic isolation, an intergenerational and cross-racial relationship discovers its limits through movement, humor and multi-layered video art. With witty, goofy and sketchy movement moments, and under the circumstances bravely danced, Fun with Dick & Jane: Working Title is fun for all and will warm you up on a cold winter night.

Maybe there will be some special guests who Zoom in, maybe there will be Peppermint Joe-Joes from Trader Joe’s, maybe there will be a mental breakdown because Santa’s been ignoring Mrs. Claus for the last three months and yes it’s like this every year when he gets into the busy season but this year feels…different. Guaranteed to get you in the Christmas spirit, guaranteed to make you laugh, guaranteed to confuse the hell out of you.
