From FWRH: New Video for “The Dog from Tula” by Uli Lenz

“The dog is the story, and Tula is the place…”

The latest mix of jazz piano & poetry with original piano composition composed and performed by Uli Lenz. It’s a live recording from Uli’s latest solo album “Dance Manana”, recorded and available from HGBS Studios. The poem is a collaboration with Native American writer/poet Red Haircrow. The video was created through Flying with Red Haircrow Productions.

Photo of Mr. Lenz with titling “Uli Lenz” was taken by Anja I. Schnapka. Other photos of Mr. Lenz were taken by Red Haircrow.

NEW! A Jazz Collaboration-Poetry & Piano: “Conejitos Amarillos” with Uli Lenz

NEW! From Flying With Red Haircrow Productions:

Poetry can be many things & come in many forms: just like jazz! “Conejitos Amarillos” is a short energetic piece composed and performed by client and friend, the German jazz pianist Uli Lenz, combined with a poem by Red Haircrow. Inspired by Lenz’s thoughts on the song’s creation and the combination of jazz and animation in the iconic Tom & Jerry cartoons, Red Haircrow created a simple but fast moving musical story of comedic gravity about the idiosyncracies of rabbits.

 

A Unique Experience By #Yu’pik Director: SHORE #Dance Performance, October 11-18th

unnamed(Photo from Native Arts & Cultures Foundation)

“SHORE is a multi-day performance installed in four equal parts:

Dance, Story, Volunteerism & Feast.”

“If you are seeking an amazing arts adventure and live in or near Seattle, Wash., it is not too late to attend and/or participate in “SHORE”.

“SHORE” examines the metaphorical convergence of environments—beginning where land meets water and vice-versa called ‘shore.’  “SHORE’s” performance incorporates the elements of volunteerism, story and dance and concludes with a “feast” – all of which result in a dynamic and powerful community participatory experience.

Choreographed and directed by Emily Johnson (Yup’ik), “SHORE” is an outstanding  achievement in innovative installation dance performance and community engagement.  Ms. Johnson’s work further advocates for the principles incorporated in traditional Native culture that emphasize the value placed on social equity within the broader community.

The last opportunity to experience “SHORE”  will be in Seattle the week of October 11th through 18th, 2015, when it completes its 2015 tour at various locations to be announced.

To become involved as an audience member or participant, choose any of these event dates:

  • STORY, October 11:  Local writers share their work relating to home, place and land in a curated reading at Hugo House.
  • VOLUNTEERISM, TBA:  Community members are invited to come together to address an issue of local concern through action.
  • PERFORMANCE, October 15-17:  The heart of the project is a multi-layered dance piece featuring community singers and movers together with dancers from Emily’s group, Catalyst Dance. Performances will be held at On the Boards.
  • FEAST, October 18:  SHORE ends in a community potluck. Participants are invited to bring dishes to share with the gathered community.

“SHORE” is one of the Native Arts and Cultures Foundation’s Community Inspiration Projects. For more information about SHORE and Seattle locations, please go to the SHORE website.
