Stray Dog Theatre presents "A Little Night Music," with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim; and book by Hugh Wheeler.

Dates: October 6-22, 2022. 8 PM Thursdays - Saturdays. Additional performance 2 PM Sunday, October 16 and 8 PM Wednesday, October 19.

Synopsis: Set in a weekend country house in turn of the century Sweden, this musical farce brings together surprising liaisons, long simmering passions, and a taste of love’s endless possibilities. Hailed as witty and wildly romantic, the story centers on the elegant actress Desirée Armfeldt and the spider’s web of sensuality, intrigue, and desire that surrounds her.

BUNNY BURSON: Connected

Bruno David is pleased to present "Connected", an exhibition of mixed media work by Bunny Burson. This is the artist’s sixth solo exhibition with the gallery. Bunny Burson’s recent body of artwork is part of a decades-long exploration of her family history. Her fascination with scientific breakthroughs, in particular the mapping of the human genome, led her to add digital fabrication to her artwork. Burson said “I wanted to link my DNA to my ancestors’ and this sequencing led to new imagery, processes, and knowledge.”

“On our family’s bookshelves were my father’s century old German schoolbooks, brought from Berlin in 1938. It was the typeface, the paper and the German titles which sparked my interest. To re-discover and alter these books was meaningful, as reading was an important part of growing up in our family. The fragile, faded book pages in German became the perfect platform for high-tech 3D chromosomes connecting me to previous generations.”

ADRIAN GONZALEZ: Lonchando in the Grass

Bruno David is pleased to present "Lonchando in the Grass", an exhibition by Florida-based artist Adrian Gonzalez. This will be his first solo exhibition with the gallery. Adrian Gonzalez speaks and uses the hybrid language of Spanglish — a language spoken commonly in the United States — to reflect cultural interaction that underlies our contemporary moment. He uses the exchange between Spanish and English through playful yet provocative bilingual phrases, expressions, and unstructured ideas of language that are meant to communicate new thinking and describe his work. He associates the combative, improvisatory creation of words with artistic methods in his studio practice to make collage and assemblage paintings, sculptures, and prints from a variety of drawn, printed, painted, sculpted, and found elements.

CHARLES BURSON: America Dystopia America

Bruno David is pleased to present "America Dystopia America", a video work by Colorado-based artist Charles Burson. This is artist’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. Using appropriated contemporary images, (from newspapers, television, twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and other online sources) tumbled, fragmentized, and granulated, Charles Burson seeks to evoke the threat of America becoming that fictionalized society portrayed in grand dystopian films and novels. Burson says “The foundation for such societies is dysfunctional government, teeming, violent and desperately poor masses and an overclass of wealthy, privileged, uncaring overlords. The events, divisions, and societal conditions of America’s Trump era, Covid and until now, the Biden era, evoke the conditions of such a dystopian society. At the core of this is a collapsing national consensus in and of America, the disappearance of which promotes conflict, stagnation, deep cultural divisions and a chasm of wealth and inequality.”

Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and cable are reshaping us and our world into one in which there are multiple truths and alternative realities. They are fostered and reinforced by the personal information silos into which we are herded and shaped by our media platforms and their algorithms. The screens into which we obsessively view are depersonalizing our interactions and corrupting our capacity to empathize. They are destroying our ability to hold and share a national consensus on what America is and should be. Opinion writer Ezra Klein articulates this phenomenon, in his recent New York Times interview with the author, Richard Powers.

Focal Point Friends of Traditional Jazz, Blues & Ragtime are happy to welcome back The Lovestruck Balladeers! The Lovestruck Balladeers enchant audiences with their masterful performances and inspired repertoire of ragtime, jazz and beautiful songs from around the world. They might whip out a lost melody from a forgotten mandolin folio or they might play a Mexican waltz. They might push into a renegade rearrangement of a swing standard or get down with a country rag. They are the five scorpion sons of a West Virginia dance hall, a Little Italy tourist attraction and a Oaxacan birthday party. Together or on their own paths, this stellar band of traveling musicians has traversed the country and the globe, carrying traditional styles into modern times. The versatile quintet features twin fiddles, clarinet, guitars, a mandolin trio, upright bass, banjo, piano and vocal harmonies. Their repertoire is a rare repository of American and international music seldom heard beyond the walls of low-lit dance halls at the edge of the known world. The past never sounded so palpable.

The Lovestruck Balladeers are Jake Sanders, Aaron Jonah Lewis, Dennis Lichtman, Sean Cronin and Dalton Ridenhour.
