American Showstoppers and Art History Alive

Two fan favorites are back! American Showstoppers featuring the Fred Barton Orchestra and his star-studded cast take on Broadway legend Richard Rodgers. Plus, Pace Professor Janetta Rebold Benton, PhD, returns to the Schimmel to take you on a journey through France’s fascinating art.

ART HISTORY ALIVE: France’s Fascinating Art
October 9, 11:00 a.m. | October 16, 11:00 a.m. | October 23, 11:00 a.m. | October 30, 11:00 a.m.

From the Great Medieval cathedrals to Post-Impressionism, spend your Wednesdays delving into France’s fascinating art as Pace Presents welcomes Pace Distinguished Professor and renowned art historian Janetta Rebold Benton, PhD, back to the Schimmel for her third lecture series.

France is unequaled for her range of artistic styles and accomplishment—always with unparalleled French elegance and sophistication. Travel vicariously through the ages as these richly-illustrated lectures examine the highpoints of architecture, sculpture, painting, and decorative arts in France, from the late Middle Ages through Post-Impressionism, approximately 1000-1900.

October 9Middle Ages: Romanesque and Gothic cathedrals, sculpture, and stained glass: Romanesque, monsters, morals, and building methods from Autun to Vezelay. Gothic soaring cathedrals—Notre-Dame-de-Paris, Chartres, and Beauvais, too skeletal to avoid collapse.

October 16Renaissance and Baroque: Chateaux of the Loire Valley; Poussin, Louis XIV at Versailles: Join Renaissance and Baroque French royalty and enjoy life in the splendid chateaux and gardens of Chambord, Chenonceau, Versailles, and elsewhere.

October 23—Rococo, Neoclassicism, Romanticism, and Realism: Boucher, David, Gericault, Manet: The pendulum swings from light Rococo pastel fluff, to austere severe Neoclassicism, to Romantic escapes, and finally to the everyday genre scenes of Realism.

October 30—Impressionism and Post-Impressionism: Monet, Renoir, Degas, van Gogh, Gauguin, Cezanne, Seurat: Impressionist and Post-Impressionist artists depicted subjects from daily life, but while the Impressionists painted in terms of light and atmospheric conditions, the Post-Impressionists used color to express emotion and to analyze pictorial structure.

The Conversation Continues: Lunch with the Lecturer will also be held after each lecture.

Sannidhi (Sacred Space)
Saturday, October 5, 7:30 p.m.
The New York Times called her “thrillingly three-dimensional” and “enchantingly beautiful.” Dance Magazine, who named her one of the “25 to Watch” described her as “a marvel of buoyant agility and sculptural clarity.” On October 5, dancer and choreographer Aparna Ramaswamy, a protégé of legendary Bharatanatyam artist Alarmel Valli, will present the U.S. premiere of Sannidhi, illuminating the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine whose timeless duality forms the continuous pulse of the universe. In five sections, her work weaves together music and movement, rhythm and lyric, spirit and emotion, creating an invisible link between dancer, musicians, and audience.

And the best part? Student tickets cost just $5 for each show. Get ‘em while they’re hot at the Schimmel box office.

Next up at the Schimmel: Pace Distinguished Professor Janetta Rebold Benton, PhD, returns with her art history lecture series featuring France’s fascinating art beginning on October 9 and the Fred Barton Orchestra presents an evening with Richard Rodgers as part of the star-studded American Showstoppers series on October 12.

Hot Diggety, Dogfight!

A Marine and an awkward waitress. Ugly date contests. A pop-rock musical. What more can you ask for? Check out Pace Performing Arts students’ 2013-2014 season opener Dogfight on October 2–9.

Boy meets girl. Boy takes girl to a humiliating ugly date dance. Boy realizes he’s a jerk. That’s the gist of Dogfight, the first in a series of Pace Performing Arts productions.

The night before shipping off to Vietnam, four Marines prepare to attend a “dogfight” (the annual dance where Marines compete to bring the ugliest date), but when 18-year-old Marine Corporal Eddie Birdlace meets charmingly clumsy waitress Rose, the game changes.

Pace Performing Arts students present the 2013 Lucille Lortel award-winning Dogfight, written by Peter Duchan and with a pop-rock musical score by Tony Award nominees Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, who all made a special appearance at Pace’s first rehearsal and chatted with students.

BFA Musical Theatre program Director Amy Rogers will direct the production.

Performances will be held in Schaeberle Studio on the 10th floor of 41 Park Row on the following dates:

October 2-4, 8:00 p.m.
October 5, 2:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.
October 6, 1:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.
October 8-9, 8:00 p.m.

Tickets are available for purchase online here.

In Full Swing

Gypsy swing electrifies the Schimmel Theatre as Pace Presents brings Django’s Dream, a Gypsy swing festival, to the NYC Campus on September 28.

On Saturday, September 28, a group of the world’s leading Gypsy jazz guitarists will bring the work of the late, great French guitarist and composer, Django Reinhardt on the Schimmel stage. For one unforgettable night, Django’s Dream celebrates Gypsy swing of the 1930s in unexpected ways under the artistic direction of guitarist and composer Stephane Wrembel. Wrembel, who has been called “a revelation” by Rolling Stone and who composed the music for Woody Allen’s last two films will be joined by Kamlo, who interprets Django via the Mediterranean, and Flamenco and Gypsy swing-style guitar master Alfonso Ponticelli.

The electrifying sounds of three of the world’s leading Gypsy jazz artists—who each share a deep knowledge of Django’s style yet express it in individual ways—will move effortlessly between beloved Gypsy jazz standards and stunning improvisations ending in a spectacular super jam finale. Artists will also be joined by Django’s granddaughter, Dotschy Reinhardt.

So who was Django and why was he considered one of the greatest jazz guitar players of all time? Django Reinhardt learned to play the violin and banjo in the traditional Roma practice of “playing by ear” and mimicking the fingering of older generations. By the age of 13, he was making a living off of his musical gifts. When Django was 18, a fire left his left ring and pinky fingers paralyzed and doctors doubted that he would ever be able to play guitar again. Refusing to give up on his musical career, Django retaught himself to play the guitar, making use of only two fingers. Django’s ability to triumph has inspired many musicians throughout history, including Jerry Garcia of The Grateful Dead and Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath, who both lost fingers to accidents.

$5 student balcony tickets are available for advance purchase at the box office. Student rush orchestra tickets are available for purchase at the box office on the day of the performance (subject to availability). All student tickets are cash sales only. For more information, visit http://schimmel.pace.edu. You can also read more about this event on the Schimmel blog.

Wondering if there’s a connection between Django Reinhardt and Django Unchained? Pace Presents blogger Michael Torbet breaks it down for you in his latest Vlog.
