Internationally renowned DV8 Physical Theatre bring their powerful new production to the National Theatre. DV8 Physical Theatre has produced 18 highly acclaimed dance-theatre works and four films for television, which have garnered over 50 national and international awards.

“Bold, involving and utterly unique. Hannes Langolf’s central performance is simply devastating in its impact and empathy.” – Daily Telegraph

The company’s new production, John, authentically depicts real-life stories, combining movement and spoken word to create an intense and moving theatrical experience. Lloyd Newson, DV8’s Artistic Director, interviewed more than 50 men asking them frank questions, initially about love and sex. One of those men was John (played by Hannes Langolf). What emerged was a story that is both extraordinary and touching. Years of crime, drug use and struggling to survive lead John on a search in which his life converges with others, in an unexpected place, unknown by most. Don’t miss this eagerly anticipated new production, broadcast live from the National Theatre. (Running time TBA, Not Rated / Contains adult themes, strong language and nudity. Suitable for ages 18+)

Subject: Final Weekend for Arizona Onstage Productions' The Story of My Life

 

How about wrapping up your theater-going holiday season by attending one of only three remaining performances of Arizona Onstage Productions' musical "The Story of My Life," (music and lyrics by Neil Bartram, book by Brian Hill) playing Friday, Saturday (7:30pm) and Sunday (2:30pm) at the Cabaret Space, Temple of Music and Art?

 

Kathy Allen of The Arizona Daily Star said in her review, "Come on, how can you not love it?" She went on . . . "This production with Jeremy Vega and Tyler Wright as lifelong friends who visit the past via songs was sweet and tender." And "Vega and Wright have beautiful voices, and they both firmly planted their feet in the shoes of the characters." In The Tucson Weekly Sherilyn Forrester praised the singers and the musicians . . . "There are some wonderfully soaring voices accompanied by three first-rate musicians under the direction of Bill Patterson." Chuck Graham liked the themes of friendship and love. "Fans of Facebook are perpetually plastered with homilies about the value of lifelong friendships. Arizona Onstage Productions takes the message far deeper in its hauntingly poignant production "The Story of My Life," a two-person musical performed without any mimes or tap dancers on a one-set stage using street clothes for costumes. Kevin Johnson the director, and Bill Patterson the music director, have these two singers creating unforgettable emotional experiences on stage. Adding the orchestral framework are Julie Wypych, reeds, Rex Colin Mitchell, cello, and Patterson, piano."

Parade of Lights To Brighten Armory Park December 20th - Downtown Tucson Partnership

PARADE OF LIGHTS TO BRIGHTEN ARMORY PARK DECEMBER 20TH

If you’ve never seen an antique fire truck wrapped in Christmas lights from front to back, you’re missing out. It’s a sight to see, and you can see it in Tucson’s annual Downtown Parade of Lights and Festival on Dec. 20th.
This year, the parade marks its 20th anniversary, and the annual glowing gathering has come a long way, said Brandi Haga-Blackman, Operations and Events Manager for the non-profit that organizes the parade, the Downtown Tucson Partnership.
“It started with about five entries, and the procession just went around the library. They just kept going around, because it was so small,” Haga-Blackman said.
The concept is simple. Just deck your floats, vehicles or selves in lights, and BAM! You’re in a parade.
Last year more than 700 people walked, marched or rolled along the route, but organizers expect over 1,700 people this year.
Over 1,700 participants are expected to participate in the 20th Annual Downtown Parade of Lights.
Over 1,700 participants are expected to participate in the 20th Annual Downtown Parade of Lights.
The scores of entries include the Old Pueblo Vintage Fire Brigade, which is the Cactus Chapter of the S.P.A.A.M.F.A.A., otherwise known as the Society for the Preservation and Appreciation of Antique Motor Fire Apparatus in America.
Tucson Parks & Recreation KIDCO has an entry, as do Valley of the Moon and Southwest Truck Driver Training, a group that will presumably bring a decorated semi. There are even private families entered.
“As long as you have lights, you can pretty much do anything,” Haga-Blackman said.
Starting at 4 p.m., you can enjoy dinner and a cup of hot chocolate at Armory Park, where the Partnership will host a gathering of craft vendors, carnival games, music and food.
Wendy’s and Kettle Korn will be at the festival, as will Wicked Burgers and the Lao Student Club. Yum. At 6 p.m., Mayor Jonathan Rothschild will light the city Christmas tree.
Although the parade is mostly fun and games, it is a competition. Prizes will be awarded for best historical or cultural theme, best musical group (marching band, anyone?) and of course, best use of lights.
More than 65 entries will participate in the 2014 parade.
More than 65 entries will participate in the 2014 parade.
Judges will announce the awards right after the parade, and results will be posted on the Downtown Tucson website andFacebook page.
The 2014 Downtown Parade of Lights is presented by Carondelet St. Mary’s. Sponsors who make Parade of Lights possible include My 92.9, 93.7 KRQ, Mister Car Wash, KXCI, Arizona Daily Star, Tucson News Now, Tierra Antigua Downtown, and Wendy’s .
The Downtown Parade of Lights and festival is Dec. 20. The festival begins at 4 p.m., and the parade starts at 6:30.
Volunteers are needed to help stage entries, manage the thousands of people expected to attend and generally make it all happen. No special skills needed – just bring a dose of holiday spirit and a smile.
If you want to help, contact Brandi Haga-Blackman at brandi@downtowntucson.org. For more information, a map of the route, and pictures of past Parade of Lights entries, click here.
