Subject: CARLOS VALDEZ Teaching Drumming - DANCE WORKSHOP June 5th


BRASILIAN and CUBAN ORIXA INSPIRED MOVEMENT: A Dance Workshop with Esteban Sanchez

4:00 -6:00 PM
Rhythm Industry Performance Factory
1013 S. Tyndall Ave
$10/ $5 students with ID

Live Drumming with Sol Axe and guest drummer CARLOS VALDEZ!

Join Esteban for this workshop to explore the differences between Brasilian and Cuban Orixa/Orisha Inspired Movement. This workshop will explore the movement and focus on the finer details of the expression, as well as learning short choreography to explore the movement. We will also:

  • Learning a series of movement, then elaborate on the full and fine details of the specific body movement and the feeling it should produce. This will be at a slower pace.
  • Movement across the floor, where possible split in 2 parts, Brasilian & Cuban
  • Short choreography mainly consisting of moves taken across the floor

This workshop is strongly influenced by the format of Silvestre Technique classes, with the study and exploration of what is possible with the body through expressive movement.

Esteban Sanchez is the Dance Director and Choreographer for Sol Axe, and has been dancing and performing in the Tucson Community for over 12 years. He has studied, danced, and performed the music and dance of the Latin American and African Diaspora cultures with many groups and artists, including Sol Axe, many West African performance groups, Richard Noel and Sticks and Fingers, Rosangela Silvestre, and more. In 2015 he traveled to Salvador, Brazil to study with Rosangela Silvestre for her Silvestre Training, and has attended California Brazil Camp for several years, studying with many, many master teachers from Brazil.

In addition to his incredibly passionate movement expression, and his gift of choreography, Esteban is an accomplished musician and singer.




CARLOS VALDEZ is here! He is visitng from BARD COLLEGE in NEW YORK, where he is adjunct professor of percussion and heads up the school's bateria BARD SAMBISTAS!

Carlos has an extensive resume including composing the music for the Broadway production of "Bring in Da Noise, Bring in Da Funk" and George Wolfe's production of "The Tempest." Collaborations include: Garth Fagan (choreographer of the Lion King), Rosie Perez, Ann Pollack and Magica on their recent CD, "Worlds Collide", Mambo Macoco, Jellybean Benitez and many more.

He'll be sharing some variations Samba Reggae, Maractu, and more. He'll also be available for private lessons, and seciotnals/semi private groups - not only is Brazilian percussion, folkloric, but also Cuban.

Workshop is held during Sol Axe rehearsal at Rhythm Industry Performance Factory, 1013 S. Tyndall Ave.


Don't miss it, Carlos is a blast!




Our Mission Statement:

Sol Axé (pronounced, Sol – ah –SHAY) a project under Many Mouths One Stomach, is a nonprofit drum and dance community in Tucson, Arizona. Inspired by the music of Brazil, Sol Axe features the music of many traditions from Brazil, the African Diaspora, and the World. Our intention is to inspire creativity, inclusiveness, community solidarity, and collective JOY, through lessons and classes, outreach programs, workshops, and high energy performances. We collaborate with individuals and groups in Tucson, the nation, and around the globe, bringing the opportunity for artistic expression to all..

Casting Call, red haired male actor age 17 to 26

-----Original Message-----
From: bigfatcatproductionsllc@gmail.com
Sent: Thursday, May 26, 2016 7:55 PM

Call for actor:
Big Fat Cat Productions LLC is seeking a male actor ages 17 to 26. We need
a true red haired actor, dark or light red is okay. Straight or curly ok.
This would be for one scene for now which may have to be shot more than once
over a few months so it would be best if you either lived here or were in
Tucson often. There is no pay but food is provided. The reason it may have
to be shot more than once is that we would like to "four wall" it possibly
in LA if it is strong enough. Or it may become part of a short.

The scene is called The Sadness Jar (this is an upbeat and actually funny
scene)- and is lifted from a larger script called The Summer of Going to
God. The scene involves a worldly wise 20 something male who is also
world-weary. Both he and his female co-actor are living in a loose sort of
cult in Queens NY in the 70's. This is a purely interior scene in a room.
The young woman is about 16 (we have that actor already) and she has a ton
of sadness coming up because he is really showing her his heart and how he
feels about all sorts of things and not just towing the cult "line." She is
lost and he is not.

Auditions would be by appointment and most likely in a large rehearsal type
room in a library Central. If interested please send any headshot or phone
pic to bigfatcatproductionsllc@gmail.com with a resume and contact number.
Shooting may not occur until July or August. Some rehearsal would be
necessary. Thanks so much for considering.
