Howling in the Wind

“I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked…” 

Poetry and jazz are the heart of American culture; the works themselves, and the reactions to them, reflect the conflict inherent in our evolving society. As we approach the 60th anniversary of the publication of Allen Ginsberg’s seminal poem “Howl,” the CSI Fine Arts department explores the connection between the Beat Poets and jazz. Poets such as Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac built the foundation for the Beat oeuvre in the New York club scene in the 1940s, and the movement was thrust into the nation’s consciousness when Ginsberg first publicly read “Howl” in San Francisco, October 7, 1955.  This exploration will intertwine a reading of “Howl” with jazz performances, readings of other Beat poets, and some surprise contemporary writings by CSI faculty and staff inspired by Ginsberg. Please be aware that the material contains graphic imagery and language some may interpret as vulgar; the performance is not recommended for children.

Snakes and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails

Snakes and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails is a very special multimedia performance highlighting the gray areas of masculinity that many people might not know exist.  In this production of projected imagery, song, readings, theatrical presentations, and magic, we will explore the nuances of masculinity all the way from transgender to the exaggerated stereotype of the alpha male, and in so doing understand who we all are as men and women.  This production will feature Brandon Tesch in vocal pieces from Hedwig and The Angry Inch, DeVotCha, and more, Camille Barigar performing a piece from Motherhood Out Loud, and other performers and readers from around the valley.  Brandon Tesch attended Idyllwild Academy of the Arts focusing on opera voice, traveled western Europe with the US youth choir, and has a main life goal of finding the beauty in all things.

Brian Sanders Junk

Brian Sanders' JUNK

JUNK is known for their ingenious use of found objects and clever inventions that bridge the gap between dance and physical theater. The company strives to produce work that is both artistic and accessible while maintaining a ceaseless desire to try new things. The troupe’s shows are an exhilarating feast of exciting physicality and creativity, elegantly served up with beauty and wit.  Each year JUNK creates a new site-specific performance work for the annual Fringe Festival in Philadelphia, PA. The troupe is known for presenting off-the-wall, dare-devil choreography in challenging and unusual venues. Recent sites include an underground swimming pool, an abandoned power station and a National Guard Armory. Hits from the Fringe includes an array of works showing JUNK’s accessible and thrilling style, including the Fringe hit Patio Plastico described by The Philadelphia Inquirer as “a sublimely goofy piece that at times slid into just plain sublime.”  A featured work on the program is Dancing Dead which originally took place in one of the deepest sub-basements in Philadelphia. Stage Magazine raves, "Never has there been as memorable a gravedigger theme since Shakespeare’s HAMLET; this is artistry that touches the soul." “Dancing Dead is at once breathtakingly dangerous and hauntingly beautiful.” This performance will leave a smile on the face of both the new and the experienced dance fan.

Co-LaborRinging

Co-Labor Ringing

Form is at the base of all artistic creation.  In this performance, the audience will see and hear the results of collaboration among visual and auditory form through all parts of the creative process.  Potters Bill and Sheryl West of CSI have created a series of clay objects, some functional, and some not, with both visual and auditory aesthetics in mind.  To complete the event, Composer Scott Farkas has written an evening's worth of work for these specific vessels.  Think of this as a ‘performance gallery’ that exists somewhere between the static form of visual art and the temporal form of music.  

An audience with a wide variety of interests will be delighted – it is not to be missed!
