Aliento: Jesús Muñoz Flamenco, Red Note

March 3March 4
Albuquerque Journal Theatre
1701 4th St SW
Albuquerque, NM 87102 United States

8 pm

Casa Flamenca and the NHCC present Jesús Muñoz Flamenco in Red Note—borrowed from the tastefully symbolic “Blue Note Jazz Club” and exploring dynamic, visionary movements in dance, music, and visual art inspired by cante flamenco. Like jazz, flamenco has its roots in raw, intimate improvisation upon standard structures; it improvises through interpretations of the structures of cante jondo, or deep song. Red Note features original music and works composed and performed by a cast of international dancers and musicians.

Jesús Muñoz is nationally and internationally recognized for having created a unique original method and rhythm fusing his American roots with traditional Spanish influence. He has been called “riveting” and a “jazz session artist,” with the live-performance direction of an orchestra conductor. The world-class ensemble, dedicated to creating a unique improvisational structure that can adapt to both traditional and contemporary methods, features original works and national and international guest artists every season. Red Note will take you on a journey through southern Spain, where soul meets dance, breathing the evolution of flamenco’s dance and music.
$20, $30, $40, $50 w/ $5 off for seniors/students * No discount for the $20 seats.

Pussy Riot

Pussy Riot-Revolution (Rental)

March 13
Albuquerque Journal Theatre
1701 4th St SW
Albuquerque, NM 87102 United States

8 pm

Pussy Riot is a Russian all-female protest art collective based in Moscow. Founded in March 2011, it had a variable membership of approximately 11 women. They gained global notoriety when five members of the group staged a performance inside Moscow’s Cathedral of Christ the Savior in 2012, which led to the extended imprisonment of three of the members.

In 2014-2016, Pussy Riot recorded and released several videos: “Putin Will Teach You To Love The Motherland,”, “I Can’t Breathe” (named for the last words that Eric Garner said as New York City Police held him to the ground in a chokehold), “Chaika,” “Organs,” and “Make America Great Again.”

This performance will be the world premiere of Pussy Riot Theatre, who will perform the story of Pussy Riot.  The performance will be followed by a discussion and Q&A.

Approximate time of event: two hours including intermission.
$17, $22, $27
