  • 03/29/12--13:18: Flamenco,Ole,Ole!
  • Location: Westminster Arts Center
    449 Franklin St, Bloomfield, NJ
    When: April 13, 2012
    Time: 8:00 pm–10:00 pm

       It’s rare to have exactly the right venue and the right artists to showcase an art form from so far away—Spanish flamenco.  But that’s exactly what’s happening Friday, April 13th, in Bloomfield, when the company, VivaFlamencoNJ, brings Flamenco Ole, Ole to the Westminster Arts Center, Bloomfield College, Bloomfield.

      Produced and directed by dancer/performer/teacher Antonia Messina, who lives and teaches in Essex County, the show highlights flamenco’s roots and rhythms and features solos by its three dynamic and distinctive female leads: renowned international artist, Sol “la Argentinita”; La Meira, well-known flamencologist, teacher and dancer; and Messina herself, a long-time flamenco devotee both in this country and abroad.

       The show is about roots—the roots of the dance, the power of the music and the individuality and creative need for each person to express themselves and find their passion.

    Tickets, $25, can be purchased on line at VivaFlamencoNJ.com (performance tab), or at the door.

    Location: Rutgers The State University of New Jersey
    175 University Ave, Newark, NJ
    When: April 28, 2012


    Rutgers Day, Rutgers University’s annual welcome to the people of New Jersey, is coming, rain or shine, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 28.   Rutgers Day will include nearly 500 events, exhibits and activities on the  flagship campus in New Brunswick and Piscataway. There will be plenty to stimulate the minds and senses of New Jerseyans of all ages, and all programs are free. Visitors will be able to flex their creative muscles; sample music and culture from around the world; and mingle with Rutgers students, scientists, poets, philosophers and other scholars.  Parking is free and buses will be available to shuttle among the College Avenue, Douglass, George H. Cook and Busch campuses.  Each campus will offer visitors a rich menu of sights and sounds.

    The College Avenue Campus, the heart of Rutgers, will celebrate the imaginative power of the arts and humanities with particular emphasis on activities for children. Puppet shows, story book readings, and arts and crafts activities will showcase educational fun. Visitors can stage a “getaway” to the ocean, outer space or an exotic locale by having their photos taken against a “green screen;” preschoolers can curl up for stories at the Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Art Museum; and student organizations will help kids make bracelets and other crafts. If you’ve asked yourself about the meaning of life or the nature of existence, you can stop by for a
    complimentary cup of coffee at the Philosophy Café, where students and faculty from what is widely recognized as one of the top philosophy departments in the
    English-speaking world will encourage your intellectual quest. There will be brawn as well as brains, and style as well as sheer fun: Visitors can cheer on Olympic weight lifters and watch competitive ballroom dancing.

    Busch Campus is for science lovers and those whose inclinations lean toward practical business. Psychology students and faculty will help visitors understand the workings of the human mind with quizzes, illusions and interactive demonstrations. The ever-popular Faraday Children’s Lecture will open the minds of young people to the excitement and romance of physics. Visitors can explore the largest university-based cell and DNA repository in the world, courtesy of the Department of Genetics. Engineering students will send a robot through an obstacle course and display their formula racing car. The Rutgers Business School has a full menu of events, from games of skill organized by the Little Investment Bankers, a student organization whose members are headed for careers in finance, to DJ Kinsanity, who will play music while visitors learn more about the Rutgers Business School. Finally, visitors can take in the Scarlet & White football game – a one-hour scrimmage that caps off the Scarlet Knights’ spring practice.

    On the Douglass Campus, visitors can search the Big Dig – the Department of Anthropology’s mock archaeological dig – to learn how an excavation works and make stone tools and arrowheads. They can register to vote at the Eagleton Institute of Politics, or create a comic strip with themselves as the superheroes. In addition, the 38th annual New Jersey Folk Festival will feature the music and culture of Bulgaria, as well as a wide variety of folk music from Celtic to Gospel.

    On the George H. Cook Campus, visitors can meet Seeing Eye puppies, create rain barrels and learn about their role in water conservation; visit baby farm animal; and watch as a sculptor creates art out of ice with a chainsaw. The Cook Campus also is the home of Ag Field Day, which has been held on the same spot, rain or shine, for more than a century.

    Rutgers Day is sponsored in part by Saint Peter’s Healthcare System, Barnes & Noble College Booksellers, and Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital.

    When: April 13, 2012
    Time: 8:00 pm

    Theresa Caputo is a typical Long Island wife and mom, except for one distinct
    difference — she communicates with the dead. It’s a gift she cannot “turn off,”
    prompting her to give spontaneous readings to her car mechanic or cashier at the
    local bagel shop. Theresa will share her story and much more in the intimate
    surroundings of NJPAC's Victoria Theater.

     

    The hit TLC show Long Island Medium premiered in September 2011 to rave reviews and a loyal following. TLC has launched a new season of Long Island Medium in prime time. The show follows Theresa's life as a  psychic medium and the unique challenges it creates for her husband of 22 years, Larry, and their two children, ages 17 and 21.

    Theresa has been a practicing medium for 10 years and is a certified medium with the Forever Family Foundation, an organization dedicated to connecting science with the afterlife. She spends her days helping individuals find closure by connecting them with their departed loved ones. For Theresa, this is not just her job — this is her life.

    Presented at NJPAC in association with Mills
    Entertainment.

    Singer/songwriter Scott Clark describes the songs as a culmination of acoustic-folk rock with a twist of funk and jazz. He offers a fresh new sound, but stands on the shoulders of giants like Tom Waits, Syd Barrett, Thelonious Monk, Jimi Hendrix, The Clash, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Elliott Smith, Belle & Sebastian, and The Kinks. Whether playing in a coffeehouse, a bar, or any social function, he seeks to be honest in his own style.

    Speaking on Shakey Ground, John Williams (guitar, vocals) says the group got its name from the old Temptations / Delbert McClinton tune.  "It feels emblematic of the times we live in - seismically, economically and for some, spiritually." Founded by veterans of the South Orange and Maplewood music scene, the group has deep roots in pop and blues music.  With Steve Gorelick (vocals), Brett Ollerenshaw (sax), Vern Miller (bass), David Goldman (drums) and Matt Raabe (keyboard), the band finds itself exploring some of the best music from the sixties, seventies and eighties.
