The Lucky Penny launches Work Room

[http://clatl.com/freshloaf/archives/2011/06/23/dance-truck-brings-dance-to-mint-gallery-this-weekend|
Dance Truck] has been a local favorite since it cropped up back in 2009. A simple, innovative public art program, the project literally delivers contemporary dance performances to galleries, festivals, and spots around town in the back of trucks and trailers — if people can’t go to the art, the art will come to them. Critically praised and publicly followed, the result was a resounding success.
It’s unsurprising, then, that the work of individuals as physically and creatively dynamic as co-founders Malina Rodriguez, Danny Davis, and Vii Kelly would eventually leak outside of the trucks. Which is why, in 2011, choreographer Blake Beckham and designer/production maven Malina Rodriguez initiated the Lucky Penny. An organizational umbrella for Dance Truck, the Lucky Penny acts as a production outlet for the pair’s collaborative dance works and a curatorial platform for presenting other contemporary artists.


This is all done without an independently owned studio space, mind you. Because of high hourly rates and project-to-project scheduling, the current model for choreographers’ studio space results in its inaccessibility to independent artists and volunteer-led companies (which, coincidentally, comprise the majority of our local dance community). The system encourages infrequent and fast-paced work. Starting on July 1, the Lucky Penny will present an alternative to the established method with the [http://www.theluckypenny.org/work-room/].


Located in East Point’s Wagon Works, a converted mill built in 1895, a 1,700 square-foot sun drenched studio space will soon be home to a small group of resident artists — and the realization of a long-term vision of the Lucky Penny. After installation of a new sprung dance floor this summer, the space will be home for nine artists who will have year-round, subsidized studio time: six to 12 hours a week in addition to training opportunities. The cohort of resident artists includes Beckham, Anicka Austin, Melissa Word, Corian Ellisor, Sarah Freeman, Hez Stalcup, MaryGrace Phillips with Erik Thurmond, Okwae A. Miller, and Dance Truck.


The shared workplace will facilitate rigorous, consistent creative practice in the hopes of producing original performance work. Exploration and collaboration are also strongly encouraged. The idea is to proceed with depth and attention to the craft of contemporary dance, not move as quickly as possible. The Work Room, though serious in its efforts to provide a nourishing space for working deeply, it is also affordable and reliable. As a result, it is also sustainable.

  Starting in the fall of 2015, visitors will be able to experience this rich history of puppetry in the Center for Puppetry Arts’ newly expanded museum and permanent museum exhibition, Worlds of Puppetry.  

 
  The Global Collection gallery, which will showcase the exhibition, will be comprised of over 170 puppets and artifacts from five continents. The Center hopes to impress that puppets are not an exclusively Western (or contemporary) practice. Organized by continent, the exhibition will include Japanese Bunraku puppets, Vietnamese water puppets, and Indonesian shadow puppets. Popular Twentieth-century puppeteer Bil Baird will also be represented by one of his marionette dolls.

 
  Although multicultural representation is the center of the exhibition’s mission, the collection will also include some more current crowd favorites such as the stop-motion clay animated duo, Gumby and Pokey, iconic European hand puppets Punch and Judy, and even prototypes for Julie Taymor’s Mufasa mask in the Broadway production of Disney’s The Lion King.   

 
  The newly completed museum will also feature the Jim Henson Collection gallery. Slated to open in the fall along with the rest of the museum, the collection will be the nation’s most comprehensive exhibit of Henson’s artifacts. 

 
  Now that the groundbreaking stages of development are finished, the Center is almost done with the steel frame and will begin constructing the roof and exterior walls shortly. On May 25, current museum exhibits will close for construction, although performances and workshops will continue as usual. Once reopened, the Center will also introduce an expanded museum store, a new library and archival storage space.

The Center hopes to impress that puppets are not an exclusively Western (or contemporary) practice. Organized by continent, the exhibition will include Japanese Bunraku puppets, Vietnamese water puppets, and Indonesian shadow puppets. Popular Twentieth-century puppeteer Bil Baird will also be represented by one of his marionette dolls.

 
  Although multicultural representation is the center of the exhibition’s mission, the collection will also include some more current crowd favorites such as the stop-motion clay animated duo, Gumby and Pokey, iconic European hand puppets Punch and Judy, and even prototypes for Julie Taymor’s Mufasa mask in the Broadway production of Disney’s The Lion King.   

 
  The newly completed museum will also feature the Jim Henson Collection gallery. Slated to open in the fall along with the rest of the museum, the collection will be the nation’s most comprehensive exhibit of Henson’s artifacts. 

 
  Now that the groundbreaking stages of development are finished, the Center is almost done with the steel frame and will begin constructing the roof and exterior walls shortly. On May 25, current museum exhibits will close for construction, although performances and workshops will continue as usual. Once reopened, the Center will also introduce an expanded museum store, a new library and archival storage space.

Home to history, love stories, scavenger hunts, and botanical beauty, the Oakland Cemetery is one of Atlanta’s great places. On Sat., May 2, the Historic Oakland Foundation and local creatives will harness the historic site’s past and interpret it through art. The initiative, the Arts at Oakland, will work together with ROAMtransmissions to produce The Cryptophonic Tour: an interactive installation including work by over a dozen sound, multimedia, and performance artists. The artists, using sound collected on the cemetery grounds, will provide immersive audio landscapes to tell the stories of 12 sites at Oakland — each of which was formative in the shaping of Atlanta as a musical city (think Civil War-era music teachers). There will also be graveside chats from Gary Laderman (Emory University), Pat Powers (Oakland Cemetery Tour Guide) and Kate Sweeney (author, American Afterlife). Food and refreshments will be available, as well as advanced ticketing. For a more detailed schedule of events, click here.

*Houston In the Blind


Atlanta's summer music scene has got everyone marking their calendars. Luckily for white-knuckled music lovers across Atlanta, Smith’s Olde Bar is hosting a live event to kick off the summer strong on Thursday, May 7.   
 
Houston In The Blind, the prog-psychedelic headliner formed in late 2014, will no doubt introduce its reverb-drenched guitar and arpeggiated synth leads to the crowd like an old friend. The haunting, spacey, hallucinogenic soundtrack of the group's first self-titled album has hints of Washed Out (especially in tracks like “Run With Me”) and the marked talent of both Athens and Atlanta-based musicians. With Dead Confederate’s John Watkins on keyboard, Charlie Garrett on vocals, Snowden’s Corinne Lee on bass and vocals, and drummer Darren Dodd and producer/musician Kalen Nash both hailing from Ponderosa, the band’s faculty for technique was never in question.

As for the other acts, expect to bounce everywhere from layered, indie rock to jangly quartets. Nashville-based Kate Tucker and the Sons of Sweden are a lush, indie rock experience (think somewhere between Beach House and Spoon) that’s gaining a nice fan base — her charismatic stage presence and powerful vocals don’t hurt. Earl Burrows, an energetic foursome also from Music City, has a stylistic continuity, sure. That said, every song is totally fresh, which probably has something to do with the group's reputation for engaging performances. As for the opening act, Angela Wolff, her vocals and melodies combine for an affective, memorable experience.     
  
Doors open at 7 p.m., Wolff starts at 8 p.m., Earl Burrows on at 9 p.m., Kate Tucker at 10 p.m., and Houston In The Blind at 11 p.m. Tickets are $8 in advance, $12 at the door."

*Houston In the Blind


Atlanta's summer music scene has got everyone marking their calendars. Luckily for white-knuckled music lovers across Atlanta, Smith’s Olde Bar is hosting a live event to kick off the summer strong on Thursday, May 7.   
 
Houston In The Blind, the prog-psychedelic headliner formed in late 2014, will no doubt introduce its reverb-drenched guitar and arpeggiated synth leads to the crowd like an old friend. The haunting, spacey, hallucinogenic soundtrack of the group's first self-titled album has hints of Washed Out (especially in tracks like “Run With Me”) and the marked talent of both Athens and Atlanta-based musicians. With Dead Confederate’s John Watkins on keyboard, Charlie Garrett on vocals, Snowden’s Corinne Lee on bass and vocals, and drummer Darren Dodd and producer/musician Kalen Nash both hailing from Ponderosa, the band’s faculty for technique was never in question.

As for the other acts, expect to bounce everywhere from layered, indie rock to jangly quartets. Nashville-based Kate Tucker and the Sons of Sweden are a lush, indie rock experience (think somewhere between Beach House and Spoon) that’s gaining a nice fan base — her charismatic stage presence and powerful vocals don’t hurt. Earl Burrows, an energetic foursome also from Music City, has a stylistic continuity, sure. That said, every song is totally fresh, which probably has something to do with the group's reputation for engaging performances. As for the opening act, Angela Wolff, her vocals and melodies combine for an affective, memorable experience.     
  
Doors open at 7 p.m., Wolff starts at 8 p.m., Earl Burrows on at 9 p.m., Kate Tucker at 10 p.m., and Houston In The Blind at 11 p.m. Tickets are $8 in advance, $12 at the door.             13082845 14124547        /mediaserver/atlanta/2015-18/1430158357-houstonintheblindstuff.jpg Courtesy of Houston In The Blind  /mediaserver/atlanta/2015-18/1430158854-houston_in_the_blind.jpg anneyarbroughphotography.com  /mediaserver/atlanta/2015-18/1430229378-houston_in_the_blind.jpg ANNEYARBROUGHPHOTOGRAPHY.COM Houston In the Blind          Houston In The Blind (ft. members of Snowden, Dead Confederate, and Ponderosa) brings psychedelic sounds to Smith's "

In the wake of everyone’s Record Store Day finds, A Cappella Books is inviting Atlanta to join them in celebrating a different kind of indie spirit: Independent Bookstore Day. What started as California Bookstore Day only last year has expanded to a nationwide ordeal — and while 93 booksellers from desert to redwood forest is impressive, 400 bookstores from coast to coast is even better. In celebration of the entrepreneurial spirit of local bookshops, all of Sat., May 2, will be dedicated to special programs, author visits, and exclusive items like limited edition releases and A Cappella’s first T-shirt in almost a decade.      
     The limited edition releases will include a mini-collection of essays on the world of contemporary literature by Roxane Gay, author of Bad Feminist and founder of Tiny Hardcore Press (copies of her chapbook will also be signed). Fans of Canadian poet, novelist, literary critic, and essayist Margaret Atwood will want to snatch one of the “Bad Citizen” stencils. The stencil, which is appropriate for use or as a stand-alone art piece, will feature a quote from “Spelling,” a poem by Atwood: “A word after a word after a word is power.”  

   
     Included in the Books About Books Boxed Set are special editions of Shadow of the Wing by Carlos Ruiz Zafon, 84, Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff, The Borrower by Rebecca Makkai, and The Bookman’s Tale by Charlie Lovett. All packaged up in a specially designed cardboard box, this one sounds like enough to tempt any book-lover.  

   
     A Stephen King novel would be enticing for a lot of those rabid readers — but the lucky patrons who grab a Finders Keepers Broadside before they sell out will receive a fair bit more. The colored broadside from King’s upcoming novel will also come with a love letter to readers written in the author’s own hand.    

   
     As for that T-shirt, store patrons will be interested to know that its design features an excerpt from an essay by Amanda C. Gable, Atlanta novelist and author of the store’s 25th Anniversary book, A Cozy Infinity. It's all happening 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sat., May 2. Be there or — well, just be there.
