Art & Museum Exhibits
Thru Feb 16 | 1 pm - 4 pm | Niza Knoll Gallery LLC
As our nation’s leadership shifts its environmental priorities from protection to exploitation, it is critical, now more than ever, for citizens to appreciate and explore the treasured landscapes that have inspired inhabitants of our continent for centuries. To that end, artist Topher Straus chose to use the vast National Park system, established 150 years ago, as a blueprint for his unconventional representational landscapes featured in a new exhibit at Niza Knoll Gallery entitled “The Parks”.
Straus highlights popular vistas through spectacular 30” x 60” paintings on metal with the goal of providing a personal and rich experience for the viewer, much like when visiting the parks themselves. The show runs January 11 through February 16, 2019 at 915 Santa Fe Drive with the public invited to view and purchase work at an Artist’s reception during the Third Friday Art Walk on January 18, 5-8 pm and during regular gallery Winter hours, Wednesday through Saturday 1-4 pm, First and Third Friday 4-8 pm and by appointment.

Lakewood, CO-- Following the sold-out run of Nourishment (what does it feel like to grow up?) in Denver, CO in May 2018, Gwendolyn&Guests is thrilled to announce the world premiere of their new Nourishment production, centered on the question: Why Believe? Nourishment will premiere and run on February 8-10, 2019, at MOVE! in Lakewood, Colorado. Nourishment is an evening length performance experience aimed at provoking all five senses, through the collaboration of dance, live music, theater, storytelling, new media, set design, food and drinks.
This chapter of Nourishment delves into a myriad of questions and feelings surrounding belief, religion, afterlife, spirit and soul. When does belief divide us and when does it bring us together? In today’s world as well as many other times in our history, it can seem that beliefs do more dividing than bringing together. “Why Believe?” explores what it means to believe in something, what it feels like to lose faith, and if the act of believing even matters at all.

Featuring two unrehearsed performers who have never met, Celebration, Florida by Greg Wohead is a quietly surreal show for anyone who has ever missed anyone or anything.
Veering between reality and simulation, Celebration, Florida orbits around ideas of surrogacy; a stand-in to replace a person you miss, a re-creation of an experience you can't stop thinking about, nostalgia for a place that perhaps never existed.
Greg will speak to the audience through two performers using pre-recorded audio and headphones. They will know almost nothing about the show when they walk onstage.

Auricle Recordings and Hemisphere Groove Collective present Bedrock recordings artist Stelios Vassiloudis in his first ever Denver appearance. Stelios Vassiloudis (Athens, GR- Bedrock, Poker Flat) Stelios Vassiloudis has cultivated a sound of his own, one that reflects his rich and diverse musical background, transcending the dance floor via an emotional narrative of complex soundscapes, intricate melodies and hypnotic rhythms. Greek-born and classically trained, Stelios has carved his path in electronic music by traversing the globe as a DJ and live performer, playing shows in a variety of locations and settings from intimate underground clubs in Beirut, festivals in Miami, and performances in the European dance meccas of Ibiza and London, to the frenetic party hub of Buenos Aires. Concurrently, he has built up a formidable back-catalogue of music on esteemed labels such as Bedrock, Poker Flat, Ovum, Audiomatique and Moodmusic, among others. Now, entering a new phase of his career, Stelios prepares to unveil his sophomore album, a collection of works that marks a departure from the narrow confines of the dance floor and represents the essence of what hes all about an album that merges the limitless possibilities of electronic music with his formidable training in composition and arranging, a project that is set to engage and entice audiences across a broad spectrum. The outcome of his bold endeavour is a balanced compilation of grand compositions, paired with subtle, nuanced pieces. Stelios intense passion and drive for innovation in music serves as the fuel to keep him inspired and relevant, qualities that no doubt ensure his reputation as a versatile and consistent artist of the highest calibre, will endure.

The Aurora Fox Arts Center presents a dark and timely comedy the Washington Post says produces “the kind of laughs that have a ‘wow’ underneath as the characters stride onto dangerous turf.”
“Hooded…” is an irreverent and darkly-comedic examination of two very different 14-year-old black boys growing up in America. Marquis, a book smart prep-school kid from suburban Maryland meets Tru, a street savvy Baltimorean when they find themselves sharing a jailhouse holding cell, before Marquis' uptight and very white adoptive mother comes to spring them out. Tru thinks Marquis has lost his “blackness” and pens a manual entitled “Being Black for Dummies” to help him navigate a world of cheerleaders, Black Lives Matter, 2Pac, Nietzsche, and the Gods Apollo & Dionysus – each of whom end up vying for Marquis’ future. Colorado favorite, and True West Award winner, Betty Hart, directs this exciting and timely regional premiere. Content Advisory: Adult language | Adult situations.

The longest running off-Broadway revue in history has been revised for the 21st century! This celebration of the mating game takes on the truths and myths behind that contemporary conundrum known as 'the relationship.' Act I explores the journey from dating and waiting to love and marriage, while Act II reveals the agonies and triumphs of in-laws and newborns, trips in the family car and pick-up techniques of the geriatric set. This hilarious revue pays tribute to those who have loved and lost, to those who have fallen on their face at the portal of romance, to those who have dared to ask, 'Say, what are you doing Saturday night?' The 2018 version features two new songs, revised lyrics and dialogue throughout the show to reflect dating in modern times.

Pandemic Collective, a non-profit horror theatre company in Denver, is terrified to present Another Night Of Grand Guignol!
Le Théâtre du Grand-Guignol was a Victorian theatre in Paris that specialized in showcasing the most stylized, gory and shocking horror theatre in the world. Founded in melodrama, the Grand Guignol’s plays were meant to stun and terrorize audiences; and the theatre even boasted an on-staff doctor to resuscitate victimized patrons. Our fourth presentation of Grand Guignol will showcase two timeless scripts originally performed in the 1900's, revived for a second life in Denver with a Valentine’s Day twist and underscored with live music by George Sepmeier.

It is rare to find a vocal artist who can maneuver between genres while maintaining a genuine authenticity of each and the integrity of her own voice. Spanning from classical to gospel to jazz through to rock, blues, pop, funk and soul, JoFoKe (bka Joslyn Ford-Keel) is such a vocalist who does this with ease. Fabled to have been born with microphone in-hand on a snowy Denver evening, she was raised engrossed in performing and worship artistry by her classically trained, jazz pianist father, choir director mother and all around artsy blended family. This eclectic artist grew up active in music, theater and dance but, perhaps the greatest impressions were left when she was given a chance to “sit-in” with her family and friends’ bands, vocal groups and orchestras. JoFoKe (pronounced: Joh-Foh-Kee) emerged on the professional Colorado music scene as a teen and, because of her sophisticated musical ear, attention to detail, and ability to effectively adapt her sound to most styles of music, she was quickly dubbed a “chameleon”. Having spent nearly 20 years as a session vocalist, artists consultant, clinician and in other support capacities within the music industry, JoFoKe is currently a highly sought after singer, songwriter, arranger and vocal producer.
