This event is part of the 2018 Revolutions International Theatre (and Music!) Festival, put on by our friends at Tricklock Company.
We are pleased to host ENGINE as part of our integrated series at N4th Theatre, where we bring musicians to perform for the artists with developmental disabilities at N4th and invite the community to come join the fun and see the great work they do there. Community spots are limited to 60 people and reservations are required. Once the reservations are gone, you'll be able to sign up on a waiting list. At that point, we can't guarantee that you'll get in, but we are usually able to get a bunch of people in at the door.
We are currently full for this event. We are hosting a weekly residency with ENGINE on Wednesday night's at Dialogue Brewery. Please come and join us on a Wednesday to get your ENGINE fix!
ENGINE is a powerful musical and theatrical act, based on two dancing guitars and a harmonica overlapped by the raw blending of three actor-musicians' voices. The songs are a weave of Latin American rhythms, rich harmonies and rock dynamics, interspersed by simple yet powerful theatrical eruptions. The protagonists sing ceaselessly and dance scandalously, sometimes on stage and sometimes in the audience. ENGINE, the invisible machine, provides the concert’s rhythm. People may wonder: how can just three people create such a sublime mess?
For over four years, Alejandro Tomás Rodriguez (Argentina) and Robin Gentien (France) have been traveling the world sharing various musical and theatrical performances. They have also been teaching, exposing themselves to a multiplicity of cultures and communities, and incorporating all their experiences into their art and craft. In 2016, they were joined by Pierre Lauth-Karson (France), creating the final cog in the ENGINE.
The heart of the trio's music flows from their guitars with a rock energy, a funky groove, blues, flamenco and Latin rhythms. This flow also breathes through the harmonica with unexpected brass sounds, Argentinian bandoneon colors and Texan desert imagery, as well as through the three voices calling and answering each other in Spanish, English, French and Italian. This fiercely entertaining concoction is composed of beautiful poems and ironic yet profound reflections that are alternately sensitive, relevant and timely. The audience gets carried along with the flow, having no choice but to listen, dance, clap, laugh and be touched by ENGINE.
