MATISYAHU

Few artists make an impact as complete as Matisyahu, the prodigious Hasidic reggae musician from New York City. With visual and musical styles that, on the surface, seem to juxtapose one another, Matisyahu blurs pre-set definitions. With wizardly skills ranging from beat-boxing to poetry, he creates his own world of musical mastery. Drawing inspiration from Rastafarian reggae, Judaic hymns, Middle Eastern rhythms, and American pop, Matisyahu conjures up an entirely fresh medley of unique and powerful beats.

LA COMPAGNIE PAVLOV | VESTIGES/VERTIGES

Vestiges/Vertiges delves into the verge of time where the remains of what is no longer have already started to take place. A territory in residue of the human touch: scraps of voices, habits, objects, images trying to recover their role. It is here that the audience finds themselves already amongst these dislocated resemblances and taking part in their reassembling. Together with the performance, they cross the threshold of forgetting and enter into the lives of those fighting against their own fading presence in time. Commissioned with the cooperation of the European Union, La Compagnie Pavlov is a multi-national, multi-disciplinary performance group based in Paris, France.

Tickets: $20

Event Partner: Alliance Française de Pasadena
