ANOUSHKA SHANKAR

Anoushka Shankar breaks new ground as she brings together the passionate and diverse music of Spain with the vibrant, ancient forms of the Indian classical tradition. Tracing the musical commonalities of the Gypsies' journey from Rajasthan to Spain, through Iran, Iraq, and Armenia, Anoushka re-forges the musical links separated by a thousand years by immersing herself in the Spanish forms of flamenco, fandango, and bulería.

CHUNKY MOVE

Fiercely original, Chunky Move has earned an enviable reputation for producing a distinct yet unpredictable brand of technology-driven and genre-defying dance performance. The company redefines what is or what can be contemporary dance. Chunky Move’s work is both diverse in form and content. In Connected, the dynamic is flipped and digital technology is side stepped in favor of pure mechanics. Teaming up with Californian artist, Reuben Margolin, Chunky Move's director and choreographer Gideon Obarzanek, animates both the body and the machine through physical connection between the dancers and Margolin's purpose-built, kinetic sculpture. In Connected it is people - athletic and agile dancers' bodies twisting and hurtling through space, as well as people in recognizable situations. To date, they have created a repertoire for the stage, as well as site specific, new-media, and installation works.

IMPORTANT: No late seating. Please arrive on time.

LJO: TRIBUTE TO J.J. JOHNSON

The LJO will perform its homage to J.J. Johnson, one of the leading jazz musicians of the post-swing era. Regarded as one of the first trombonists to embrace bebop music, J.J. Johnson was a key player and innovator in this definitive style. Collaborating with jazz greats including Dizzy and Miles, Johnson blazed a path for himself in the bebop movement doing for the trombone what Charlie Parker did for the saxophone.

The Luckman will host an open rehearsal and two jazz workshops with the Luckman Jazz Orchestra on March 10, 2012 starting at 5pm. Participants will have the opportunity to observe a rehearsal of the Luckman Jazz Orchestra musicians, and a master class. For more information please call 323-343-6616.
