Thunderbird American Indian Dancers' 38th Annual Concert - Theater for the New City
January 26, 2013 - East Village

Thunderbird American Indian Dancers will hold their 38th annual Dance Concert and Pow Wow at Theater for the New City, 155 First Avenue, from January 25 to February 3, 2013. The troupe's appearances benefit college funds for needy Native American students. The company's Pow-Wows have been presented annually as a two-week event by TNC since 1976, with the box office donated to these funds. There will be dances, stories and traditional music from the Iroquois and Native Peoples of the Northwest Coast, the Southwest, the Plains, and the Arctic regions. Between 15 and 20 dancers will assemble for the event. Highlights will include Storytelling, a Hoop Dance, a Caribou Dance (from the Inuit people of Alaska), a Buffalo Dance (from the Hopi people), a Grass Dance and Jingle Dress Dance (from the Northern Plains people), a Stomp Dance (from the Southeastern tribes), and a Shawl Dance (from the Oklahoma tribes). In the final section of the program, the audience will be invited to join in the Round Dance, a friendship dance. After matinees, the cast will remain in the theater to personally meet the children attending and be photographed with them. This component of the show was inspired by the troupe's school residencies. A Pow-Wow is more than just a spectator event: it is a joyous reunion for native peoples nationwide and an opportunity for the non-Indian community to voyage into the philosophy and beauty of Native culture. Traditionally a gathering and sharing of events, Pow-Wows have come to include spectacular dance competitions, exhibitions, and enjoyment of traditional foods. Pageantry is an important component of the event, and all participants are elaborately dressed. Most dances are performed in the traditional Circle, which represents a unity of peoples. There is a wealth of cultural information encoded in the movements of each dance. More than ten distinct tribes will be represented in the performance. Throughout the performance, all elements are explained in depth through detailed introductions by the troupe's Director and Emcee Louis Mofsie (Hopi/Winnebago). An educator, Mofsie plays an important part in the show by his ability to present a comprehensive view of native culture. Native American craft items will be displayed in the TNC lobby. The Thunderbird American Indian Dancers are the oldest resident Native American dance company in New York. The troupe was founded in 1963 by a group of ten Native American men and women, all New Yorkers, who were descended from Mohawk, Hopi, Winnebago and San Blas tribes. Some were in school at the time; all were "first generation," meaning that their parents had been born on reservations. They founded the troupe to keep alive the traditions, songs and dances they had learned from their parents, and added to their repertoire from other Native Americans living in New York and some who were passing through. Within three or four years, they were traveling throughout the continental U.S., expanding and sharing their repertoire and gleaning new dances on the reservations. (A number of Thunderbird members are winners of Fancy Dance contests held on reservations, where the standard of competition is unmistakably high.) Members of the Thunderbirds range in professions from teachers to hospital patient advocates, tree surgeons and computer engineers. The Thunderbird-TNC collaboration began in 1975, when Crystal Field directed a play called "The Only Good Indian." For research, Ms. Field lived on a Hopi reservation for three weeks. In preparation for the project, she met Louis Mofsie, and they made plans for a Pow Wow to celebrate the Winter Solstice. The event has continued annually to this day.

Bat Boy: The Musical - Westchester Sandbox Theatre
January 26, 2013 - Mamaroneck

Little Radical Theatrics, Inc. presents "Bat Boy: The Musical." Story and book by Keythe Farley and Brian Flemming, music and lyrics by Laurence O'Keefe. Directed by Michael J. Mirra. Musical direction by Mary Ann Ivan; choreographed by Theresa Burns. Based on a story ripped straight from The Weekly World News tabloid, "Bat Boy: The Musical" is a faux-horror musical comedy about a half boy/half bat creature who is rescued from a cave near Hope Falls, West Virginia, and taken in by the empathetic wife of the local veterinarian. "Edgar," as he's named, quickly learns to speak and act in civilized ways as a "normal" boy - even falling in love for the first time. Danger looms, however, when a murderous rampage sweeps Hope Falls, the town learns of a deep, dark secret, and the shocking story of Bat Boy's unholy origin is revealed. This off-kilter satire, which will reunite the director and choreographer behind the Westchester premiere of "Reefer Madness!", offers clever send-ups to other celebrated musicals, a hilarious book, surprising twists and turns of plot, and a lesson in the agony of being different and accepting your inner beast. To purchase tickets, go to brownpapertickets.com/event/298524, or call 800-838-3006 and mention "Bat Boy." Through January 26.

MAX MAVEN THINKING IN PERSON: AN EVENING OF KNOWING AND NOT KNOWING - Emelin Theatre
January 26, 2013 - Mamaroneck

"Max Maven Thinking In Person: An Evening of Knowing and Not Knowing" is not exactly a one-man show, because it involves hundreds of minds...including yours. Recently, the show had a successful off-Broadway run in New York. People magazine hailed Max Maven's work as "a new form of participatory theater." The New York Times observed that Max's "category-defying mind-reading show veers into conceptual art." The Los Angeles Times stated that Maven's "improvisational skill is enhanced by a charismatic animal magnetism." We're not sure exactly what that's supposed to mean, but apparently audiences in over three dozen countries agree. Magic magazine named Maven one of the 20th century's 100 most influential people in the field of theatrical magic, citing his ability for "entertaining and astonishing audiences with his bizarre brand of mental magic...Most of Maven�s mind-boggling feats are accomplished through psychological subterfuge that he himself has cunningly created." Variety magazine summed it up: "The combo of mental marvels and serpent-like humor marks Maven as an original." Note: program not suitable for children younger than 12.
