allegria_syracuse_cirque_soleilCirque Du Soleil Alegria Syracuse New York

From a group of 20 street performers at its beginnings in 1984, Cirque du Soleil is now a major Quebec-based organization providing high-quality artistic entertainment. The company has more than 4,000 employees from over 40 different countries, including 1,000 artists.

Cirque du Soleil has brought wonder and delight to almost 90 million spectators in over 200 cities on five continents. In 2009, Cirque du Soleil will present 19 shows simultaneously throughout the world. The company has received such prestigious awards as the Emmy, Drama Desk, Bambi, ACE, Gémeaux, Félix, and Rose d’Or de Montreux.

Alegría is a mood, a state of mind. The themes of the show, whose name means “jubilation” in Spanish, are many. Power and the handing down of power over time, the evolution from ancient monarchies to modern democracies, old age, youth—it is against this backdrop that the characters of Alegría play out their lives. Kings’ fools, minstrels, beggars, old aristocrats and children make up its universe, along with the clowns, who alone are able to resist the passing of time and the social transformations that accompany it.

The show runs through May 16, 2009.

The basis of this show will be a unique demonstration of city arts & culture. A showing of true urbanism & creativity that lies within the youth of this concrete civilization, where street performances, music, dancing, graffiti, art & spoken word have evolved from simple basic ideas into the most complex & deep meaningful outputs of artistic expression.

John Deere- acrylic & spraypaint on canvas Marc Pitterelli- photography Ramona Persaud- photography Tina Dadabo- colored pencil & marker on paper Amber Blanding- glass Brandon Hall- mixed media David McKenney- acrylic on canvas Debra Parry Trichilo- photography Edward Colelli- photography on silk Jace Collins- mixed media Jim Reed- acrylic & spraypaint on canvas Melissa Tiffany- collage Mick Mather- digitally manipulated photography

The entertainment of the evening shall be like no other as three live DJ’s- Isis, Fresh Kid Finesse (both of Up Rock Crew) & Sik60Six will spin a variety of Drum-N-Bass, Breaks & Old School Grooves. Breakdancers from the Up Rock Crew shall tear up the floor as Live Grafitti Art is created in the backdrop of the show. Freestyle MC’s Flaca & One Love shall rock the mic & battle it out.

Art is real no matter what type of medium that it is created in. Art is in the eye of the beholder. Art is ever present. Art is never blind. Even in a black-and-white world, art shows a million colors..& this Third Thursday shall live in the memories of all that attend eternally.
