Crocodile River Music Sets Off Fireworks

by Lucy Gellman | Jun 29, 2015 1:10 pm

“Can anyone tell me what this is called?” asked Issa Coulibaly, hoisting his hollow and hefty drum high enough for the audience to see it. He turned it slowly at his waist, taut ropes shifting at its sides.

A small but steady voice rose from the middle of the tent. Might it be a djembe? it wondered aloud.

Machine De Cirque Upgrades The Circus

by Lucy Gellman | Jun 26, 2015 11:44 am

Courtesy Machine de Cirque “We are going to survive no matter what happens,” crackled a Cronkitean voice to the half-dark of the University Theater, the determined squeal of a radio signal falling silent after several seconds. Cloaked behind two long, dimly lit curtains, a number of silhouettes leaned in, listening for any last, surprise utterances before the world around them quieted completely.

Ragamala Paints “Canvas Of Emotion”

by Lucy Gellman | Jun 23, 2015 10:36 am

Judy Sirota Rosenthal Photo Lit in low yellows and oranges on the spacious stage of the University Theater, Aparna Ramaswamy was extending her arms to the audience, inviting the deities — deities of her own interpretation, she would later clarify — to join her on stage. Just to her right, Ranee Ramaswamy raised her arms methodically and, as if reaching through another dimension, opened the curtains to an emotion the audience members didn’t know was sitting in them. Beside them, Rudresh Mahanthappa wailed away on his alto saxophone, a low, wolf-like cry escaping from its throat.

Dragging Herself To Brunch

by Lucy Gellman | Jun 19, 2015 1:06 pm | Comments (2)

“I love making people laugh ... in the back of all my hijinks and hilarities, you’re gong to just feel better about yourself,” said Shawn Bodey, sipping his coffee on a recent morning at Cafe Romeo. At his sandaled feet, his dog Soul searched for loose toast crumbs, settling under the table after he had found a few. Bodey pulled down his sunglasses, adjusted his plaid overshirt, and looked up at the sky, an unadulterated shade of New Haven blue with a few cloudy wisps floating past.

Rain Or Shine, The Gaslight Tinkers Tinker On

by Lucy Gellman | Jun 18, 2015 10:39 am

“We know you’re getting soggy out there,” Peter Siegel shouted from the stage, his lips curling upward as a few audience members laughed in response, raised their rainy umbrellas in salute and took one step closer to the musicians. A few knee-high Elm Citizens shook off droplets of water and called out shrilly for another song, weaving in between their parents and grandparents as they found dripping dance partners in the crowd. Others set up camp, laying out checkered picnic gear and slightly waterlogged watermelon under their umbrellas.
