Angels and Demons at Play is an interdisciplinary performance featuring dance, shadow puppets, electronic visual media and live music by members of Gamelan Genta Kasturi.

Three performance dates & times:

Friday, February 25 @ 8pm
Saturday, February 26 @ 8pm
Sunday, February 27 @ 2pm

This is an original, multimedia and interdisciplinary performance event that explores the interplay of positive and negative energetic forces using the vehicle of traditional Balinese Dance Drama, Masked Dance and Shadow Puppet Theater as points of departure.

Bringing together some of the Kansas City area's most active and original artists, musicians, choreographers, and dancers, the work includes original compositions written by Pat Conway for the Gamelan Orchestra and western instruments, performed by Gamelan Genta Kasturi, Dwight Frizzell (clarinet & alto clarinet), and Shawn Hansen (piano & toy piano).  It also features shadow puppets by Allan Winkler; electronic visual media by Dwight Frizzell and Emily Kissner; lighting design by Rachel Shair; and choreography by Penelope Hearne, Kalen Compernolle, Tuesday Faust, performed by the choreographers as well as dancers Katie Brennan, Bria Blakeman, and The City in Motion Apprentice Company.

Seating is first come, first served; no reservations required.

Angels and Demons at Play is presented by Charlotte Street Foundation's Urban Culture Project, in partnership with ArtSounds (a collaboration between the UMKC Conservatory of Music and Dance and the Kansas City Art Institute).
