Performance: Los Pleneros de la 21
Jul 11 @ 8:00 pm

Special Guest: El Grupo Ámbar de Delaware

Put on your dancing shoes for the infectious sounds of Puerto Rican bomba and plena! After the performance, enjoy a dance party featuring DJ Willie until 11 pm.

Los Pleneros de la 21, the premier East Harlem-based performing ensemble and non-profit community organization, was founded in 1983 by Juan J. ‘Juango’ Gutiérrez (National Endowment on the Arts’ Heritage Fellow, 1996) and the legendary Master Plenero Marcial Reyes Arvelo. Having toured extensively both nationally and internationally for over three decades, ‘LP21’ is considered by many as New York’s preeminent Bomba and Plena ambassadors to the world, bringing Puerto Rican culture to Hawaii, Canada, Mexico, Cuba, Latin America, Australia, Berlin, The Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, The Kremlin (former Soviet Union) and countless other international cities and prominent venues.

The LP21 ensemble, an exceptional mix of Puerto Rican Folk Masters and professional musicians, are all united in their common cause to expose the importance of traditional Puerto Rican music, has pioneered the road for bomba and plena performance and is responsible for expanding platforms for continued performance, learning and the presentation of Bomba and Plena—paving the way for many other musicians who now share their stage.

LP21’s latest album, Los Pleneros de la 21 Live at Pregones: 35 years of Bomba & Plena (Truth Revolution Records, Nov 2018), is an ode to the group’s long arduous yet satisfying journey – milestone indeed, of a lifetime of work, blood, sweat, tears and laughter of countless dedicated bomberos, pleneros, educators and cultural advocates, raising their spear in the name of Puerto Rican Bomba & Plena, and the makers of this tradition. The album marks a new era for LP21, with a younger generation of musicians taking leadership in re-envisioning LP21’s style and persona

LP21’s landmark community-based cultural and educational programs, such as Bomba and Plena Community Workshops for adult and kids, Bomba and Plena In the house for NYC school children, and Cultural Legacy Programs, have created a common space for the recognition, education and practice of Puerto Rican culture and identity. While in Wilmington they will be working with students from the Latin American Community Center.

Sponsored by Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation.

Performance: Fanm d’Ayiti by Nathalie Joachim with the Spektral Quartet
Jul 25 @ 8:00 pm

Fanm d’Ayiti (Women of Haiti) is an evening-length work for voice, flute, string quartet and electronics developed by composer/performer Nathalie Joachim. Commissioned by St. Paul Chamber Orchestra’s Liquid Music Series, Fanm d’Ayiti is a celebration of some of Haiti’s most iconic yet under recognized female artists, as well as an exploration of Joachim’s Haitian heritage. The project features original songs incorporating the recorded voices of Joachim’s grandmother and the girls choir of her family’s home farming village of Dantan; new arrangements of songs by some of the greatest known female voices in Haitian history; and recorded interviews with these artists about their lives fighting for social justice and uplifting the people of Haiti. Developed in a two year Liquid Music Virtual Residency, Fanm d’Ayiti premiered in March 2018 with members of SPCO in St. Paul, MN, and will be presented in the 2018-19 and 2019-20 season with Spektral Quartet.

Flutist and composer Nathalie Joachim (Eighth Blackbird, Flutronix), “an edgy multi-genre performance artist who has long been pushing boundaries with her flute” (The Washington Post)

SPEKTRAL QUARTET actively pursues a vivid conversation between exhilarating works of the traditional canon and those written this decade, this year, or this week. With the New York Times writing that “they have everything: a supreme technical command that seems to come easily, a capacity to make complicated music clear, and, most notably…an ability to cast a magic spell”, Spektral is known for creating seamless connections across centuries, drawing in the listener with charismatic deliveries, interactive concert formats, an up-close atmosphere, and bold, inquisitive programming.

ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE SERIES

The Delaware Art Museum’s performance series features bold, adventurous works from a variety of art forms. With a focus on social justice and cutting edge creative performance, this series brings artists to Delaware who are pushing creative boundaries and responding to present day events in innovative ways. Performances will take place on the Museum’s campus and out in the community.

Performance: The Light Fantastical by Makeda Thomas
Aug 16 @ 8:00 pm

Exhilarating modern dance performance that explores Caribbean culture

The Museum is thrilled to host world-renowned Trinidadian dancer and choreographer, Makeda Thomas, on August 16. During this 40-minute performance in Fusco Grand Hall, Thomas and two dancers from her company will perform a captivating modern dance titled The Light Fantastical, a contemporary exploration of Caribbean culture through dance. This improvisational piece is imbued with metaphor for art and technology that comes out of Afrofuturist culture—or more appropriately, “Caribbean Futurisms.” It considers how Caribbean cultural forms navigate time and space, and innovate new histories, sciences, and aesthetics. As part of the performance, the Museum’s Fusco Grand Hall will be transformed into a space that will pull viewers into The Light!

The Light Fantastical will be preceded by a special 20-minute performance by professional dancers from Wilmington’s own Pieces of a Dream Dance Company. A long time artistic partner with the Museum, Pieces of a Dream is dedicated to exploring contemporary societal issues through the medium of dance.

About Makeda Thomas

“The postmodern African Diasporan dancer-scholar whose work goes beyond stereotype and the market appetite for clichés regarding the black dancing body.” Trinidadian artist Makeda Thomas’ choreography, films and site-specific work has been presented internationally, including at HARLEM Stage/Aaron Davis Hall, The Brooklyn Museum of Art, New York Live Arts, Teatro Africa, the National Gallery of Zimbabwe, Queens Hall, and Teatro de la Ciudad. Thomas has received awards and commissions from Creative Capital, Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation, and 651 ARTS Black Dance: Tradition & Transformation, among others. She lives and works in Port of Spain and Brooklyn.

Schedule

7:00 pm – Museum doors open
8:00 pm – Curator tour by Margaret Winslow of works that Ms. Thomas is drawn to.
8:30 pm – Performance by Pieces of a Dream Dance Theatre of excerpts from Uprising: Rememberance|Resistance|Revival
8:50 pm – The Light Fantastical by Makeda Thomas
9:30 pm – Q & A with the artist

This project is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
