Ardea Arts
Presents Showcase Performances of
BOUNCE The Basketball Opera
June 25-27, 2016 at 6pm
Paerdegat Park in East Flatbush, Brooklyn

Ardea Arts announces BOUNCE The Basketball Opera, their latest project in development. Showcase performances will take place at Paerdegat Park in East Flatbush, Brooklyn Saturday-Monday June 25-27, 2016 at 6pm. BOUNCE is a free, non-ticketed event, open to the public. For more information, visit www.ardeaarts.com/bounce/.

BOUNCE is grounded in pressing issues facing today's audiences. Based on the Greek myth The Flight of Icarus, BOUNCE tells the story of Ike "The Flight" Harris, a high school basketball star bound for stardom. Audiences will see if "Flight" can rebound from the emotional and physical pain of gun violence, as the story plays out on local basketball courts across the country.

Pairing diverse casting with a fresh approach to arts engagement, local high school students working alongside seasoned professionals are integrated into the production using the powerful medium of basketball. They become the basketball players, the cheerleaders and Flight's classmates and teammates. Local and national community leaders also play a number of the adult roles.

Balázs Elemér Group feat Tim Ries
June 28, 7:30PM - 9:30PM
DROM


The Balázs Elemér Group, one of the most prominent jazz bands in Hungary, was founded in 2000 by Elemér Balázs; a jazz drummer of international reputation. The band with its highly qualified musicians has garnered many recognitions at home, and has built upon its domestic success through impressive performances at prestigious European jazz festivals including Vienna, London, Berlin, The Hague, Prague, Bratislava, Skopje, Rome, Oslo, Glasgow, London and Madrid.

The group has created a strikingly unique melodious sound underscored by interesting rhythmic patterns and accentuated by a fascinating texture of the tonal contrast between the male and female lead-vocals. Their music is extremely versatile, owing to their spirited blending of jazz and the folk-music of the region. It is ethno-jazz at its best, inspired by the meeting of divergent musical cultures. This complexity characterizes their albums as well, linking the otherwise diverse sounds as each of their records creates a unique atmosphere and encompasses a musical world of its own.

Tickets: $15 advance, $20 door
