Alvie is a warm and humorous performance that follows the story coming-of-age of a girl who spent her childhood surrounded by the contemporary circus world. All scenes were recorded over Zoom and edited as one with the show’s storyboard and stage directions. The performance also includes two featured acts by Cirque du Soleil artists.

“We’re happy to have a way to perform, and for a good cause,” said Gabriella Giocomo. “Alvie is a project close to my heart and it’s been wonderful to watch this cast bring their unique skills to flesh it out,” Giocomo added. “The entire cast is performing for free in hopes that viewers will contribute to HopeLink’s efforts to help heal the Las Vegas community.”

The cast will include – Narée Asherian (in the main role of Alvie), Marcus Weiss (a circus artist in the role of Cyril), Erik Amblad (an actor and director playing Barnaby), Thomas Hanson (acrobat of The Beatles LOVE playing Jack), Ginger Ana Griep Ruiz (aerialist of Cirque du Soleil playing Victoria), Timothy Cummings (a circus artist playing Kinney), Dina Emerson (an actress and longtime singer with Cirque du Soleil playing Deb), Casey Weems (most recently seen in FRIENDS! The Musical parody, playing Claire), Jake Staley (frequent onstage actor playing Miles), Gabriella Giocomo (author, director and performer playing Maggie), Jorge Luis (playing Fernando), Adriane McLean (playing Zeynab) and Grabeila Strahan (playing Kim).

In my opinion, this is the heart of generosity, compassion and philanthropy in its truest form.”

The YouTube link to the free performance will be posted on HopeLink’s Facebook page at 4 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 17, and will be available through Sunday, Sept. 20 at midnight.

CHRIS WINK, CO-FOUNDER OF BLUE MAN GROUP, TO LAUNCH
“WINK WORLD: PORTALS TO THE INFINITE” AT AREA15 THIS FALL

This fall, Chris Wink, co-founder of Blue Man Group, will bring “Wink World: Portals To The Infinite” to AREA15, the experiential entertainment complex opening in Las Vegas September 2020. The development marks Wink’s most ambitious art and entertainment project since departing Blue Man Group in 2017. It will draw upon Wink’s well-honed skills as an experience designer, a music composer, and overall purveyor of high-impact visual entertainment.

Wink designed the 1,500-square-foot experience to take the entertaining fusion of whimsy, color, art, technology and music he pioneered with Blue Man Group to the next level. Visitors to Wink World will walk through six infinity-mirror rooms, each one featuring a stunning production number that draws upon Wink’s love of black light and other dynamic stage effects that evoke “life force” and inspire wonder. Wink’s penchant for transforming everyday objects into art or entertainment will be on display as well, as ceiling fans become transformed into kinetic art and children’s toys like Slinkies and Hoberman Spheres become elevated into a chorus line of dancers and entertainers.

Described by Wink as “equal parts psychedelic art house and carnival funhouse,” Wink World will explore the concept of infinity in a variety of conceptual and aesthetic ways. On a technical level, it charts new territory as it attempts to solve a standard problem with infinity mirrors: they always promise a glimpse into the infinite and yet the viewer always stands in the way. Wink purposely designed rooms enabling guests to “get out of their own way,” eliminating the viewer’s reflection from the equation, thereby offering a less obstructed view of infinity.

“I’ve always been a fan of infinity illusion boxes and infinity rooms, such as those by the artist Yayoi Kusama,” says Wink. “In the last few years, I’ve become obsessed with the idea of adding motion, music, and whimsy to this already aesthetically arresting format. With Wink World, I’m aspiring to introduce visitors to a fantastical world full of vivid color, surprising changes of state, and surreal, mind-bending imagery that I hope will be more than just entertaining; I also hope it will be inspiring, and perhaps even a bit mind-expanding.”

Wink employed the talents of psychedelic artist Alex Aliume, a rising star in the art scene, to bring this first installment of Wink World to life. Aliume created a custom painting for the entrance, featuring one eye that is open, looking out at the world, and another closed one, looking within. Meanwhile, one hand is raised in reverence, while the other gives the finger out of rebellious defiance—and to introduce a dose of humor. This combination of elements illustrates the sublime, yet playful sensibility embodied in all of Wink’s work. Fans of Aliume’s popular black light paintings will be in for a visual treat when they enter the sixth and final room, which will contain 30 stunning new Aliume kinetic artworks.

Wink World’s fall 2020 opening date will be announced in the coming weeks. For more information about Wink World and to inquire about purchasing tickets, follow on Facebook and Instagram @WinkWorldOfficial.

CIRQUE DU SOLEIL OPENS ITS VAULT AND TAKES FANS ON A TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE THIS FRIDAY ON CIRQUECONNECT

CIRQUE DU SOLEIL OPENS ITS VAULT AND TAKES FANS ON A TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE THIS FRIDAY ON CIRQUECONNECT

Available online, June 12, at 12 p.m. PST /3 p.m. ET at

cirquedusoleil.com/cirqueconnect

 

Cirque du Soleil is opening up its vault of historical recordings for the first time ever, offering fans selected acts of iconic shows from its earliest days. On Friday June 12th, as part of its CirqueConnect special programming, three of the first shows to ever be performed under the Cirque du Soleil Big Top will be unveiled in a brand new 60-minute special: Cirque Réinventé, Nouvelle Expérience and Saltimbanco.

These early creations show how Cirque du Soleil has completely transformed circus acts into an internationally recognized live theatrical experience. Featuring Cirque Réinventé from 1987 Nouvelle Expérience from 1990 and Saltimbanco from 1992, viewers can witness the undeniable artistic and creative growth from the world-famous entertainment producer.

As seen throughout those conceptual productions, Cirque du Soleil has changed the entertainment world by reinventing traditional acts that became uniquely poetic where the performance is part of a more theatrical and dynamic story line.

Dedicated to Cirque du Soleil fans all over the world, this week’s brand-new 60-minute special will take viewers down memory lane for a colorful and emotional journey into its inaugural year and early beginnings.

About Cirque Réinventé

Cirque Réinventé performed for the first time to an American audience at the Los Angeles Art Festival in 1987. It was a critical milestone for Cirque du Soleil. This show was the springboard for the company’s explosion on the international scene. Cirque Réinventé then went on to continue its North American tour after a brief appearance at the Calgary Winter Olympics.

About Nouvelle Expérience

Nouvelle Expérience premiered in 1990 and was the fourth creation of Cirque du Soleil and turned out to be its most popular show to date. It continued to run until 1993. Led by the company’s co-founder, Gilles Ste-Croix, the production tried out new ideas to further heighten the show experience. This is where the curtain that separates the artists from the audience was eliminated in order for both to feel part of a larger communal experience. This is also the first production to visit Las Vegas and the first time a Cirque du Soleil residency was discussed.

About Saltimbanco

In 1992, Cirque du Soleil added a monument to its repertoire of shows with Saltimbanco. This production became the company’s longest running production by the time it closed. Performed under the Big Top from 1992 to 2006 in its original form around the world, a new adaptation of the show, staged in arenas, started touring in 2007. Saltimbanco‘s last performance took place in Montreal on December 30, 2012 after 6,000 Big Top and arena appearances, wowing 14 million spectators in 200 cities worldwide.

 

Fans are invited to tune in this Friday June 12th at 12 p.m. PST / 3p.m. ET to learn more about Cirque du Soleil and its history in a brand new way on the CirqueConnect content hub at cirquedusoleil.com/cirqueconnect.

 

The special will remain available on the CirqueConnect content hub for those who can’t watch on Friday. CirqueConnect provides at-home entertainment to fans and families worldwide.

NFL Superstar and Entertainer Terry Bradshaw Set to Release Original Song, “Quarantine Crazy”

 

NFL Superstar and Entertainer Terry Bradshaw Set to
Release Original Song, “Quarantine Crazy”

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Super Bowl champion and FOX NFL analyst, Terry Bradshaw, along with Sony Music Entertainment, will debut a new single, “Quarantine Crazy,” at midnight EST/9 p.m. PST on Thursday, April 23.

 

The football star and iconic entertainer has channeled his musical talents into the song, which will be available on iTunes, Spotify, Pandora and other outlets. Co-written by country singer Jimmy Yeary, “Quarantine Crazy” playfully chronicles the plight of the current “safer-at-home” quarantine mandates.

 

“After weeks of staying home and social distancing, I think we can all relate to feeling a bit ‘Quarantine Crazy’,” said Bradshaw. “However, it is more important than ever to remain home and stay safe. We will all get on the other side of this soon, but in the meantime, I hope this song brings a smile to your faces.”

 

A portion of the proceeds received from the sale of the song will support local food banks in Oklahoma and Texas.

 

Bradshaw, who has a long history in music and entertainment, was signed to a 31-show residency with “The Terry Bradshaw Show” at Luxor Hotel and Casino for 2020. New dates for his Las Vegas show have not yet been announced. His first foray into music, a cover of Hank William’s classic “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry,” landed him on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1976. He also hit the charts with his follow up single, “The Last Word in Lonesome is Me.” Bradshaw has released two albums in his career, toured with gospel artists, The Isaacs, and participated in FOX’s singing competition, “The Masked Singer.”

TERRY BRADSHAW
The only NFL player with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Terry Bradshaw continues to entertain fans far and beyond his legendary professional football career with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
