Work 4-Red House By Jan-Ru Wan
Work 4-Red House By Jan-Ru Wan

Hanging By a Thread

A new exhibition is going up in the Lincoln Center Art Gallery this week. Taiwan-born artist Jan-Ru Wan is busy installing her colorful and unique fiber constructions that hang suspended in mid-air giving them the appearance of floating. The exhibition, ReMaterialization/ReMemory, will open on Friday evening with a reception and gallery talk on January 20, at 5:00 p.m.

Originally a fashion designer, Jan-Ru Wan began a journey toward the fine arts as a way to express deeper, more universal ideas. But Wan’s roots in fashion are still apparent as kimono shapes, button-down shirts and shirtsleeves float throughout the gallery. Using garments as a marker for culture, Wan investigates the tension between identity and culture of an individual, and the universal threads that weave each person into a wider humanity.

Adjacent to the main gallery, the Lobby Gallery will feature Expansions the colorful and ethereal paintings of Fort Collins artist Bonnie Lebesch. Lebesch paints in an intuitive and spontaneous approach, much like a moving meditation. Staying in the moment, Lebesch describes her process as painting “what moves me, the unseen edges of a felt sense.”

Admission is free! The exhibition runs through Sunday, March 3, 2012. Gallery hours are Tuesdays through Fridays, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., and Saturdays noon to 6 p.m.

Success Stems from Intense Training

TAO: The Art of The Drum isn’t just another Japanese Taiko drumming show. It’s so much more! Coming to the Lincoln Center February 22, TAO is a unique and powerful performance that brings together the sophistication of an opera, the beauty and imagery of a graceful dance, the polished performance of a Broadway musical and the power of pure physical strength.

This unprecedented and intense production combines athletic bodies and contemporary costumes with explosive Taiko drumming and innovative choreography. It's martial arts married with music and the musicians’ physical fitness, dynamism and extraordinary synchronicity make them seem almost super-human.

After years of intensive study while living and training at a compound in the mountains of Japan, the stars of TAO reach the highest level of virtuosity. The effects of their intense training, a cross between that of ancient monks and an elite military boot camp, can readily be seen on stage. TAO’s extraordinary precision, energy, and stamina is compelling.

Seen by over 3 million people in 15 countries, TAO has proven that hard work and intense training does result in success and, in this case, has massive international appeal.

A Native Four Seasons

A Fort Collins native, Nina Tso-Ning Fan began playing the violin at the age of four. Now an accomplished and active recitalist and chamber musician living in Minnesota, Fan returns home to share her grace and virtuosity as the featured soloist on Vivaldi’s Four Seasons with the Fort Collins Symphony on February 18th at 7:30 at the Lincoln Center.

While earning her bachelor’s degree in French literature from Harvard University, Fan continued her violin studies at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston. She went on to receive her master’s degree in violin performance at the Indiana University School of Music. Nina joined the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra in 1997 and in 2002 she won the $25,000 McKnight Artist Fellowship for Performing Musicians.

Fan’s extraordinary ability to combine both intensity and sensitivity into powerful yet poignant performances along with Vivaldi’s ability to evoke the sounds, moods, and even temperatures of the four seasons, promise to deliver one dynamic and unforgettable evening at the Symphony!


Staff Performance Pick of the Month
TAO - Susan Herlihy, Lincoln Center Public Realations Coordinator
As part of the programming team that selects which shows come to the Lincoln Center, I get dozens of calls each week from agents pitching shows. But when I got the call about TAO: The Art of the Drum, and an agent I really like and trust described it as STOMP and Cirque Du Soleil crossed with taiko drumming, I was really intrigued. While I was still on the phone with him, he emailed me a video. I watched 15 seconds, and I was hooked! We booked it in about 24 hours, and today it’s one of our hottest shows. And, because it was coming straight through Fort Collins, we were able to offer it for about $35 less per ticket than theaters are charging in other markets. It’s going to be a phenomenal show!
