The human form is most graceful when dancing, unlike when riding a mechanical bull or awkwardly mistaking a handshake for a hug. Behold the apex of finesse with today's Groupon for performances at Mandeville Auditorium produced by ArtPower! at UC San Diego. Choose between the following options:
- For $20, you get two tickets the Creole Choir of Cuba on Tuesday, November 1, at 8 p.m. (a $40 value).
- For $35, you get two tickets to Vertigo Dance Company on Wednesday, October 19, at 8 p.m. (a $70 value).
The descendants of Haitian immigrants in the Creole Choir of Cuba give voice to the seldom-heard songs of their forebears as the singers perform meringues and mazurkas, with a backbone of Afro-Caribbean percussion and the pelvis of a funk-fixated jellyfish. Alternatively, the Vertigo Dance Company's artistic directors and life partners Noa Wertheim and Adi Sha'al fuse their experiences in meditative pieces, including a contemplation of love and war in a work that gave the group its name. Their latest work, Mana, continues to explore dualities, pitting light against dark, interior against exterior, and cotton against polyester.
ArtPower! imports artisans from around the world, filling downtown venues and the UC San Diego campus with live theater, dance, film, and music performances. Outside traditional venues, ArtPower! strives to engage the cultural community through special events including dinners, master classes, and lectures.
