What You'll Get
Music achieves its full emotional effect only when performed live, just as great literature becomes comprehensible only when screamed aloud in a crowded subway train. Enjoy public performance with today’s deal: for $22, you get one ticket to Street Beat: A Theatrical Drum and Dance Show at Poway Center for the Performing Arts on Saturday, October 22, at 8 p.m. (up to a $45 value). Seats will be best available, and the $5 handling fee for redeeming the Groupon at the box office is included. Youth tickets are normally priced at $10.
Praised by 92064 Magazine, creator Ben Hansen and his six-member company show the many musical uses of household items and junk with Street Beat: A Theatrical Drum and Dance Show. The players transform trash cans into percussive instruments and pay a chorus of vacuum cleaners to sing “Oye Como Va,” helping them churn out a jazzy fusion of African, Cuban, and Latin beats. Hip-hop moves and breakdance acrobatics accompany the musical barrage, making for a stomping jubilee for the senses. The show also beats down the fourth wall and does the worm on it by beseeching participation from the all-ages audience, who are encouraged to protect themselves by wearing shoulder pads made out of xylophones.
