In an infamous scene in Don Quixote, the protagonist steps up to a dance crew of windmills, only to find his pop-and-lock moves outshone by their deft and dizzying spins. Catch more hypnotic beats with today's Groupon: for $55, you get a VIP evening with Quixotic Fusion and the Kansas City Symphony, including one upper-balcony ticket to Symphonic Quixotic (a $25 value), admission to a two-hour open-bar cast party (a $100 value), and a digital download of the new Quixotic Fusion EP (a $15 value). Showtime is Saturday, May 14 at 8 p.m. at the Lyric Theatre, and the after-party takes place at The Leedy-Voulkos Art Center.
With sonorously soaring aerialists, seamless integration of modern-dance choreography, and harmonious orchestration, Symphonic Quixotic embodies a sensory experience invoking the classical elements of fire, earth, wind, and water. Quixotic Fusion's bombastic performances defy classification as the gravity-defettered dancers twist and fly to the beat of modern mixes before a hypnotizing video composition like so many raver leaves grooving in gusts of trip-hop winds.
After the dazzling display of genre-melding, the musicians and dancers will retire to the Leedy-Voulkos Art Center, where an open bar stocked with Tito's Handmade Vodka and Boulevard Beer encourages friendly mingling with their freshly awed fan base. The party tunes will be supplied by Shaun Duval, Mark Lowrey, and special guests, and all VIPs will receive a digital download of Quixotic Fusion's original music, which may be transferred to CD, MP3 player, or rerecordable 8-track.
