Shaun Parker & Company is an exhilarating and bold new Australian dance company that has exploded onto the international dance scene. The company creates critically acclaimed dance productions, which are renowned for their integration of stimulating choreographic forms, arresting musical scores and theatrical invention. Led by award winning Artistic Director and Choreographer Shaun Parker, his work is described as ‘so cutting edge it actually wanders off the edge of any single-word definition…’ The company will perform 'SPILL', an outdoor, site specific, highly physical and engaging live performance featuring four agile and charismatic performers who blaze a colorful trail across swings, slides, see-saws and round-a-bouts. Using existing children’s playground equipment as the set design, SPILL has been created specifically for public spaces, aiming to take storytelling through dance and physical expression to the heart of our local communities. Created by Artistic Director/Choreographer Shaun Parker and composer Nick Wales, SPILL was originally commissioned by DanceXchange and the International Dance Festival Birmingham as part of the London Cultural Olympiad’s Dancing with the Games.

<![CDATA[SummerStage in association with LAMC Presents: Beatnuts / Ana Tijoux / Bodega Bamz / DJ Tony Touch]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2014/07/09/summerstage-beatnuts-ana-tijoux-bodega-bamz-dj-tony-touch http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2014/07/09/summerstage-beatnuts-ana-tijoux-bodega-bamz-dj-tony-touch Date: July 9, 2014

The Latin Alternative Music Conference (LAMC) – described by the NY Times as the "Sundance of Latin music" -- celebrates its 15th anniversary and yet another year of collaboration with Summerstage for an exciting series of concerts featuring both classic and cutting-edge music from across the Americas.

The legendary Beatnuts are a groundbreaking rap group that emerged from Queens, New York in the late 80s and made hip-hop history with classic collaborations with Biz Markie, Fat Joe and Method Man. The Beatnuts, which includes Ju-Ju (of Dominican descent) and Psycho Les (of Colombian descent), have paved the way for new generations of Latin artists as the only Latin members of the infamous Native Tongues collective. Known for their classic hits “No Escapin This,” “Off The Books,” and “Watch Out Now” (which was later sampled by Jennifer Lopez for her radio hit "Jenny from the Block"), The Beatnuts have earned a stellar reputation for energetic live shows that showcase their diverse talents as MCs, DJs and producers.

One of the most respected MCs in any language, Ana Tijoux is set to explode with her brand new record La Bala (the bullet), the follow up to her Grammy-nominated album, 1977. Born in France—where her parents were exiled during the military dictatorship in their native Chile—Tijoux became a household name in Chile with her first band, Makiza, as well as voicing the main character in the popular animated series Los Pulentos. After going solo, she quickly gained fame throughout Latin America with a string of hits including the smash “Eres Para Mi” with Julieta Venegas. But the world really began to take notice when she dropped 1977, an album full of classic beats and her signature flow that harkened back to the 90s and the golden age of intellectual hip-hop. International accolades soon followed, with praise from mainstream press around the globe as well as tastemakers like Thom Yorke, and the album ended up at the top of the “Best-of” lists of Amazon, Billboard, and iTunes, amongst others. Now she’s back with La Bala, a continuation in sound and spirit from this global activist and MC. Collaborations with the Oscar and Grammy winner Jorge Drexler, as well as Cuba’s hip-hop stars Los Aldeanos, are just some of the highlights of the album. In concert Tijoux now takes the stage with her full band to flesh out the intricate arrangements of the new album. Her shows are a whirlwind trip through hip-hop, jazz, and funk, spiced up with a bit of politics and her great sense of humor that has made audiences around the globe fall in love with her.

Spanish Harlem native, Nathaniel De La Rosa publicly known as Bodega Bamz aka PAPI is taking the New York hip-hop music scene by storm. By infusing his rich Latino roots with his urban lyricism, Bamz has created his own sub genre known as Latin Trap. Born of Puerto Rican and Dominican descent, his culture has always played a large role in his musical inspiration. From Hector Lavoe to Tupac, Bamz has mastered the art of incorporating Caribbean sounds and raw emotion filled lyrics. His stage name alone is symbolic of his drive and deep connection to his heritage, the name Bodega comes from the concept of "bodegas" or corner stores being pinnacle aspects to Latino communities, and Bamz is an acronym for “By Any MeanZ,” and in his case he plans to provide a variety of quality music by any means necessary. Although he is a fresh face to most listeners, Bamz has been rapping for over a decade. With the help of his younger brother, and engineer, Obed "Ohla" De La Rosa, Bamz mixtape Strictly 4 My P.A.P.I.Z (Proud and Powerful Individualz) created an instant buzz online. Bodega Bamz has exhibited a great amount of versatility, not only is he paving the way for Latinos, but he is earning his way into hip-hop history.

Tony Touch A.K.A Tony Toca, began as a B-Boy during the rap music renaissance era of the early 80’s, and has been a force to be reckoned with ever since. From his legendary mix tapes, to his skills on the 1’s and 2’s, he has become one of Hip Hop’s most recognized DJ’s and is known in the streets and industry as the real ‘Mix tape King’. This C.E.O/Artist/Producer recently dropped his 7th commercial release, and over the years has worked with everyone from Nina Sky to Snoop Dogg, and Tego Calderon to KRS One. Touch is a champion for the Latino community, as well as a global icon, having toured in over 30 countries. You can catch Tony on his weekly radio shows, for more info check www.tonytouch.com.

Capoeira is a unique Brazilian art form that has evolved over centuries into an exciting combination of martial arts, dance, music, and acrobatics. Some of capoeira’s benefits include strength, flexibility, stamina, overall fitness and confidence. Benefits of capoeira for kids include promoting social interaction and sense of belonging, building confidence, discipline and self esteem, promoting a healthy lifestyle so children become active, and healthy, and develop cultural awareness and tolerance. Wear comfortable clothing.

Capoeira was developed in Brazil, but its history extends to Africa and tribes from Angola. Slaves living on Brazilian Plantations who weren’t allowed to openly practice traditional forms of self-defense developed an ingenious method of disguising their training by combining it with dance-like movements, singing, and the rhythms of primitive instruments.

José Alberto, is a Dominican salsa singer with a career that spans the past thirty years. His voice was widely adored by salsa fans, and his exceptional whistling abilities led fans to give him the nickname “El Canario” (The Canary). As a pioneer of a new style of salsa called salsa romántica, which arose at a time when classic, big-band salsa, was losing popularity on the Latin record charts, El Canario focused mainly on the romantic, softer aspects of the music, creating a mixture of earlier salsa brava and the ballad style. El Canario received international attention as the bandleader of Típica 73 as well as for hit songs such as “Sueño Contigo” and albums including his debut, Noches Calientes and Dance With Me.
