The Tara + Rhonda Show 2018 / Santa Fe
I must be fearless in improvisation, fully committed and fully present, says Las Cruces saxophonist Rhonda Taylor. Otherwise the quality of the moment is diminished. For a leap of faith like this, it helps to have a buddy. Enter Santa Fe soprano and theatre-maker Tara Khozein, who collaborates with Taylor on this evening of performance at form & concept. They will debut improvisational scores that incorporate instrumentals, vocals, and gestures.
Tara and I have a sort of Venn diagram of skill sets, Taylor says. What I love about working and performing with her is how we both are able to push and pull the other one beyond her comfort zone, in what I believe is a very beautiful and unpredictable way. The Tara + Rhonda Show 2018 is the duos second performance at form & concept, following last Decembers The Tara + Rhonda Show: Fully Clothed and Highly Introverted. The gallery will ask for a sliding scale donation of $5-$25 at the door in support of the artists. Doors open at 6:30 pm, and the performance begins at 7:00 pm.
Program: Rhonda Taylor & Tara Khozein
A note about ticket pricing, borrowed from Chicago-based composer, writer, performer Corey Smith (http://coreyds.com)
1. Art should be available. Art should be cheap. Art should be accessible. Art should be for everyone, regardless of income.
2. Art should be lucrative for the artist. Artists should be paid for their time. Artists should not struggle to cover basic living expenses.
3. Inequality is a problem that is only exacerbated by our reluctance to talk about money and class. This is a chance to start that conversation.
4. The New Prairie School is about an hour and a half long. I ask that you give us one hours worth of income. If you make minimum wage in the city of Chicago, that is $10.50. If you make a salary of $50,000/year, thats $24.00.
a. This is not a hard and fast rule.
b. For instance, a single parent with two children making $50,000/year is clearly in a different situation than someone making the same salary without kids.
c. Please evaluate your own situation. Please do not be afraid to pay $5.00. Please do not be afraid to pay $30.00.
