Press Release and Artist Bios for Immediate Release:
For the 6th installment in a series, All Together Now (ATN #6) is excited to announce a venue change to The Burren, 247 Elm St, Somerville, on Saturday, August 19 at 7pm! ATN is a multidisciplinary event series that makes space for women, people of color, and LGBT performers in partnership with allies.
Performing for ATN #6 will be Comedian and host of the 2017 Boston Calling Comedy Stage Lamont Price; Filipino-American Boston based hip hop performer, organizer, and journalist Rex Mac; and Tango music and dance with Tara and David Tresner-Kirsch and Garrett Michaelsen. More information about the artists and series can be found at alltogetherbos.com.
For the first time, ATN is expanding its series to the Burren. “Part of making sure All Together Now accessible to artists and audiences of all identities and economic statuses is taking the series where they live and work,” says Artistic Director Anna Rae, “We have a lot of respect for the different venues we’re working with – they’ve each done so much to create the context and creative vision that reflects our diverse and talent-rich city.”
With support from the Live Arts Boston Grant from The Boston Foundation, All Together Now #7 will be at the Midway in Jamaica Plain on September 30th, and All Together Now #8 will be at Inner Sanctum in Dorchester on November 4th.
Lamont Price has appeared in “Triumph the Insult Comic Dog’s Election Special” from Funny Or Die (available on Hulu), Funny Or Die’s Oddball Comedy Tour, and National Public Radio’s “Bullseye with Jesse Thorn.” A Comedy Central “Comedian to Watch,” Price has appeared with numerous national stars such as Dane Cook as well as “Opie and Anthony” regulars Rich Vos and the late Patrice O’Neal. He’s a regular at the Boston Comedy Festival, as well as the Hampton Beach (N.H.) Comedy Festival.
REX MAC is a Filipino-American Boston based musician, organizer, and journalist. Since 2012, Rex has built a discography of entirely self-produced projects on love, solitude, and self-empowerment. Offstage and outside studio, he is a contributing writer for Boston music blog Know Your Scene. Monthly, he hosts his own monthly hip hop showcase, Sonic Bloom, at Cambridge’s Out of the Blue Too Art Gallery. Currently, he is quietly at work on his second album, which will see an official commercial release in Spring 2017.
As a tango music trio, Garrett, Tara, and David explore eclectic artistic influences united by dark, immersive grooves that veer between creepy and sensual. Tara and David Tresner-Kirsch have been making music and dancing together for two decades, since their teenage years. Together with Garrett Michaelsen, they have contributed to several projects establishing a live tango music scene in the Boston area, including the Tango de los Muertos festival, the Boston Tango Jam, and Orquesta Atípica.
Darcy Hackley started dancing tango in 2009, while she was working as an archaeologist in Cairo, Egypt. She brings fifteen years of classical ballet and movement training to her dance, as well as a love of tango music. She has danced, taught, and organized tango events in Europe, the Middle East, and North America. Currently based in Providence, Rhode Island, Darcy is a tango organizer as well as a doctoral candidate in Near Eastern Archaeology.
Timothy Raben first explored Argentine tango one dreary evening in New England while suffering from the pangs of boredom. The unique mix of music, movement, and human connection sparked a new love. Pretty soon you couldn’t keep him from the dance floor: learning, practicing, and exploring tango. After many years in New England, dancing all over North and South America, Timothy relocated to Kansas where he now lives, researches particle physics , and teaches tango.
