ArtsBridge has two shows this week.


 Feet Don't Fail Me Now.   Home grown hoofers from Minneapolis hit the road with a trunk full of tap shoes, funky costumes and a big brass band, ready to burst onto the stage with FEET DON’T FAIL ME NOW!. “Heatbox” the human beatbox, joins the swingin’ seven-piece funk band to accompany each tap, shuffle, and stomp with a clang, riff and refrain. It’s easy to see why the this troupe was a 2012 winner of the Edinburgh Festival “Spirit of the Fringe” Award. In this joyous parade of genre-hopping music and hard-hitting percussive dance, you’ll be jumping out of your seat and dancing to the beat!


Creators of the original Singing Tesla Coils, the crew of ArcAttack uses their high tech wizardry to generate a truly ‘electrifying’ performance. Two custom engineered hand built Tesla Coils throw out electrical arcs up to twelve feet long, each one acting as an instrument with a sound reminiscent of the early days of the synthesizer. A robotic drum set accompanies the spectacle, it’s high power LED’s flashing bright colors with the stroke of each mechanically actuated stick, while ArcAttack’s six members churn out rhythmic instrumental melodies. Live instruments meet drum loops and samples to produce rock, electronica and indie with a splash of punk and a dash of metal served with a side of pop. During the show, the MC engages both the crowd and the Tesla Coils by walking through ½ Million Volt sparks wearing the relatively thin layer of his chain mail Faraday suit. This high power performance is unique in it’s elements and energy, being at the same time mesmerizing and energetically thrilling.
