Take Root will present excerpts from BLEUE: An Evening Inspired by Nina Simone at GREEN SPACE, October 17th and 18th at 8:00pm. Tickets are available at the door or online at www.GreenSpaceStudio.org.
Drawing from a fusion of gospel, folk, jazz, blues and classical music, singer and songwriter Nina Simone wove together diverse musical styles to create her rebellious artistic voice. Her lyrical boldness and political bombast infused into her music highlighted the intersection of her personal and professional identities. Inspired by her creative legacy, “BLEUE” draws upon Simone’s soulful musical stylings, transforming her world into movement and music. Through original arrangements by Gernot Bernroider and Chanda Rule, “BLEUE” celebrates the eclectic movers of Bianca Johnson & Dancers while paying homage to the ‘High Priestess of Soul.’
