The Melting Pot's next gathering
takes place on Saturday, Feb. 1st (9pm-until) at 215 W. 28th St.
(bet. 7th & 8th). That evening, DJ Kervyn Mark and Ian Friday
(The Tea Party) will be spinning an eclectic mix of deep house, soul,
funk and afro beats.
We have a few artists exhibiting
their work. Shweta Bhardwaj shares images that spell . . . no
confines . . . no rules just senses and their reflection - - work
from the heart expressed through the fusion of varied media.
Jesse Curtis' images are, at once, architectural and intimate.
Her goal is to add dimension to what people are able to perceive with
their own eyes with her camera. Hassan Kinley's work is "to
educate, celebrate and heal right now". His images
reflects the Dominican Republic, RIGHT NOW, inclusive of all
the love that he found inescapable. He tells an honest story of
the moment that touches hearts and resonates in minds.
Accompanying the music and the
art are a few performances. Bodypoets is the raw voice of
spoken word slam poetry meets the highly expressive urban movement
disciplines of house and hip hop dance. They bring you social
commentary manifested in the flesh; bodypoetry. And also,
RhythMutation will be offering a blend of Tap dance, Percussion, Mask
and more exploring various grooves through their feet, hand and movement.
