UNDERGROUND DANCE CULTURE IS ALIVE & THRIVING AT THE MELTING POT NYC. DON'T MISS OUR NEXT EVENT! SAVE THE DATE!
The Melting Pot NYC presents "Venus Rising", our official Women's Month celebration. For your pleasure and enlightenment; we have assembled a group of ladies who truly personify the power and consciousness of the modern woman. Fierce, fearless and inspiring, Poetist KAREN GIBSON ROC will bless the stage with her hybrid blend of musical poetics combining elements of rap, downtown-diva poetry slamming, and urgent backing beats that range from jazzy to soulful rock. Although not as political, she has been touted as the Gil Scott-Heron of our generation. Prepare to be moved in one way or another! We will be screening "other games..." a short film by the Allen Body Group. Choreographed by Malinda Allen and filmed in the hottest days of summer, "other games..." shows six extraordinary women bursting forth from a confined space and literally climbing the walls. A live dance performance by MAWU led by Melting Pot member Lisa Pitts will follow. Then make way for our Resident DJ KAMALA alongside DJ/Producer JENIFA MAYANJA (Bu-Mako/Stream of Consciousness) and DJ ROZE-ROYCE (Brooklyn's Burning Crew) spinning the best in soulful house and global beats to keep you stepping all night long. Come early as the show begins at 11pm. Complimentary wine and beer from 10pm-11pm. Expect eye-popping visual projections from LOVE INTELLIGENCE GROUP and an Open mic session (12:30pm-1am) to encourage all to step up and bring their flava to the mix. Stroll through the beautiful loft space and check out the International Women's Day Exhibition which is still up. Musicians, bring your instruments and dancers bring the baby powder to bless the floor. Come as you are and be part of the vibe!
We will announce the winner of the Mpot/Dubspot Competition for a free introductory DJ, VJ or Music Production class courtesy of Dubspot, the first DJ, VJ, Music Production School in NYC. If you have not already entered do so now, its easy:
