7:30 PM Lecture: The Age of Baroque The story of the Age of Baroque is a tale of today. To examine the 17th century is to reveal the 21st: two centuries united by tribalism, sectarianism, and acquiescence to unreasoning power.

We shall explore this dynamic period through the lens of its greatest artists. Art has always been the handmaiden of power, its uses and abuses magnified by this era. The power of grand monarchs of this period is clearly evident, whether through Philip IV of Spain, France's Sun King, or Louis XIV. The power of a monolithic Church confronted the existential threat of Martin Luther's Reformation. Prominent was the power of belief and ideas, and ultimately, the power of great art.

Linda Blair received her BA from Mills College and her MA from the University of San Diego. She has lectured on diverse topics in European art history for many years, primarily on the East Coast. Locally, she has lectured at The San Diego Museum of Art and UCSD Extension, as well as at the Athenaeum.

Admission/Cost: $14 - $15

8:00 PM Music: Ladysmith Black Mambazo Celebrating over fifty years of joyous and inspiring music, this group embodies the intricate rhythms and harmonies of native musical traditions. This acapella vocal group has created a musically uplifting spirit that has touched a worldwide audience over the past four decades. It has garnered praise and accolades within the recording industry and has also solidified its identity as a cultural force to be reckoned with.

Assembled in Durban, South Africa, in the early 1960s by Joseph Shabalala (then a young farmboy-turned-factory-worker), Joseph took the name "Ladysmith Black Mambazo," "Ladysmith" being the name of Shabalala's rural hometown; "Black" being a reference to oxen, the strongest of all farm animals; and "Mambazo being the Zulu word for "axe," a symbol of the group's ability to "chop down" any singing rival who might challenge them. Their collective voices are so tight, their harmonies so polished, that they had eventually been banned from competitions—although they are welcomed to participate strictly as entertainers.

Age Limit: 21+

Admission/Cost: $35 - $62

Belly Up Tavern

8:00 PM Stage: Cloud Tectonics New Village Arts stages "Cloud Tectonics," a play by José Rivera, directed by Herbert Sigüenza.

"Cloud Tectonics" is an apocalyptic love story. When Aníbal de la Luna meets pregnant Celestina del Sol at a rainy bus stop in Los Angeles, he offers her shelter for the night. As the two get to know each other, they realize that time and love don't always behave quite how they should.

This modern romantic masterpiece transcends time and space, examining how elemental forces shape who we become.

This show is the first local professional production of Rivera's masterpiece in over 20 years, and is the first mainstage production of NVA's Teatro Pueblo Nuevo initiative.

Admission/Cost: $33 - $36

Location:
New Village Arts Theatre
2787 State Street
Carlsbad, CA

Dates and times:
From January 26 to February 25
