Overture’s Fall Preview: Urban circus, alt-country, all-male ballet. You know, the usual.
Urban circus 360 ALLSTARS features a basketball freestyler, rapping loop artist, world-champion BMX flatlander, drummer, roue cyr artist, and a break dancer, all performing eye-popping stunts you won’t quite believe.
With their Capitol Theater performance coming up on October 23, 360 ALLSTAR management let us know about a change in their lineup — and you’ll never believe who they added.
Tour veteran BBoy Simonster is sidelined with an injury, so — in keeping with their ALLSTAR title — the company has snatched Bboy Super G away from Cirque du Soleil. And get this – he holds the world record with 137 headspins in one minute.
This is a show you have to see to believe. Check out these videos, and then grab your tickets before the best ones are gone!
Fresh off the release of the Kickstarter-funded album Hand Me Down Miracles, Madison-based The Mascot Theory brings their “full-fat, high-energy dose of Americana-tinged, folk-country rock,” for a free show in Overture Hall lobby. If you prefer to look on the bright side of the dark side, come on over – you’re gonna like it here.

MadCity Sessions is sponsored by WISC-TV, and recorded and broadcast by 105.5 Triple M Radio. Additional funding provided by the Arts Access Fund, component fund of the Madison Community Foundation, and contributions to Overture Center for the Arts.
Get your photo taken in costume and grab some Halloween treats in the Rotunda Lobby. While you’re there, stop by the BioTrek Science Exploration Station to use tools from a scientist’s lab to make amazing color-changing pencils. Finally, make your way down to the Rotunda stage for some magic with a spooky twist!
Presented as part of the Downtown Madison Family Halloween.
One of the most original and innovative forces in modern dance. Former Royal Ballet dancers Michael Nunn and William Trevitt lead the company and its distinctive style, fusing spectacular dance with stunning music and film.
Whether due to sexual orientation, race, gender, gender expression, body type, class, disability, religious beliefs, or any of the myriad ways in which people are made to feel excluded, nearly everyone has experienced intolerance. Facing Intolerance, a collaboration between the McFarland School District students and teachers and photographer Jordan Richmond, aims to share the stories of— and foster solidarity between—those who have been made to feel uncomfortable or incapable because of who they are.
The opening reception for Facing Intolerance, a Playhouse Gallery photography exhibition, will take place from 3 PM to 5 PM on Sun, Nov. 2, 2014.
The Facing Intolerance Exhibition is hanging now and will close on December 7, 2014.
