Elizabeth Yochim
Guest Occupation: Performance artist, dancer, art historian and art world professional
Guest Biography:

ELIZABETH YOCHIM

Elizabeth Yochim is a performance artist, dancer, art historian and art world professional. She has a degree in Italian Renaissance Art History from the University of Michigan and for ten years directed the international art exhibitions for a gallery based in Beverly Hills, California.

She is a movement educator and studied dance since childhood. Authentic movement and “no fourth wall theatre” is the basis of her artistic practice. She creates solo and group performative works internationally that collaborate with the environment—be it the city or the natural world.  From the Edinburgh Fringe Festival to the edge of the Vatican City in Rome, from Berlin to Paris, the Angelbird, an enchanting, mythical figure, Elizabeth has offered a unique public engagement experience that begins with a specific performance and culminates with the invitation to “remember your wings” and metaphorically take flight.

These works explore the nature of human connection and disconnection, engaging the observer as a participant in equal measure. They provoke the spectrum of internal states, creating pockets of intimacy within the public sphere, to feel the emotional ecosystem we inhabit alongside our patterned life. This ecosystem becomes its own performative space to facilitate spiritual and practical insights into the micro- and the macrocosm.

The performative works engage story, tales and myth to reflect on our own nature within the invitation to participate and contribute as a equal creator and artist. Extinction and rebirth are themes. Love stories requisite.  

THE ANGELBIRD

The Angelbird is a mythical winged creature inspiring people to remember their dreams about flight and freedom. Through mesmerizing movement and spoken word, the Angelbird engages the audience in a tale compiled from her own migration, adding bits of science and symbolism from art history, ultimately encouraging the audience to engage the imagination and take flight. And they do. 

The experience is a highly entertaining, thought provoking, and deeply touching public performance ritual. Through the symbolism of taking flight, the Angelbird marries humankind’s mortality and divinity. The experience rekindles the imagination and catalyzes the power of the collective—to dream our highest hopes and aspirations into reality. 

As a public performance ritual, The Angelbird shows up on the streets from Los Angeles to Europe, from Croatia to Poland, from Germany to Italy, namely Berlin to Rome, distributing messages from a bird cage inviting people to remember their wings and to fly. 

The Angelbird was created by Elizabeth Yochim, a dancing art historian, who costumed as an all white-winged creature, performs amongst the piazzas and gardens, around museums and cathedrals, on trains and buses and within various congregations gently invading the spaces of our universal, communal psyche and infiltrating the pulse of the human spirit through the cadence of her artfully orchestrated wings. Asking the people that she meets, Do you remember your wings? & Will you fly with me?

Marine Brian Tally
Guest Occupation: Veteran and activist for veteran rights
Guest Biography:

Brian Tally, a former SGT in the United States Marine Corps was severely injured due to the incompetence of several doctors and ER staff, at the VA hospital in Loma Linda, Ca. His misdiagnosis led to months of neglect and malpractice, that eventually nearly cost him his life. After nearly a year long battle with the VA’s General Counsel attorneys, Brian was denied compensation for his injuries, because the VA had concluded the accused physician was not a VA employee, but an “independent contractor” working within the VA. The VA also concluded that it’s not responsible, or accountable for the injuries and malpractice due to the current FTCA law / Contractor Exception.

Brian is now on a mission to change the law to protect all veterans from unidentified “independent contractors,” and to ensure that VA is transparent and fully accountable.

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW

Prog Legends Nektar Celebrate 50th Anniversary

With New Studio Album

“The Other Side”

 

The Legendary Rock Band are recording a new album! This is the first new studio album made in the United States since 1977!

We put the old band back together to CELEBRATE the 50th ANNIVERSARY of NEKTAR!

The original members of Nektar; Derek “Mo” Moore, Ron Howden, and Mick Brockett are back. We’ve added Ryche Chlanda from Fireballet and the 78′ band, Randy Dembo from the 2005 band, and newcomer and world-class keyboard player, Kendall Scott.

The music for our new album “The Other Side” comes from the 1978 era when we were writing in Mo’s basement in Chatham, New Jersey. This music was put on pause for the last 40 YEARS and it’s now time to release it with new input and fresh ideas. The music is growing exponentially as we continue rehearsing and writing and letting it take us to new heights.

Nektar has started a Kickstarter campaign to fund the recording of the new album!
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/nektarmusic/nektars-new-studio-album-the-other-side

Nektar's contribution over the last 49 years has quite rightly earned them their place in any 'Progressive Rock Hall of Fame'. But the band is much more than a 'Prog Legend', the Nektar brand of innovative composition, performance and visuals is simply unique. 

Nektar's history appeared to have been written when they finally split in the early eighties. Despite attempts to re-kindle the flame, the Nektar light, it seemed, was out . . . . until that is, the year 2000. 
The new millennium saw the long-awaited reunion tour of the classic line up, to rave reviews and fantastic receptions. The light we thought was out, had in fact been kept aglow - by loyal fans across the globe. 

Sixteen years on and the family has grown a little, but the classic Nektar spirit is still very much alive, building on the band's rediscovered popularity. The Nektar family is determined to continue bringing Nektar music to you around the world.
