Hamilton and American Truths10/12/20171:00-2:00UMA-Bangor, Lewiston Hall 119free!“Who lives, who dies, who tells your story?” And who determines whether your story is true? The Broadway musical, Hamilton, has taken American pop culture and American history to new levels. Combining a variety of musical styles, but relying primarily on hip hop traditions, Hamilton tells the story of Alexander Hamilton and the birth of our nation while also telling us a story about America today. Listen to the full, annotated soundtrack ahead of time and join some Hamilton nerds--Kati Corlew, Sarah Hentges, Jeff Sychterz, and Ben Treat--as they discuss the American truths that are presented through Hamilton and what this musical tells us about history, about how we tell stories, and about who we are as Americans.

Film: I Know a Man ... Ashley Bryan 10/13/20178:00 pmGracie Theatre at Husson UniversityFreeA new documentary I Know a Man ... Ashley Bryan is said by some to be an antidote to the hatred, racism and division that our country is experiencing today. The film is about this 94-year-old creative wonder who skips and jumps in his heart like a child. Born in Harlem and raised in the Bronx, Ashley’s talent was nurtured by artist Romare Bearden. Ashley was drafted out of Cooper Union into the segregated US army at age 19. He served in an all-Black battalion during World War II and preserved his humanity by drawing, stowing supplies in his gas mask. Ashley now lives on the remote Cranberry Islands, Maine, and has been using art his entire life to celebrate joy, mediate the darkness of war and racism, explore the mysteries of faith, and create loving community. He is a poet/illustrator of over 50 published children's books, and makes magical puppets and sea glass windows from found objects inspired by his African heritage. The film explores his world from the time his father “was given the mop and the broom”, (a reference to the Gordon Parks famous photograph). He quotes Marian Anderson admonishing “to keep another down you have to hold them down, and therefore cannot … soar to the potential within you.” He spreads beauty through his linocut prints exhorting “Let My People Go”. His life story and the art he makes from this wellspring of experience is an inspiration to people of all ages.

Paraween X: SYZYGY10/21/20177pm doors open at 6:30Lancaster Room, Hollywood Casino$15 advance, $20 at doorTEN YEARS OF PARAWEEN: Local Belly Dance Troupe Celebrates 10th Anniversary of Glittering, Glamorous Halloween Dance Extravaganza with PARAWEEN X: SYZYGY

The Haus of Paradigm, the Bangor area's premiere belly dance troupe, will perform SYZYGY, the tenth edition of Paraween, its yearly Halloween dance experience, on Saturday, Oct. 21 at the Lancaster Room at Hollywood Casino in Bangor.

SYZYGY will feature many of the things Paradigm fans have come to expect from Paraween over the years; extravagant costumes, fascinating music and storylines, and evocative, fully choreographed dancing by the now nine-person strong Haus of Paradigm dancers. Previous incarnations of Paraween have each featured a theme, and for SYZYGY, goddesses -- from world mythologies or created in the minds of Paradigm artistic directors Zanjibal Zen and Ao Pineda -- are the centerpiece.

As Paraween occurs one week before Halloween, attendees are encouraged to wear costumes. There will be a cash bar, and food is available from the restaurants onside at Hollywood Casino.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15 in advance, and can be purchased online at aoluxe.wix.com/paradigmdancecompany or in person at AO LUXE, Ao Pineda's henna and threading salon in the Bangor Mall. Same-day tickets are available at the door for $20.

In addition to Paraween, Haus of Paradigm offers an array of belly dance classes for beginner and intermediate students in the studio of AO LUXE in the mall. For information on upcoming classes and schedules, visit aoluxe.wixsite.com/paradigm/classes.
