Single jazz tickets go on sale Monday August 29th 11:00am

Brian Culbertson is always striving to push the boundaries of the jazz scene, which is evident by his forthcoming album, Funk! due out September 2016. The new set is a throwback to the stanky P-Funk records from back in the day combining infectious bass lines, greasy horn licks, sing-a-long hooks and of course, landing hard on the ‘One.’ This record is also a follow-up to his widely successful Bringing Back The Funk album from 2008, which was co-produced by the late Maurice White of Earth, Wind & Fire. With the 16albums and counting, Brian Culbertson always brings his very best in all his broad-ranging musical endeavors and this new project is going to be reinforced by his high energy live performance.

Power Boothe: Recent Work

Sponsored by: Fred Giampietro Gallery

Power Boothe has been making large abstract paintings, based on a grid since he first exhibited work in 1971, when his paintings and drawings were included in a show of ten young artists at the Guggenheim Museum. He has had 18 one-person exhibitions in New York City, where he lived and worked for thirty years. In 2001 he moved to Connecticut where he works in his Harwinton, CT studio.

Boothe regards, “painting as a form of thought.” He says, “I cannot remember a time when I was not drawing or making paintings. When he was four or five years old he acknowledges that he would draw, to the chagrin of his parents, on any surface he could find, including walls and furniture. He can’t remember a time that he was not making marks. “Today, my work continues to evolve and develop and surprise me; I am compelled to follow where it needs to go.” Boothe says, “making drawings and paintings seems as necessary to me as drinking water.”

“My paintings employ the grid but they are not about the grid, the grid is structure that I can work with and against. My work is my way of thinking about life as a tightrope I walk between two great forces; chaos and order. To pursue either alone; to impose order and not acknowledge chaos, as either a silent emptiness or energized disorder,” he says, “would seem to deny life’s fragility and its complications.” Boothe says, “From painting to painting, I simply want to find that balance between what it means for things to come together, while at the same time, they are coming apart.”

Locally, his work is represented in in the collections of the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, the New Britain Museum of American Art, as well as the Florence Griswold Museum. In a review of his 2014 exhibition at Five Points Gallery in Torrington, the art critic Tracy O’Shaughnessy wrote:

“It is as if Boothe is saying that even in the most paradisiacal vistas, we insist on an order, even if the order falls apart. Perhaps this marriage of intuition and order is a reminder that the visceral and the analytic are forever at loggerheads, the resolution of which can be beautiful to watch.”

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction 8 Week Series

Sponsored by: Kate Mitcheom

It can help us reduce stress and with it the disabling health effects that stress can bring. Each week of this interactive course will introduce a new skill and a new concept, teaching you to relate directly to whatever is happening in your life.

Mindfulness teaches us a way of taking charge of our lives, working with our own, unique challenges and demands of everyday life. Mindfulness can help us manage pain, illness, stress and can also make us better carers for those who need our help.

Achieving a well-balanced life means being aware of all aspects of ourselves: mind, body, heart and soul. Mindfulness-based stress reduction is intended to give you the understanding of how and when to call upon this inner capacity to live life in the moment.

MBSR is not for everyone, if you have questions, please check out these resources to find out more about whether MBSR is suitable for you.

MBSR OVERVIEW

This eight week course comprises three elements: an orientation session, weekly instruction and an all-day retreat.

Orientation: This is a mandatory part of the course and is your opportunity to decide whether MBSR is right for you before you are fully committed to the program.  We require a $100 deposit to attend orientation where you will meet fellow course participants and get a taste of the type of skills you will be learning.  Following orientation, if you decide not to go ahead, your deposit will be returned less a $25 administration fee.

Mindfulness-based stress reduction is intended to give you the understanding of how and when to call upon this inner capacity to live life in the moment.

Kate’s teaching style is empowering and exciting. Guests who participate in this workshop will be taken on an empowering journey that will leave them with the one thing we all go on vacation to do: reduce stress.

This course includes floor-seated meditation and standing and lying yoga. All elements of the course can be easily, non-judgementally & discreetly adapted to be undertaken sitting in a chair for those who have mobility issues or if participants find being seated more comfortable or relaxing.


Included in the cost are all the course materials.

$100 Deposit Required to register and attend orientation
Balance of course fee: $400 due before the first full week of the course.

Full Day Retreat

This full day “mini retreat” is an opportunity to put many of the tools and skills that you have learned into practice. Our retreats are open to both MBSR participants and MBSR graduates. Our experience is that whilst some participants are hesitant about the full day, never having experienced a retreat, they leave feeling both energized and yet overwhelmingly calm. It is an important part of the course that is not to be missed.

Maintaining a Client-Centered Mindset for Better Client Retention

Sponsored by: Elm City Wellness with Rachel England

People are capable of self-healing and personal growth, which leads to self-actualization, an important concept in client-centered therapy. Self-actualization refers to the tendency of all human beings to move forward, grow, and reach their full potential. But self-actualization is hindered by negative, unhealthy attitudes about the self. In this workshop, you will learn how to navigate through these challenges so that we can continue to offer our gifts with integrity.

Oz Pearlman

Sponsored by: The John Lyman Center for the Performing Arts

Oz Pearlman is one of the busiest performing mentalists in the country. He developed an interest in magic at a young age and what started as a hobby ended up becoming a lifelong passion. After a couple of years spent working on Wall Street, Oz decided to pursue his dream and become a full time entertainer. He has now been dazzling audiences with his world-class sleight of hand and mind reading ability for over a decade.
Oz amazed the country on TV’s #1 rated show, America’s Got Talent. Week after week, he performed mindblowing mentalism routines never seen before and quickly became a fan favorite, finishing in third place out of thousands of acts. His client list reads like a who’s who of politicians, professional athletes, A-list celebrities, and Fortune 500 companies. Oz’s other television appearances have aired on both national and international networks, including a recent appearance on NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon & TODAY Show; and on the top-rated Elvis Duran radio show.
Can he truly read your mind? How does he know so much about your past…things even you have forgotten? Is this real or is it magic? You don’t want to miss witnessing Oz Pearlman, the mentalist, in action! Oz’s unique blend of magic and mentalism create an interactive experience that is redefining the very nature of a magic show…one that truly needs to be seen to be believed.

Phaedra’s Love

Sponsored by: Yale Summer Cabaret '16

A queen agonizes, bound by insatiable LUST for her stepson. A prince dreams of death, grasps for ecstasy, and feels nothing. The rotting carcass of a royal family is caught in a tangled web of sex and suffering.

Euripides, Seneca, and Racine wrote their versions of the ancient Phaedra myth as tragedies. Sarah Kane, the late great bad-girl of British theater, proffers it up as a brutal black comedy: a violent, visceral, erotic, merciless examination of love and desire. Come witness what is at once mercifully alien and uncomfortably familiar.

The Phaedra’s Love experience is not appropriate for children or sensitive audience members–the show includes adult language, nudity, simulated sex acts, graphic violence, and violence of a sexual nature.

3rd Annual Extra Innings Softball Marathon to Benefit Treasured Time

Sponsored by: Treasured Time

It’s that time of the year again! The dates are secured for this year’s Extra Innings Softball Marathon Fundraiser. Teams are already contacting us and have signed up, so call Jenn soon to reserve your spot! There has been a change to the venue, so check out the details below.

The last 2 years were such a huge success and everyone (players, spectators and sponsors) all had a blast! Well, this year will be even bigger and better in honor of our good friend, the late Ken Shepard

We are also excited to announce that this year’s event will directly benefit our most recent Treasured Time wish recipient Nicole Mather and her family. Nicole Mather, 43 of Derby, CT became sick at age 15. After a couple years of not knowing what was wrong and after various tests, she was diagnosed with Lupus at just 17 years old. Since then life has been very difficult for her. Throughout her life she has been in and out of the hospital. When she was first diagnosed with lupus she had a major car accident where she died 5 times. The priest had even given her, her last rights. Nicole defied the odds.

She found true love in her husband Brian. They were told they would never have children. However, Nicole defied the odds again and was blessed with her “miracle baby” Austin, 17 years ago.

In recent years Nicole was diagnosed with diabetes and has suffered two severe strokes and three mini strokes. She has APS lupus which means she creates blood clots all over her body, intensifying her susceptibility to strokes. At anytime Nicole could have a stroke that changes her life forever but for right now Nicole does what she can to enjoy life despite her limitations.

Nicole’s wish is to go to Vegas and renew her vows with her true love and have her son walk her down the aisle. They will be married 20 years this September.

VENUE:
Frank DeLuca Hall of Fame Stadium! 1000 Main Street, Stratford, CT. Home of the CT Brakettes and the CIAC State Tournament Softball Finals.

GAME TIMES:
The Game Times will look like this (Games begin at 7am, 8:15am, 9:30am, 10:45am, 12 noon, 1:15pm, 2:30pm, 3:45pm, 5pm and 6:15pm). Slots will be awarded on a first come, first serve basis. These will be the same for both days (Sat & Sun). We are looking to play 20 games over the 2 days for a great cause!We will be asking for your team’s skill level when you register so that we can match up the teams as fairly as possible (Beginner/Moderate/Advanced). Beginner (Teams of people that do not normally play softball), Moderate (Teams that play softball together, but that are not competitive), Advanced (teams that play softball together and are competitive). Teams can be men’s, women’s or co-ed but will not necessarily play another team of the same if we do not have teams available. So a women’s team may play a co-ed or men’s team and vice versa. Single wall bats ONLY. NO composite.

RAIN DATE:
Saturday August 27 and Sunday August 28. Same game times.

HOME RUN DERBY:
The home run derby will have a men’s and a women’s winner! Please be prepared to bring your own pitcher! No bat restrictions on the home run derby!

COST:
It is $250 for a team with a minimum of 10 players per team. Like last year, games are 1 hour long, so you get through as many innings as you can in that time period. You can also choose to do a double header again, like last year, for $500 (depending on what time slots are left when you register, they may not be able to be back to back).
We already have teams signed up, and with only 40 spots we WILL sell out quick. If you are interested please call Jenn at 203-446-1068 or email her at jenn@treasuredtime.org.

HOW TO WIN:
New this year!!! We will have the team with the most runs scored in a single game on Saturday and the team with the most runs scored in a single game on Sunday play in a Championship Game on Sunday at 7:30pm! In case of a tie on Saturday or Sunday, the team that has raised the most additional money in fundraising (forms will be provided to the team captain upon registration) will be the team playing in the championship game. Grand prize is a night for 25 people in the Treasured Time Suite at a Bridgeport Bluefish game (food/drink not included) and a Trophy for bragging rights!

SPECTATORS:
Want to come and hang out at the ballpark, watch the games, play corn hole, and have a great time? A $5 donation gains you access to the ballpark for both full days of fun and activities.

SPONSORSHIP:
We have sponsorship opportunities available - please call or email Jenn for details.

PROGRAM BOOK ADS:
We are also selling ad space in our program book, please call or email Jenn for details.

We hope to see you at the stadium this year to have fun and to support the important mission of Treasured Time! Thank you for your support! Contact Jenn at 203-446-1068 or via email jenn@treasuredtime for any further details.

Space Camp, Lady Queen Paradise, Adult Mom at Best Video

Sponsored by: Best Video Film & Cultural Center

Indie acts Space Camp, Adult Mom and Lady Queen Paradise play Best Video Performance Space on Friday, Aug. 12. The show starts at 8 PM and there is a $5 cover.

Space Camp is experimental art punk from New England, venturing into the lands of hell, queercore, and jazz all in one composed explosion. Their music can be found online at spacecampct.bandcamp.com.

Lady Queen Paradise fluctuates between slumber rock hi-fi and something loud and quiet about gender and trauma. From Connecticut, you can check out songs by Lady Queen Paradise at ladyqueenparadise.bandcamp.com.

Adult Mom is the project of S. Knipe of Connecticut.  “Knipe’s words are frank and comforting. They explore gender identity and self-expression, falling in and out of love, trying to find yourself among the insurmountable vastness that is young adulthood.” (Stereogum.com) “Momentary Lapse of Happily,” their 2015 release, is out now on Tiny Engines. Listen at adultmomband.bandcamp.com.
