Choreographer/Improvisor and songwriter Patricia Nicholson will presents an evening featuring her latest creative endeavor, the Celestial Moonbeams Funk Group. Full of surprises, Ms Nicholson has started her own avantFunk group, featuring some of the top musicians on the avantJazz scene.interacting with classically trained dancers and cappoeristas. It redefines what it means to be modern. The group has already proved its worth at its premier performance as the official loser for this year's HOWL festival on the South Stage at Tompkins Square Park. The idea for this group came out of Ms. Nicholson's other recent undertaking, Rise Up Creative Music and Art. The songs, their lyrics and rhythms; and the dancers' movements express the ideas and sentiments of this new movement in the arts.
