The Intergalactic Nemesis: Twin Infinity

When:
March 30, 2015 @ 7:30 pm
Where:
McCainKSU, 207 Mccain Auditorium, Manhattan, KS, 66506, United States

Straight from Austin, Texas, THE INTERGALACTIC NEMESIS is a series of shows like no other. Its format is called a Live-Action Graphic Novel. “TWIN INFINITY” is its final chapter. Three actors voice dozens of characters, a Foley artist creates all the sound effects, and a pianist plays a cinematic score, while more than 1,250 individual full-color high-resolution comic book panels tell a hilarious sci-fi adventure story visually from an enormous movie screen. And it’s all done live in front of your eyes.

Join Pulitzer Prize-Winning reporter Molly Sloan and the man of her dreams, Ben Wilcott, as they race to rescue her fiancé, also Ben Wilcott, from a secret society of spies that spans the globe — and beyond! Say what? Never mind. Trust us. This show’s funny. The year is 1942. Are you ready for the adventure?

Haven’t seen the first two installments? No worries! Twin Infinity is designed to stand alone. No previous Intergalactic experience necessary!

The Chieftains

When:
March 10, 2015 @ 7:30 pm
Where:
McCainKSU, 207 Mccain Auditorium, Manhattan, KS, 66506, United States

Six-time Grammy winners, THE CHIEFTAINS are recognized for bringing traditional Irish music to the world’s attention. They have uncovered the wealth of traditional Irish music that has accumulated over the centuries, making the music their own with a style that is as exhilarating as it is definitive.

THE CHIEFTAINS were formed in 1962 by Paddy Moloney from the ranks of the top folk musicians in Ireland. Although their early following was purely a folk audience, the range and variation of their music quickly captured a much broader public, making them the best-known Irish band in the world today.

They have performed with many symphony and folk orchestras worldwide, and have broken many musical boundaries by collaborating and performing with some of the biggest names in rock, pop and traditional music, including The Rolling Stones, Roger Waters, Alison Krauss, Bon Iver, The Decemberists and many others.
“There’s no doubt… that “the Chiefs,” as fellow musicians call them, have a firm grip on the same “world’s greatest” status in Celtic music that the Stones have in rock n’ roll.” — The Irish Letter

The Chieftains is sponsored by Holiday Inn Manhattan at the Campus.

KODO

KODO, the taiko drumming pioneers from Japan’s remote and inspiring Sado Island, demonstrate a powerful mastery over their instruments. It’s a power that can be tender or explosive, delicate or thunderous. Though steeped in tradition, KODO turns traditional Japanese music into a stunning spectacle and a vibrant expression of artistic excellence.

Since bursting onto the world scene in 1981, the group has thrilled audiences around the globe, touring for months out of the year and playing thousands of concerts. KODO has performed in nearly every important venue — from Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw to Carnegie Hall, from Disney Hall to Lincoln Center, from Paris’ Palais Garnier to the Berlin Philharmonie.

“Indeed, if there is such a thing as perfection in music, KODO comes as near to it as any group in the world.” — The Boston Globe

KODO is sponsored by Pro Fitness.
