"Pleasure Raiders' at Theater Project
Baltimore's Impossible Industrial Action theater company will present a revised, restaged version of its multimedia piece "The Pleasure Raiders" at the Theatre Project for three weeks beginning Wednesday.
Written and directed by Kirby Malone and Tony Tsendeas, "The Pleasure Raiders" premiered as part of Towson State University's Brave New Works series last season. A blend of science fiction and social criticism, it takes place in the 21st century, when government is in the hands of multinational corporations.
"The Pleasure Raiders" will be presented at the Theatre Project, 45 W. Preston St., Wednesdays to Saturdays at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10 to $16. For more information call 752-8558. --J. Wynn Rousuck Chopin's exquisitely delicate F minor Piano Concerto will highlight the program Wednesday evening at 8:15 when the Towson State University Community Orchestra gives its fall concert in the Fine Arts Concert Hall. The soloist in the Chopin will be Reynaldo Reyes, a professor of music at TSU. Reyes studied at the Paris Conservatory with Marguerite Long, the legendary doyenne of French pianists, who made two recordings of the concerto that are prized by all collectors.
The free concert, conducted by TSU faculty member Cyrus pTC Ginwala, will also include Beethoven's "Egmont" Overture. For more information, call 830-ARTS. The signature piece of the Washington Ballet in Baltimore, choreographer Choo-San Goh's "Fives," will be one of four works performed by the company Wednesday and Thursday at 8 p.m. in Goucher College's Kraushaar Auditorium.
Featured at both performances will be the troupe's premieres of George Balanchine's "Donizetti Variations" and John Cranko's "Holberg Suite." Also on the program will be Choo-San Goh's "Momentum," performed to Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No. 1 in D flat, Opus 10, which won a choreography award at the XI International Ballet Competition in Varma, Bulgaria, in 1983. Tickets are $25, $20 and $18. Call 225-3131. --Kevin Brown
