Christmas in a Box - Performance Art at Muse

Christmas in a Box   Friday Dec. 21st - 7 pm at Muse Winery

An evening of fun, lively entertainment, poetry, music and art being created before your eyes!  Join us at Muse Winery for this very special evening with Heather Burns, Carla Funk, Rose Cowles and special guest Joey Smith and Paul O'Brien.

The show combines music, painting and poetry, and showcases each of these artists, as well as accompanying band members.  In a spirit of spontaneity, improvisation and play, Funk, Burns and Cowles merge the rhythms and textures of their artistic genres into an event that is new with every performance.  Throughout the show, Funk weaves spoken word with the music, sometimes bringing words to the silences between songs, and other times reading poems while the musicians improvise. On one side of the stage, Cowles begins with a large blank canvas, and, inspired by the words and music performed throughout the show, fills it with lush colour and images.  
Audiences agree that each performance is an engaging mosaic of the visual, musical, and literary arts.  Its uniquely collaborative spirit creates a space where the audience feels as much a part of the show as the performers.  Entirely entertaining for all, and leaves you feeling sorry the show has ended.  
“Christmas in the Box”....was a unique experience that brought a sense of peace and joy in a season where it can be hard to find such moments. The music was fun and familiar and a relief from canned carols, the stories and poems ignited your imagination until you felt like you were sitting by a crackling fire in a classic Christmas card...and  the art was unfolding before your eyes like a present being slowly unwrapped  to your utter delight. I can't wait for next year.
