Thanks to the support of a Creative Support for Individuals Grant from the MN State Arts Board, I’ll be releasing six live-performance videos of my original pieces, all performed in my living room by yours truly on amplified flute, bass flute, and looping & effects pedals. The pieces come from works and shows I’ve created and performed with other artists, including choreographer Jennifer Glaws/Jagged Moves Dance Company; folk/roots trio Julie Johnson & The No-Accounts (Doug Otto & Drew Druckrey); flute/cello duo J2J (Jacqueline Ultan); dancer/film designer Tamara Ober; visual artist Patrick Kemal Pryor; and director/film designer DJ Mendel.
Join Julie for a brief welcome and introduction to the performances in Zoom. From there, you will be given a link/password to watch two virtual performances on your own device: “Opening & Suffocation” from Touch Code: https://julieflute.net/product/617518 and “Arkan”: Fantasy on a Traditional Ukrainian Melody: https://julieflute.net/product/617520.
Stay in Zoom as you watch or come back after the performances for a Q & A session with Julie.
Upon purchase, you can download a PDF that contains Zoom information for the party!

"Now is the Time" was originally created as a live performance piece integrating music, dance and film. It has been consolidated into this film work and offers a beautiful and uplifting journey through the four seasons. Images from all over the state of Minnesota offer a sense of travel through space and time. The piece also reflects the seasons of the human heart and human nature: the way we change and grow and how our feelings and reactions both reflect and are reflected in the cycles of nature.
Join Julie & Tamara for a brief welcome and introduction to the show in Zoom. From there, you will be given a link/password to watch the full show on your own device. Stay in Zoom as you watch or come back after the performance for a Q & A session with the artists.
