May 30 2014 - 7:30pm

 Voice Afire’s March production, The Art of Love / Into the Labyrinth, garnered great reviews:

“…an evening of artistry, one which presented the best possible qualities of musicianship and theatrical performance…” and “…What’s better than spending an evening enjoying Italian wines and live music?”

Their next show is on Friday, May 30, 7:30 pm at the Tenri Cultural Institute, and features musical theatre for string quartet and two actors.

Ray Luedeke’s Kafka Shorts for 2 actors and string quartet uses as its text the amusing, terrifying, perplexing Parables of Franz Kafka.

Directed by Dan Swern of CoLAB Arts and co-sponsored by the American Composers Alliance, Kafka Shorts will also feature a sampling of string quartets by Kenneth Fuchs, Matthew Davidson, and John S. Gray.

Performers include actors Eric Gravez and Paula Llapur. The Voice Afire String Quartet includes top NYC violinists Artur Kaganovsky and Julianne Klopotic, violist Ann Roggen, and cellist Lawrence Zoernig.

Voice Afire's wine tasting precedes the show will feature the wines of Portugal.
