RENO, Nev. (Summer 2009) – VISCERAL, an original, thought-provoking musical experience will debut during the 14th annual Artown festival on Wednesday, July 22, 2009 at John Ascuaga’s Nugget Resort Casino in a fund-raising performance for Artown and The Note-Ables.
VISCERAL is a multi-media production utilizing music, choreography and visual projections of still and live action footage depicting positive and negative aspects of the human experience. Love, war, religion, birth and death are topics presented as an experience that can be personally interpreted by each audience member.
The entire show is set to a pre-recorded soundtrack and will be enhanced by live guitar, bass, drums, vocalists, and dancers. The result is an explosive, emotionally charged journey for the audience, and will leave viewers asking themselves the questions that only they have the answers to within.
The month-long Artown summer arts festival features more than 350 events produced by more than 100 cultural organizations and businesses in locations city wide, with major funding provided by the City of Reno.
