Hot Club of San Francisco
presents Cinema Vivant
Thursday, Sept. 19, 2013, 7:30 p.m. in Nightingale Concert Hall at the University of Nevada, Reno
Imagine yourself in the idyllic French countryside of the 1930s, where a gypsy caravan sets up camp in a field outside of town, inviting locals out for an evening’s fun. The wanderers travel with a film projector, pointing it at the side of a barn. As the silent images flicker to life beneath the stars, gypsy musicians play their guitars and fiddles, matching every movement on the screen with passion, humor and virtuosity. Reviving this lost art of entertainment is Cinema Vivant, an evening of delightful classic silent films by pioneering filmmakers Ladislaw Starewicz and Charley Bowers, accompanied by the hottest live gypsy swing band on the planet, Hot Club of San Francisco. Viva la jazz manouche!

While the Performing Arts Series prides itself in bringing some of the finest performers in the world to the University of Nevada, Reno each season, occasionally an unforeseen occurrence calls for an artist to cancel a performance. If a cancellation requires us to schedule another performer, the series will always seek to substitute a comparable artist with similar credentials and performance standards within a related genre.

The Performing Arts Series is presented by the University of Nevada, Reno School of the Arts and Extended Studies, who wish to thank these great supporters: The Associated Students of the University of Nevada and the Graduate Student Association; the Nevada Arts Council, a state agency; National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency; Western States Arts Federation; the Fulton Fund; the Edna B. and Bruno Benna Excellence in the Fine Arts Endowment; and Sierra Arts. Accommodations for guest artists have been provided by Circus Circus Hotel and Casino.
