'Danger Committee' in Dawson
DAWSON -- Dawson-Boyd Arts Association presents "The Danger Committee" at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Memorial Auditorium in Dawson.
The Minneapolis based "The Danger Committee," consists of Jason LeMay, Mick Lunzer and Caleb McEwen. They display "an incredible combination of talents" that include juggling, knife throwing and comedy.
They are well known in Minnesota as annual performers at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival and recently appeared on NBC's "America's Got Talent" competition. They were called to audition as a variety act and advanced to the New York and Las Vegas rounds. Their website, www.thedangercommittee.com, has clips of their performances and interaction with the celebrity judges. Understandably, their appearance on the show created increased national demand for their act.
Why are they called "The Danger Committee?" They juggle knives and flaming clubs. They continually add more complicated, dangerous feats to their act. For example, part of their act includes the "Wheel of Death." One of the men spins on this wooden wheel while another throws knives at various targets on the wheel.
Artist Bradley D. Hall of Granite Falls will be exhibiting in the lobby beginning at 6:45 p.m.
He is a landscape watercolor painter living and painting from his rehabbed 19th century church in Granite Falls. He also carves linoleum blocks for printing with his friend, Andy Kaman, at A to Z Letterpress in Montevideo. Their collaborative block print/letterpress calendars are filled with black and white images of the rural landscape. Hall has been an artist on the Meander Art Crawl since its beginning in 2004.
He received the majority of his training at the American Academy of Art in Chicago. He left his job as a graphic artist to pursue art full time in June of 2010.
Refreshments will also be served in the lobby during this time.
