Alpha Yaya Diallo kicks off the new Live (Streaming) at the 'Bolt concert series on Thursday, Oct. 1.

Live performance has returned to Shadbolt Centre for the Arts.

World-class artists and performers are lined up to take to the stage as part of Live (Streaming) at the ‘Bolt, a 10-week online concert series at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts that will also feature a limited live audience.

The season kicks off Oct. 1 with a free streaming event featuring Alpha Yaya Diallo, who will bring live music back to the Studio Theatre at the Shadbolt.

“Diallo is known for his dexterous acoustic and electric guitar playing, as well as his skills on a variety of percussion instruments and his supple and beautifully modulated voice. His exciting live shows and unparalleled musicianship have earned him a reputation as one of the hottest acts on the current world music scene,” a press release says.

New performers and artists will be featured every Thursday from Oct. 1 to Dec. 3, including Kasandra Flamenco, Dawn Pemberton, the Monica Lee Band, Khari Wendell McClelland, Carmanah, Petunia and the Vipers, Mazacote and more.

As an added bonus, online audiences will also be able to enjoy new contemporary dance artists every week as part of their streaming ticket for each performance. Kicking it off is Drone Dances In Deer Lake Park, which takes the audience on a 360-degree bird’s-eye view of Deer Lake as the camera intimately shares performances by dancers Kasandra La China, Jeanette Kotowich and Jennifer Aoki in natural settings throughout the park.

All performances begin at 8 p.m., with the pre-show performance starting at 7:30 p.m.

Limited seating is available in the Studio Theatre for each performance, in accordance with provincial health guidelines. Live tickets are $20, and online streaming tickets for all shows after Oct. 1 are $10.
