Talent Revue 

The Charlotte Street Foundation has launched an awards program for local performing artists. Tonight's free, one-night-only to-do toasts the first three recipients of the 5K cash prizes and puts them right where they belong — on Kansas City's newest, most state-of-the-art stage. On the Kansas City Repertory Theatre's Copaken Stage in the H&R Block Building (13th Street and Walnut, 816-221-5115), each of the 2008 Charlotte Street Generative Performing Artist Fellows will pre­sent more of the ambitious work first cooked up in the West Bottoms and the Crossroads. Choreographer DeAnna Hiett joins seven other dancers for a piece set to the music of Vas and Sezen Aksu. Junkyard jazz king Mark Southerland (pictured below) and friends will offer Urban Noise Camp, a musical tribute to the moon that involves a tent city, rewarding improvisations, and his marvelous bent and sculpted saxophones. Ron Megee will also work the tent-city angle in a performance-art piece about life beneath Kansas City's bridges and under the poverty line. The 8 p.m. performance is free and open to the public.
Fri., Nov. 14, 8 p.m., 2008
