Pairing extreme body percussion with educational outreach, Molodi is more than a performance troupe - they are a community of energetic leaders, educators, and seasoned entertainers. Molodi pushes the boundaries of stepping through its unique blend of body percussion, gumboots, beatbox, poetry, hip hop dance, immersive storytelling, and robust personalities that bring to life a high-energy experience. In addition to performing on the world stage, Molodi holds their home of Las Vegas close to heart, performing locally and teaching through their arts education program, Molodi Unplugged. Working with organizations such as Cirque du Soleil, The Smith Center, Broadway In The Hood and Project 150, Molodi serves the community and continues to enrich lives by inspiring the artist in each of us!
The Great Bingo Revival is a rhythm and funk soul explosion captivating festivals, corporate events, and private parties across North America! Reminiscent of a 1970’s game show, The Great Bingo Revival harkens back to an era of wide bottom pants, big hair, and funky dance moves. We offer old school bingo with a new school twist!
Majestic Repertory Theatre was established in 2016 as a downtown performance space where local artists could continue developing their craft in a professional setting. Majestic’s innovations in immersive and interactive performance has led to collaboration on large scale projects for the musician Usher, the producers of Sleep No More, and brands including Jack Daniels and Remy Martin. Their creative efforts received the attention of Meow Wolf, resulting in being one of only two artistic organizations in Las Vegas to receive a DIY Grant from the Santa Fe-based collective.
