About this Event

Beloved Presents Danish musician Be Svendsen at The Old Church for an all ages event on April 8, 2020. Doors open at 6:30pm, show at 7:00pm.

After his highly anticipated 2019 album, ‘Between A Smile And A Tear’ and following a successful world tour, Be Svendsen just announced dates for a new concert tour, ‘Man On The Run’.

Known for his spell-binding music and with his delicate sense of atmosphere and style, Be Svendsen will create an intimate setting for dynamic and melodic depth.

Performing this storytelling live-set on an open stage, backed by mesmerizing visuals crafted for the tour, Be Svendsen invites the audience to step closer into his universe.

The goal is to express and convey a feeling, and to behold the moment - the essence of oscillating between a smile and a tear.

His sets are transporting, providing a cinematic swagger to the listener submersed in his soundscape.

A new single titled ‘Man On The Run’ will be released March 15th and will be the first single from Be Svendsen’s next album scheduled to be released Winter 2021.

"The music should ultimately connect you to a bigger picture." – Be Svendsen

Be Svendsen produces an organic and nomadic style of techno. After starting his solo project in 2011 releasing a series of EPs and remixes, the ripples spread via live performances and a breakthrough into the international scene came in 2014.

While exploring a myriad of styles and musical traditions, Be’s live show-downs has developed into a melting pot of hypnotic desert-circus-dreamer-cowboy-techno, incorporating elements of vocals, teased field-recordings, nostalgic samples and live instruments, mixed up with the meditative qualities of repetition.

His performance takes the audience on a deep experimental journey, providing a cinematic soundscape allowing the receivers to celebrate the light and dark parts of existence.

NIEMA LIGHTSEED:

Niema Lightseed (she/her) is a poet and priestess of the new paradigm dedicated to inviting personal and collective transformation through embodiment education, language, art, and ritual.

An artist since childhood and a healing professional since 2004, she writes and performs medicinal poetry, offers therapeutic bodywork and creativity coaching, teaches about the role of somatic awareness in the liberation process, creates community ceremonies, and seeks the marrow of life through a variety of meditative and creative disciplines.

As a full-figured woman of color navigating the intersection of multiple forms of oppression while determinedly seeking the joy that is our true nature and living as art, she strives to create containers where the structures we have inherited can be transmuted and the work of seeing, accepting, and celebrating the fullness of the human experience is possible.

Niema's poetry is bold and sensual, lyrical and edgy, devotional and incisive, a ritual invitation to more deeply see one's self and a ride into the heart of the Muse.
