SERGI – EL VESTIDO

Peruvian singer and songwriter, Sergi, is premiering his latest single El Vestido under Warner Music Latina. “El Vestido” and its official music video are now available on all digital platforms.

El Vestido was co-written by VibarcoSensei and Sergi himself while it was produced by Colombian producer, Maki Vaez. Like his previous singles, “El Vestido” talks about a heartbreak as a reminder of someone who is still missing their ex-partner. Despite the changes he has had in his style, Sergi, still has the essence of the composition, using various images and very descriptive lyrics to describe love and the different situations one lives in love.

“I think the key is to compose songs that people can relate to. To be the voice of the people during their happy days, as well as in the sad ones”, commented Sergi

The music video was filmed in Lima, Peru and directed by Renzo Bernasconi, known in the audiovisual world as “El Chato Re”. In the video we see Sergi throughout different scenes thinking about that person whom he still continues to miss and continues bringing back memories to his head even when he is enjoying the party in Ibiza as mentioned in the song. The video is a comedy, but with hints of drama representing both the singer’s personality and his sense of humor.

Dolce Gabbana × Jujutsu Kaisen Anime Capsule Collection in 360 MAGAZINE

DG ANIME

DOLCE&GABBANA X JUJUTSU KAISEN

Innovation, Made in Italy and the Japanese culture meet in the new Dolce&Gabbana x Jujutsu Kaisen Special Collection, creating new synergies between art and style.

The Jujutsu Kaisen universe, which became highly popular in Japanese culture, has inspired Dolce&Gabbana in the creation of a new – yet coherent with the brand’s DNA – Special Collection. Dolce&Gabbana’s vision meets the Japanese creative universe, from the Mix&Match to the street style aesthetics of many vibrant and contemporary districts of Tokyo, among which Shibuya and Harajuku. The seemingly distant creative universes of sartorial excellence and pop culture, intertwine uniquely in this Collection, introducing a new form of beauty. Symbols and stylistic elements, that can be traced back to the identities of the various characters, are translated into garments and accessories with a strong personality.

The Collection introduces a special no gender aesthetic: cotton and jersey T-shirts and sweatshirts are combined with nylon jackets. All personalized with screen printing, digital 3D prints and ideograms, symbols of the Japanese universe. All these elements create tactile games and a three-dimensional thickness. The art of anime and the innovative spirit of the younger generations talk with the Italian manufacturing tradition.

The Collection creates new links between fashion and art, culture and lifestyle. The Dolce&Gabbana x Jujutsu Kaisen Special Collection will be available in selected boutiques in Japan starting end of April.

Twenty Eighth SLO Film Festival

The San Luis Obispo International Film Festival has announced five initial selections for the 28th edition of this year’s film festival. They include a recent hit out of Sundance, an award winner and an audience favorite from the film festival tour, an indie comedy with some familiar faces, and an international drama. As SLO Film Fest prepares to return to theaters and in-person events in April with signature and always-popular screening events like Surf Nite, and the Central Coast Filmmaker Showcase, these five films preview the variety and scope of the programming film fans can look forward to in what might be the most highly anticipated year yet for the film festival in the past three decades.

“This is a great sample size of films to tease what’s in store for our audiences this year,” said SLO Film Fest Festival Director Skye McLennan. “While we are hard at work to nail down the logistics and production details to make sure we come back in style and with all the fun and all of the great movie-loving energy that this film festival is known for, ultimately everything we do is built on the films we have selected. And we couldn’t be more thrilled with what we have got in store for everyone.” 

Mye Hoang‘s documentary Cat Daddies about men who have had their lives changed thanks to their pet cats is already a certified crowd-pleaser on the film festival tour, Justin Monroe‘s you-gotta-see-it-to-believe-it documentary Holy Frit, about artist Tim Carey and the artistic predicament he creates for himself won Best Documentary Feature at the Naples International Film Festival, and Rita Baghdadi‘s Sirens, about the growth pains of the first all-female thrash metal rock band in Lebanon, was a critical and popular hit out of this year’s Sundance Film Festival.

On the narrative side, Fabio Frey‘s My Dead Dad is a classic comic indie about a young man who inherits an apartment complex from his estranged dad and finds out from the tenants that he didn’t actually know the man. Among the film’s cast are Breaking Bad‘s Raymond Cruz, Red Rocket‘s Simon Rex, and Scarface‘s Steven Bauer. Representing the international offerings is Peter Luisi‘s Switzerland/Ukraine co-production, Princess, about the unexpected friendship that develops between a broken-down alcoholic and the young niece of his sister. Several years later, the now-grown woman is in trouble and the old man has an opportunity to repay her for her kindness when he was in need.

Passes are now on sale and information on the film festival can be found HERE

SQUID GAME EP

LET’S PLAY EP AVAILABLE TODAY

INSPIRED BY NETFLIX’S MOST-WATCHED SERIES

INCLUDES TOKiMONSTA “THE FLOWER BLOOMS”

ALSO FEATURES NEW MUSIC FROM ALOK, CHEAT CODES, AND MAYTREE

LISTEN HERE.

Casablanca Records releases Squid Game (Let’s Play) EP inspired by Squid Game, Netflix’s most-watched series – reaching over 142 million households globally. The brand-new EP features TOKiMONSTA’s new song entitled “The Flower Blooms.”  Squid Game (Let’s Play) EP also includes new music from ALOKCheat Codes, and MayTree.

Listen to Squid Game (Let’s Play) EP HERE via Casablanca Records. 

TOKiMONSTA comments on “The Flower Blooms” and Squid Game. “Like so many, I watched Squid Games and loved it. As a Korean American, seeing this type of representation paired with boundary breaking acceptance is important for Asian minorities living in Western societies.  That being said, after watching it I felt inspired to write something unique and tied to my Korean roots. In Korean, the “Red Light, Green Light” moment is based on a Korean game I grew up with—the words actually saying “The hibiscus flower is blooming/blossoming.”  I created a fun song, using my own voice to sing the lyric in Korean.”

The history making South Korean Netflix series, Squid Game, follows Gi-hun.  Laid off and divorced with high-interest loans and a gambling debt, Gi-hun is at his wit’s end when a strange man presents him a business card featuring a circle, triangle and square. The man invites Gi-hun to a survival game. The prize money? 45.6 billion won. Grasping at straws, Gi-hun accepts the offer and lands himself in a mysterious place with a total of 456 participants; among them is Sang-woo, Gi-hun’s former neighbor who initially seemed to be living the high life, Il-nam the terminally ill elder, Sae-byeok the North Korean defector, Deok-su the gangster, Mi-nyeo the con artist and Ali the migrant worker. The rule is simple: Everyone has to participate in a well-known, classic childhood game. The stakes? Their lives. Winner takes all.  Trust no one, not even yourself.  Here, winning is the only thing that matters.

Squid Game has also been confirmed to have a second season.

Squid Game (Let’s Play) EP Tracklisting:

1. Alok “Squid Game (Let’s Play)”

2. Cheat Codes “Way Back Then (Squid Game Remix)”

3. TOKiMONSTA “The Flower Blooms”

4. MayTree “Squid Game (acapella)”

PSF Returns Post-Covid

This summer Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival became one of the first professional theatres to open its doors since the coronavirus pandemic closed venues nationwide more than a year ago. The Festival celebrated its 30th Anniversary season welcoming patrons back to in-person performances indoors at the Labuda Center for the Performing Arts and outdoors at the new Air Products Open Air Theatre on the campus of DeSales University.

As one of the few active professional theatres in the nation this summer, and despite reduced seating capacity due to COVID restrictions, the Festival successfully produced seven productions and events this season. PSF reached its attendance goals welcoming nearly 10,000 audience members to 64 performances in just four weeks, in contrast to a nine and a half week season in a typical year.

With state, local, and union rules shifting repeatedly in the months leading up to the season, PSF developed multiple scenarios for the summer season, ultimately selecting the scenario that allowed for the highest-level audience experience with the most productions.

“From Shakespeare to August Wilson, from intimate solo performances to large-cast celebrations on a new stage, from indoors, to outdoors, to virtual offerings, this was a season to remember,” says Producing Artistic Director Patrick Mulcahy. “And neither the occasional rain, heat, nor hot air balloon landing adjacent to an outdoor performance could quell the enthusiasm of our patrons in their return to the theatre. Kudos to our staff, our artists, our donors and our patrons for helping us to pull this particular rabbit out of this particular hat.”

When the state announced it would expand attendance capacity for outdoor gatherings the Festival designed a new outdoor space to accommodate additional attendees. With the support of DeSales University, PSF prepared the mall adjacent to the Labuda Center and built the new Air Products Open Air Theatre on the lawn just a few weeks in advance of opening A Midsummer Night’s Dream, marking a memorable debut as PSF’s first-ever outdoor Shakespeare production.

Safety protocols kept patrons, staff and artists safe. In-person productions ran 90-minutes with no intermission and seating capacity was tailored to smaller socially distanced audiences. The Festival programmed the indoor Main Stage theatre for 22% of capacity, where ticketed patrons sat socially distanced and masked. Attendees of the Air Products Open Air Theatre venue were socially distanced but not masked.

Artists quarantined upon arrival, weekly testing began immediately, the summer staff was nearly fully vaccinated, and actors and technicians generally worked in “bubbles.” Careful observance of these protocols helped the Festival achieve a COVID-free summer of performances.

Prior to the season launch the Festival held its Luminosity Gala outdoors under a tent, the first fundraiser held in-person by a major Lehigh Valley arts nonprofit after the pandemic shutdown. Attendance was 252 and the event raised more than $120,000 to help support PSF’s educational and artistic programs. The combination of community, foundation, and government support PSF received, including pandemic rescue dollars, proved crucial to the Festival’s financial strength and continued success in fulfilling its mission.

The Festival is now completing the planning process for summer 2022, and expects to open both indoor theatres to full capacity next summer. A season announcement will be made in October. “We are eager to return to a few of the plays we didn’t get to produce in 2020, and round out the season with a diversity of enriching offerings for an unforgettable summer,” says Mulcahy.   

Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival features acclaimed actors from Broadway, television, and film, and is traditionally the summer home to more than 200 artists from around the country, including winners and nominees of the Tony, Obie, Emmy, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle, Jefferson, and Barrymore awards. 

About Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival

Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival, under the leadership of Producing Artistic Director Patrick Mulcahy, is the only professional Equity theatre of its scope and scale within a 50-mile radius. PSF is one of only a handful of theatres on the continent producing Shakespeare, musicals, classics, and contemporary plays, all of which can normally be seen in rep and in multiple spaces within a few visits in a single summer season. Similarly, PSF was among just a handful of theatres on the continent in recent summers to produce three Shakespeare plays in a single summer season.  A patron would have to travel seven to nine hours from PSF to find a comparable range of offerings at a single theatre within a few weeks’ time.

The Festival’s award-winning company of many world-class artists includes Broadway, film, and television veterans, and winners and nominees of the Tony, Emmy, Obie, Outer Critics Circle, Drama Desk, Jefferson, Hayes, Lortel, and Barrymore awards. A leading Shakespeare theatre with a national reputation for excellence, PSF has received coverage in The Washington Post, NPR, American Theatre Magazine, Playbill.com, The Philadelphia Inquirer, and in recent seasons The New York Times has identified PSF as one of the leading summer theatre festivals in the nation. “A world-class theater experience on a par with the top Bard fests,” is how one New York Drama Desk reviewer characterized PSF. 

Founded in 1992 and the Official Shakespeare Festival of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, PSF’s mission is to enrich, inspire, engage, and entertain the widest possible audience through first-rate productions of classical and contemporary plays, with a core commitment to Shakespeare and other master dramatists, and through an array of education and mentorship programs. A not-for-profit theatre, PSF receives significant support from its host, DeSales University, from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, and the National Endowment for the Arts. Traditionally, with 150 performances of seven productions, the Festival attracts patrons each summer from 30+ states. In 30 years, PSF has offered 200+ total productions (82 Shakespeare), and entertained 1,000,000+ patrons from 50 states, now averaging 34,000-40,000 in attendance each summer season, plus another 13,000 students each year through its WillPower Tour to schools. PSF is a multi-year recipient of awards from the National Endowment for the Arts: Shakespeare in American Communities, and is a constituent of Theatre Communications Group, and the Shakespeare Theatre Association (STA). In 2013, leaders of the world’s premier Shakespeare theatres gathered at PSF as the Festival hosted the international STA Conference.

Three Unlikely Peaky Blinders Fan Theories

The anticipation is continuing to grow ahead of the sixth Peaky Blinders series, as the stars of the hit BBC drama have been caught filming the show throughout the summer

However, conversations surrounding fan theories about what happens next have been rife since the dramatic ending of the previous season. Some are more unlikely than others, though. But, which scenarios look more unlikely than most when it comes to season six of Peaky Blinders?

Aberama Gold Is Alive

This is a theory that has been doing the rounds since the shocking ending to the fifth series. In that final episode, Aberama Gold was viciously killed by the Billy Boys, as Tommy Shelby’s plot to assassinate Oswald Mosley quickly fell apart.

Of course, the Blinders have a history of bringing characters back from the dead, with Arthur making his shocking return to bring down Luca Changretta. However, it is massively unlikely that Gold survived the attack on that night at the rally, despite many fans hoping for the happy ending that Aunt Polly deserves. Other fan theories have rumoured that John Shelby and Inspector Campbell could also return, but they also seem far-fetched.

Michael Gray Informed Mosley

The most pressing question that fans will have ahead of the final season is who exactly betrayed Tommy and gave Oswald the heads up that they were planning an attack. One name that has constantly been mentioned in that conversation is Michael Gray. Michael and Tommy’s relationship hit an all-time low in the fifth series, as Tommy was warned by the IRA that he wasn’t trustworthy. Michael constantly tried to seize control of the Blinders from Tommy, which led to a dramatic showdown between the two in the final episode.

Certainly, Michael wants to go higher in the gang and take control in the place of Tommy, but it looks almost impossible that he had anything to do with the plan going wrong. Most importantly, he wasn’t even in the loop when it came to the plan, which means that he wouldn’t have had the knowledge to tell Oswald what was going to happen. However, whether Tommy believes him is an entirely different question altogether.

Tommy Commits Suicide

The final scene before the credits was Tommy running into a field with the gun to his head screaming. Many fans feared that this would be the end of Tommy, as his mental health was deteriorating throughout the series, as he would constantly see Grace. However, it is massively unlikely that Tommy would have pulled the trigger, mainly through pride, as that would indicate that Oswald has come out on top in the battle between the two.

More likely, we will see Tommy come back stronger and more determined than ever to find out who the mole was. Arthur and Tommy will likely be at the front trying to find out who it was, while also taking on Oswald and the Billy Boys, and also keeping face for his political career.
