KVThe origins of the Sitar with K.V. Mahabala

Recording artist K.V. Mahabala will share his musicianship, entertaining through music and dialogue.   

Mr. Mahabala’s passion for playing classical North Indian music on the Sitar led him to perform in prestigious places as Carnegie Hall, Woodrow Wilson Plaza and the Ronald Reagan Building. A resident of New York and teacher for more than 20 years, we are excited to have him here at the Center to share his talent.

AlexBloodRedemptionEDITAlexander Craddock is a Tampa-based performing artist and business owner with over a decade of experience in choreographed violence and movement direction. He has performed locally in live theater with Bay Area Renaissance Festival, METROCON, Tarpon Springs Performing Arts Center, StageWorks Theatre, and more. Local film work has included independent shorts, 48 Hour Film Project submissions, and even production/choreography work for a recent Star Wars short project. 

Alexander trained under a number of local choreographers before joining Art of Combat under the leadership of Maestro Jared Kirby, Professor John Lennox and Kyle Rowling after a performance intensive in Sydney, Australia. Alexander is currently the co-owner of METROCON and directs and choreographs a number of stage performances there including a live fire-breathing and fire-spinning show in the style of Cirque or other story-driven circus performances. A member of the Association for Historical Fencing, he has been training as a classical fencer for around ten years and studying 16th-century German longsword along with other Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA) traditions ranging from the Medieval to the Colonial periods and their application both competitively and for stage and screen since 2013. Recently, he founded Black Flag HEMA, a Tampa club dedicated to the revival of the rich variety of historically accurate European sword styles and a satellite of the HEMA Association.

 
Alexander is attending the University of Central Florida’s distance learning program towards a degree in Anthropology with a focus on Archaeology and currently lives in Tampa, FL with his wife Heidi and daughter Lily. He also happens to be surrounded by a hard working, incredibly supportive pool of cast and crew that he frequently works with as a choreographer, producer, and/or director, and is extremely thankful for it (and them).
