Building Bridges Not Walls

By David Johanssen

With international relations growing tense due to immigration, terrorism, and creeping American protectionism, a local French-born musician is seeking to calm the waters, bringing harmony to communities and cultures. Jean Pascal Monzies says, “My music intends to build bridges instead of walls to help us live and love each other.” Pascal is now deeply involved with a world music campaign to help launch his debut album, Oceans of the Night. Featuring songs that reflect his inner spirit and worldwide influences, the album celebrates abundance and community and reminds listeners of their shared humanity. Hear Jean Pascal Monzies: Oceans of the Night at Shelter Theater on Saturday, October 15, at 7 pm. Tickets are available at the Biblioteca and online at sheltervg4.com.

New York award-winning cabaret performer and recording artist Frans Bloem returns to Shelter with his LGBT benefit show “Kabarett Above & Beyond.” Singing in five languages across 52 countries from Paris to Shanghai, Frans is famed for his unrivaled interpretation of chansonnier Charles Aznavour, who personally authorized him to sing his classics. Cabaret Scene writes of Frans’ s performance, “…a riveting show with a passion that binds the audience to him.”

Enjoy Frans Bloem: Kabarett Above & Beyond at Shelter Theater, October 14, 21, and 22 at 7pm. Tickets are available at the Biblioteca and online at www.sheltervg4.com. The show will benefit San Miguel’s Colectivo 41, a local LGBT rights organization.

Johnny Got His Gun, Wednesday, October 19, at 5pm: This the classic 1971 anti-war film adapted from the 1930s novel by anti-McCarthy writer Dalton Trumbo. Timothy Bottoms is the shattered young WW1 veteran, Joe Bonham. Both his father, Jason Robards, and his doctor, Donald Sutherland, doubt he will ever regain consciousness. But, miraculously, he returns to life to inspire all who meet him, bringing an important message of hope and revival. Old School Reviews calls it “a strong historical and literate adaptation of a truly remarkable anti-war classic.”

Shelter is the home of San Miguel Table Tennis. Our large, indoor space features wood flooring and good light for excellent play. All levels are welcome, Thursdays at noon, 50 pesos. Come and join us for the best hand-eye exercise and general workout you can imagine—and fun!
