Powell Flutes Artist and directorial powerhouse Amelia Lukas steps into the spotlight with Natural Homeland: Honoring Ukraine, a multimedia, tour de force program of music that deepens emotional awareness around the meaning of home in light of current events. Presented by the historic Alberta Rose Theatre in partnership with Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization (IRCO)'s Slavic and Eastern European Center, and Ukrainian Care, this cohesive and moving modern concert experience weaves together stories of displacement and disaster with themes of hope and inner sanctuary. A timely, one-night-only show, Natural Homeland: Honoring Ukraine is a Top Winter Concert Pick in The Oregonian.

Lukas brings her highly acclaimed, multifaceted aesthetic to Portland, integrating “a diverse and gorgeous array of music” (Cascadia Daily News) for solo flute, piccolo, alto flute, bass flute, and electronics with beautiful, program-specific dance, visual art, lighting, videography, and poetry. Projections of “gorgeous” (Oregon ArtsWatch) artwork by local Ukrainian painter and muralist Tatyana Ostapenko will precede the concert. Ostapenko will also create a unique painting during the show, alongside Lukas’ performance of Gemma (by Ukrainian composer Ludmila Yurina), and the new artwork will be available for sale with proceeds benefiting partner organizations. Orcas Island-based choreographer and dancer Tiffany Loney joins Lukas for a gripping physical interpretation of Eve Beglarian’s I Will Not Be Sad In This World.  Additional music by Lisa Marsh, Carlos Simon, David Berstein, Nadir Vassena and Ian Clarke.

“This is a reflective, restorative and important program that draws expansive connections around ideas of shelter, belonging, and freedom, all offered through Lukas’ riveting performance… The scope of extended techniques and global palette of sounds featured in these works is stunning, and rarely heard on the concert stage.”
