Ryan Layden presents Tangerine
Ryan Layden brilliantly uses bold and subtle elements of film, live music, dance, and visual artistry to uniquely deliver the message and experience of love and loss to the under-served community and beyond. This production, entitled Tangerine, is a multi-conceptual show with a universal message of love far beyond the tangible. Recounting touching and heart wrenching events in Austin based singer/songwriter Ryan Layden's life, a breathtaking story is revealed on stage. His first true love, his life and songwriting partner, Danielle, departed this world in 2006.
Tangerine features 10 songs that he and Danielle wrote both independently and together, and they are performed in front of a live audience accompanied by an impressively large band and orchestra. Ryan tenderly narrates the events of the Tangerine story. He speaks about the journey to overcome grief and loss, and how music was an advocate that paved the path. Tangerine uses striking concepts and effective vehicles to reach out to every audience member who, as everyone does, has their own story and burdens of loss.
