Brilliant Pakistani-American writer Zarina is focused on finishing her novel about women and Islam when she meets Eli, a young convert who bridges the gulf between her modern life and her traditional heritage. But when her conservative father and sister discover her controversial manuscript, they are all forced to confront the beliefs that define them. From Ayad Akhtar, the Pulitzer Prize-winning writer of Disgraced, THE WHO AND THE WHAT is a thrillingly fierce and funny new play about identity, religion and the contradictions that make us who we are.

New card game Goatfish @ Meeples Games

West Seattle father and daughter team, Chad and Lillian Gray, invite you to come and play their new card game, Goatfish, at Meeples Games on Thursday, September 28, starting at 6:30 PM.

A love of playing tabletop games with friends and family evolved into a project to create their own game to share. They set out with three important goals: provide simple rules for players of all skill levels, have enough strategy to appeal to more serious gamers, and encourage people to laugh and have fun. Together, they created Goatfish, a silly, goat-themed card game that blends ideas from classic games like Go Fish and Uno with added strategy and humor.

They are launching their game on Kickstarter, September 26th, and in celebration are hosting a family game night at Meeples Games. There will be tables to play Goatfish with the creators and drawings for board-game giveaways selected from the extensive inventory at Meeples Games.

More about the game is here.

Brilliant Pakistani-American writer Zarina is focused on finishing her novel about women and Islam when she meets Eli, a young convert who bridges the gulf between her modern life and her traditional heritage. But when her conservative father and sister discover her controversial manuscript, they are all forced to confront the beliefs that define them. From Ayad Akhtar, the Pulitzer Prize-winning writer of Disgraced, THE WHO AND THE WHAT is a thrillingly fierce and funny new play about identity, religion and the contradictions that make us who we are.

Seattle Opera’s ‘The Barber Of Seville’ preview lecture @ West Seattle (Admiral) Library
Oct 1 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

The Seattle Public Library will host preview lectures and performances of Seattle Opera’s upcoming production of Gioachino Antonio Rossini’s “The Barber of Seville” at several locations throughout the city in October.

Library events and programs are free and open to the public. Registration is not required.

“Figaro, Figaro, Fi-ga-ro!” This October, get ready for whimsical disguises and good-natured trickery. “The Barber of Seville” is a giddy romp full of zany schemes worthy of a Bugs Bunny cartoon. Romance sparks between savvy Rosina and lovesick Count Almaviva, but she’s under the thumb of a ghastly guardian we love to hate. Enter fast-talking Figaro, who’s always ready to help young love carry the day.

Inspired by the chaotic and colorful film worlds of Wes Anderson and Pedro Almodóvar, this “riotously funny” (The Australian) new-to-Seattle production dazzles with vibrant sets and costumes in a comic, colorful celebration packed with shenanigans and bubbling over with joy. Rossini’s appealing score features an iconic, toe-tapping overture and familiar tunes throughout.

Preview Lectures
Featuring local opera experts, these hour-long presentations will include recorded musical excerpts designed to enhance the enjoyment and appreciation of the production. Times and locations are listed below.

West Seattle Branch, 2306 42nd Ave. SW, 206-684-7444.

On Monday, October 2, the Admiral Theater celebrates the International Day of Peace by screening ROOTED in PEACE – a globally transformative, socially-conscious, environmentally-based film. Award-winning filmmaker and environmental activist Greg Reitman shares his journey of self-analysis with audiences seeking inner peace in a world full of people dominated by war, affected by global warming or haunted by inner conflict.

The film follows him as he speaks to thought leaders around the world having conversations around sustainable development, discussing the challenges of our never-ending wars, and facing the realities of uncertainty placed on the world’s institutions by our current political climate. Reitman’s introspective and socially relevant documentary was most recently screened at the United Nations.

From the US to Costa Rica to India, Reitman traveled to visit such luminaries and activists as Deepak Chopra, music legends Donovan, Mike Love and Pete Seeger, film director David Lynch, Nobel Peace Laureate Mairead Maguire, Ted Turner, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and many others.

Their common ideas and examples make ROOTED in PEACE one of the most unexpectedly inspirational viewing experiences magnified by a stellar soundtrack opening with Pink Floyd’s ‘Time’ and closing with John Lennon’s ‘Love.’

Starring Pete Seeger, Deepak Chopra, Desmond Tutu
Tickets are $11.50. Groupon and passes will not be accepted.

He’s also known to be somewhat obsessed with deconstructing popular culture messages about the lives and experiences of Latinos because he’s seen a lot of negative stereotypes. His latest book, “How The West Was Juan: Reimagining the U.S.-Mexico Border”, was just published in July, 2017.

This is a free book-talk event by ‘Words, Writers & West Seattle’ of the Southwest Seattle Historical Society.

As the author of “Mea Culpa: Lessons on Law and Regret from U.S. History” (NYU Press 2015), Bender is a former presenter for “Words, Writers & West Seattle”; he also wrote “Run for the Border: Vice and Virtue in U.S.-Mexico Border Crossings,” (NYU Press 2012); “Greasers and Gringos: Latinos, Law, and the American Imagination, ” (NYU Press 2005) and several other books on culture, politics, migration, history, and law.

Dean Bender is a national academic leader on immigration law and policy, as well as an expert in real estate law. Among his honors, the Minority Groups Section of the Association of American Law Schools presented him with the C. Clyde Ferguson, Jr., Award, a prestigious national award recognizing scholarly reputation, mentoring of junior faculty, and teaching excellence.

Born to a Mexican American mother in East Los Angeles, Bender’s culture and upbringing in a Mexican American household informs his writing and passion for legal reform. An avid reader as a youth, he read over 400 adult-level bestsellers and classics each year from 7th grade through high school. An equally avid fan of popular culture, and a critic of its shortcomings, Bender infuses his writings with a connection to pop culture, while trying to instill timeless values of respect and human dignity for all people.

How the West Was Juan creatively approaches the current political stalemate over restrictive v. compassionate border policy by imagining a different U.S.-Mexico border. It has been referred to as “A Pandora’s box” opened in the hands of a master of law, cultural studies as well as history. Playful, yet historically and legally researched, Bender’s new book sets the boundaries of a new territory for the physical, psychological, moral, and spiritual borders of our country, as well as analyzing the accuracy of our traditional history books. Bender entertains with his kneading of geographical facts with history and current events. (quotes from Gabriella Gutierrez y Muhs).

The Esoterics in concert @ Holy Rosary Catholic Church
Oct 7 @ 8:00 pm

The Esoterics will present a concert of new choral music at Holy Rosary Catholic Church in West Seattle on October 7, 2017 @ 8:00 pm.

General admission ticket prices are $25 at the door ($22 in advance). Discounted admission ticket prices are $18 at the door ($15 in advance) for students, seniors, the un(der)employed, and the differently-abled. Active singers in other choral groups may also attend for $15. Advance tickets are available online at www.TheEsoterics.org (through BrownPaperTickets).

As we weather the extreme winds of uncertainty in the world around us, the ability to stay grounded – both literally and figuratively – is more essential to our survival with each passing day. When we are buffeted by unwelcome outbursts and fractious flippancy, gravity is the force that reminds us of imminent consequence, and our ability to de-escalate conflict.

This October, The Esoterics will present a concert of new choral music that will investigate the many facets of this theme, GRAVITAS, and will inspire us toward greater depth, sincerity, sobriety, solemnity, and thoughtfulness.

This autumn concert program will feature two choral cycles by the New York composer Robert Paterson: The essence of gravity and Eternal reflections. Paterson’s The essence of gravity is a four-movement onomatopoeic exploration of love and war, orbits and tides, from the violence of gravity bombs to the serenity of outer space. His other cycle, Eternal reflections is a triptych of heartfelt poems by Czeslaw Milosz, Paul Laurence Dunbar, and Mary Elizabeth Frye. In addition to these two cycles, the ensemble will reprise Steven Stucky’s madrigal Gravity’s dream, a whimsical setting of a poem by the composer’s longtime friend, Kate Light.

The centerpiece of GRAVITAS will be the world premieres by the three winners of this year’s POLYPHONOS competition: Conrad Asman (from Cape Town, South Africa), Daniel Sabzghabaei (from Ithaca via Baltimore), and Vahram Sarkissian (from Montreal via Yerevan, Armenia). In My eyes are always hungry, Asman set verses of Afterimages by Audre Lorde
written in memory of Emmett Till, a black youth whose 1955 murder was deemed “the hate crime that changed America.” In The blue booby, Sabzghabaei has set lines by James Tate that describes a day in the life of the Galapagos birds, and his vivid score prolongs Tate’s own poetic version of gravitas. In Mheri dur [The door of Mher], Sarkissian renders a portion of the ancient Armenian epic poem, The daredevils of Sassoun, in which a warrior’s own guilt keeps him from crossing the threshold of self-imposed imprisonment.

“Getting to work collaboratively with a great ensemble on realizing a new work is one of the things I am most passionate about,” says composer Daniel Sabzghabaei. “Eric Banks and The Esoterics have a long record of passionately commissioning, championing, and performing the music of living artists across the world at the highest level. I’m stoked to collaborate with this fantastic group!”

“I found something very special for my commissioned piece – an epic poem in which the earth couldn’t bear the weight of a hero, because of the corruption of the world,” describes the composer Vahram Sarkissian. “As a result, David imprisons himself in a cave until the world is ruined and then rebuilt. I am so grateful for this opportunity to collaborate with The Esoterics and Eric Banks.”

All three winning composers will be joining us for the entire concert weekend, and we are excited to share their music with you!
