CANCELED – ‘Saint Joan’ @ ArtsWest Theater

On Thursday 3/12, ArtsWest announced the run was canceled.

At ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery:

Saint Joan

Written by George Bernard Shaw (Nobel Prize-winning playwright)
Adapted by Corinne Magin
Directed by Mathew Wright

Tracing the life of Joan of Arc from the siege of Orleans, through her trial and recantation, and culminating with the tragedy that transformed into a legend, Saint Joan is an electrifying portrait of one of history’s most revered and revolutionary lightning rods. Fiery and timeless, Shaw’s masterpiece shines a fierce light on the limits of an individual in a society dominated by political and religious forces. Presented in a new adapatation, stripped-back staging directed by Mathew Wright, prepare to see Joan’s incendiary life shine brighter than ever.

An Evening With Khu.Éex’ @ Online (see listing)
Oct 14 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Members of Khu.éex’, a funk/rock band founded by internationally known glass artist Preston Singletary, will share their music and some stories behind their most recent album Héen.

Registration required. Please click here to register.

This event is presented as part of Seattle Reads 2020 and is supported by The Seattle Public Library Foundation and Seattle City of Literature. Thanks to media sponsor The Seattle Times.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS:

Performers include Preston Singletary, Captain Raab, Edward Littlefield, Swil Kanim, Nahaan, Gene Tagaban and Sondra Segundo.

Khu.éex’ (pronounced koo-eex) translates to “Potlatch” in the Tlingit language, a Native group from Southeast Alaska. Singletary thought of the name Khu.éex’ because of the notion of sharing culture, stories, and music. This is the intent of Khu.éex’, to present a contemporary interpretation of our culture to empower others.

The recording of Khu.éex’s newest album, “Héen” (water in the Tlingit language), coincided with critical events and issues affecting Indian Country (and the earth as a whole) including the construction of Dakota Access Pipeline and the endangerment of clean water in our communities. These events were on the group’s mind during these sessions, which resulted in water being a conceptual connecting thread throughout the material.

Virtual Seattle Reads Presents Tommy Orange @ Online (see listing)
Oct 17 @ 7:00 pm – 8:15 pm

Tommy Orange joins us digitally to discuss Seattle Reads selection There There. He’ll speak with Dr. Christina Roberts, the Director of the Indigenous Peoples Institute at Seattle University.

A limited number of “seats” are available through the digital platform. Registration was required – Event is now full. This event will also be streamed live to The Seattle Public Library’s Facebook page.

Seattle Reads There There is made possible by The Seattle Public Library Foundation, The Wallace Foundation and the Gary and Connie Kunis Foundation, with additional support from sponsors Seattle City of Literature, The Seattle Times, and Vintage Books.

About the Book:

There There is a powerful novel that follows twelve characters from Native communities and explores their connections to one another as each travels to the Big Oakland Powwow.

There is Jacquie Red Feather, newly sober and working to make it back to the family she left behind. Dene Oxendene, who is pulling his life back together after his uncle’s death, has come to work at the powwow to honor his memory. Fourteen-year-old Orvil has come to perform traditional dance for the very first time. Together, this chorus of voices tells of the plight of the urban Native American—grappling with a complex and painful history, with an inheritance of beauty and spirituality, with communion and sacrifice and heroism. Hailed as an instant classic, “There There” is at once poignant and laugh-out-loud funny, utterly contemporary and always unforgettable.

About Tommy Orange:

Tommy Orange is the author of the New York Times bestselling novel There There, a multi-generational, relentlessly paced story about a side of America few of us have ever seen: the lives of urban Native Americans. There There was one of The New York Times Book Review’s 10 Best Books of the Year, and won the Center for Fiction’s First Novel Prize and the Pen/Hemingway Award. There There was also longlisted for the National Book Award and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. Orange graduated from the MFA program at the Institute of American Indian Arts, and was a 2014 MacDowell Fellow and a 2016 Writing by Writers Fellow. He is an enrolled member of the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma. He was born and raised in Oakland, California.

Jill And Sasha La Pointe Discuss Vi Hilbert’s “Haboo” @ Online (see listing)
Oct 20 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

The La Pointes will discuss the newly rereleased edition of Vi Hilbert’s Haboo, a collection of thirty-three stories and legends of the Lushootseed-speaking people of Puget Sound.

Registration required. Please click here to register.

The La Pointes will discuss the newly rereleased edition of Vi Hilbert’s Haboo, a collection of thirty-three stories and legends of the Lushootseed-speaking people of Puget Sound.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

The stories and legends of the Lushootseed-speaking people of Puget Sound represent an important part of the oral tradition by which one generation hands down beliefs, values, and customs to another. Vi Hilbert grew up when many of the old social patterns survived and everyone spoke the ancestral language.

Haboo, Hilbert’s collection of thirty-three stories, features tales mostly set in the Myth Age, before the world transformed. Animals, plants, trees, and even rocks had human attributes. Prominent characters like Wolf, Salmon, and Changer and tricksters like Mink, Raven, and Coyote populate humorous, earthy stories that reflect foibles of human nature, convey serious moral instruction, and comically detail the unfortunate, even disastrous consequences of breaking taboos.

Beautifully redesigned and with a new foreword by Jill La Pointe, Haboo offers a vivid and invaluable resource for linguists, anthropologists, folklorists, future generations of Lushootseed-speaking people, and others interested in Native languages and cultures.

ABOUT THE SPEAKERS:

Jill tsisquał La Pointe is director of Lushootseed Research and granddaughter of Vi taqšəblu Hilbert.

Sasha taqwšəblu LaPointe is a Coast Salish author from the Nooksack and Upper Skagit tribes. She received her MFA from the Institute of American Indian Arts with a focus on creative nonfiction and poetry. She is the great granddaughter of Vi taqwšəblu Hilbert and her namesake. Her memoir, Red Paint is forthcoming from Counterpoint Press.

Upper Skagit tribal elder Vi taqšəblu Hilbert (1918–2008) received a National Heritage Fellowship from the National Endowment of the Arts in 1994, taught language classes at the University of Washington, and cowrote the Lushootseed Dictionary.

PRAISE:

“Engaging, entertaining, and informative. . . Recommended.”―Choice

“Hilbert writes interestingly and informatively about the storytellers and the culture that produced the tales. . . . This carefully edited collection makes a significant contribution.”―Journal of the West

The event is presented in partnership with Elliott Bay Book Company. This event is supported by The Seattle Public Library Foundation, author series sponsors the Gary and Connie Kunis Foundation, and Seattle City of Literature. Thanks to media sponsor The Seattle Times.
