Front Row Center: Strange Fruit
Join Marcie Sillman, KUOW's Arts and Culture reporter for Front Row Center! Strange Fruit draws its title from the 1937 poem and song of the same name by Abel Meeropol and made famous by the great jazz singer Billie Holiday. The impetus for this world premiere work is lynching and its usage as a tool of racial terrorism during the Jim Crow Era. For this dance/theater work, the facts of lynching act as a springboard into an interior space, a state of mind. Strange Fruit tracks choreographer Donald Byrd’s feelings as a response to lynching and plays out as a series of dance/theater vignettes.Where: Washington Hall Get Tickets
Front Row Center: Office Hour
KUOW Arts and Culture reporter Marcie Sillman brings Front Row Center to ArtsWest to discuss Office Hour. Alarmed by his grisly writings, a professor invites a troubled student to her office to shed light on – and build a bridge across – the dark clouds that surround him. As the clock ticks down and tensions rise, she learns that notions of “good” and “bad” are dangerous illusions. A stirring call for empathy and a bold experiment in form, this searing play tackles thorny issues of gun violence, immigration, and “the other” to reveal our essential, human need for connection.Where: ArtsWest Playhouse Get Tickets
