Animal Fire Theatre presents: Julius Caesar

Event: 
Thu, 07/18/2013 - 6:30pm - 9:00pm

ANIMAL FIRE THEATRE PRESENTS:

Julius Caesar

By William Shakespeare

 

Animal Fire Theatre is proud to announce that our 2013 Shakespeare in the Park production will be Julius Caesar. 

 

In a time when politics often become personal and political figures are alternatively traitors or heroes, Julius Caesar remains a relevant exploration of political power and struggle.  This production provides a raw look at the show and reveals how personal revenge and political rhetoric are so frequently intertwined.  We invite you to see this timeless piece of political tragedy staged only footsteps away from our own Capitol Building. "How many ages hence shall this our lofty scene be acted over in states unborn and accents yet unknown!"

 

AFT welcomes guest director Jenny Greenlee and is thrilled to present this powerful take on an ageless story of political and personal power. Performances are scheduled to run for three weekends. The dates are Thursdays through Sundays, July 18-21, 25-28 and August 1-5. All performances will be at 6:30 P.M. This year we will be performing on the Capitol Campus, in the Water Garden on the East side of the campus near the Korean War Memorial. All performances will be free to the public. We recommend that audience members bring a cushion or folding chair for their comfort. Information about how to park for free, how to use Intercity Transit's Dash Shuttle and our weather policy will be available on our website: www.animalfiretheatre.com.

Slavery in the Northwest: Eva Abram tells the Charles Mitchell Story

Event: 
Thu, 02/28/2013 - 7:30pm - 9:00pm
Born a slave, Charles Mitchell was brought to Washington Territory in 1853. Storyteller, writer and actress Eva Abram will share the history of one of the few documented cases of slavery in our state’s history in a conversation at the Olympia Timberland Library on Thursday, February 28 from 7:30 to 9 p.m. Like all library events, the presentation is free of charge.
Washingtonians’ opinions about a possible Civil War influenced their opinions about Mitchell’s status as a slave. In the tempestuous climate, Mitchell made a break for freedom – and his actions nearly started a war between the U.S. and Canada. Through this story, Abram will examine and discuss with the audience how ideologies move geographically. The migration to Washington attracted Americans with different socioeconomic experiences from both Northern and Southern states. Did moving to Washington affect peoples’ opinions on slavery.
As a member of the 2012-2014 Humanities Washington Speakers Bureau, Ms. Abram seeks to engage audiences in conversation on the topic of her presentation. Abram uses her talents as an actress and storyteller to share American history from an African-American perspective. She has been commissioned to write a story about Charles Lindbergh’s historic flight and has written and performed a piece for the Washington State History Museum’s Women’s Suffrage Jubilee. She has also presented workshops on storytelling.
