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.

Jeff Glassman and Lisa Fay - New Works

Event: 
Mon, 01/14/2013 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm

From todays inbox:

Jeff Glassman and Lisa Fay
A theater performance of new works


Monday, January 14 at 7:30pm
Lecture Hall III, The Evergreen State College


Glassman and Fay combine a long history of mime/dance performance with a study of composition and cybernetics, resulting in a unique combination which is both hilarious and thought-provoking.  Their work is an attempt to expand the potential of human movement through composition and structural analysis, deeply informed by the work of Gregory Bateson, Francisco Varela and Herbert Marcuse.

(The free performance is part of Evergreen's Plato lecture grant series, funded by an endowment based on some of the royalties an early group of students and their faculty member earned in a program project working on the Plato educational software system.)

 

"Or," A Neo-Restoration Comedy by Liz Duffy Adams

Event: 
Thu, 01/24/2013 - 8:00pm - 10:30pm

Meet Aphra Behn: poet, spy, and soon to be the world's first professional playwright. Sprung from debtors' prison after a disastrous overseas mission, Aphra is desperate to get out of the spy trade. She has a shot at a full production if only she can finish her play by morning despite interruptions from sudden new love, actress Nell Gwynne; complicated royal love, King Charles II; and very dodgy ex-love, double agent William Scott - who is planning to murder the King in the morning. Against the backdrop of a long drawn out war and a counter-culture of free love, cross dressing, and pastoral lyricism, the 1660s look remarkably familiar in this touching and hilarious neo-Restoration comedy.

Every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 8:00pm.
