“Quaker Oats Dynasty!” “Rubber Duck Town!” “LeBron James City!” How do you think we should rebrand the Rubber City? #rebrandingthecity @playakron
Built the first show box for “Rebranding the City.” Sturdy enough for @thejosyjones to jump on ✅ 5 more to go @playakron
Meet the cast and crew of “Rebranding the City: a Humanizing Tour of Akron.” Everyone comes from different artistic, cultural, and social backgrounds. It’s our attempt at exploring the many facets of this city as we prepare to tour throughout 24 neighborhoods from June to December.
Yesterday we performed “New to America” and “Four Languages” from Namaste-WHAT? at @globaltiesakron Global Threads Online Magazine Launch. It was an honor to share two stories that were created from and inspired by the Bhutanese-Nepali experience at a lovely event focusing on cultural heritage.
Obligatory pre-show cast selfie. Namaste-WHAT? is coming back (in quadrilingual style) for @globaltiesakron Global Threads Online Magazine Launch at @akronartmuseum this Sunday from 2 to 5. The event is FREE and open to the public!
We’ve been quiet. But we’ve been busy. Since November, we’ve been collaborating with @playakron on an original play that aims to demonstrate the current Akron narrative. After 23 weeks, we’ve interviewed 45 Akronites from 24 neighborhoods to create a 50 page play. An excerpt of the performance will premiere at StageFest on June 2 and then travel throughout the city this summer #whynotakron #akronohio #culturalheritage #heyakron
“Imprisoned,” a solo piece devised by @nim_tamang and Katie Beck, will play with new additions at @watheatre #biggerthanabreadbox on Saturday at @akroncivic
Our LAST story circle in North Hill happens this Tuesday the 13th. We will celebrate North Hill residents and lovers who want to celebrate and also create next steps for the future of the neighborhood. Join us from 5:30 to 7:30 at Exchange House.
With cardboard, felt, and construction paper, we built backdrops for a puppet show that will premiere in the summer. Partnering with dawn-creations.org in creating a play about aliens from the planet Pinky who take refuge on Earth.
Over 200 people attended last night’s multicultural, interdisciplinary evening with @heartwill. Tonight we will host an open mic response at the Exchange House to give space for creative sharing with our beloved community. Please join us at 7 pm!
