Red Lineage Community Workshop Set for 4/26
Red Lineage Community Workshop (FREE)
Saturday, April 26, 2014 2 - 5 p.m. @ Northwest African American Museum (Seattle, WA) www.redlineage.co
RED LINEAGE is the title of an original poem, adapted to allow others to personalize their own versions. When performed, these poems echo and overlap, thereby fostering a sense of community despite real and/or perceived social and demographic barriers. Within the Red Lineage, everyone is red-a metaphor that invokes the idea of the bloodline. REGISTER ONLINE AT www.redlineage.com.
Members of our thriving creative community in Seattle, will have the opportunity to work closely with well-known writers likeAnastacia Tolbert, Harold Taw, and Evan Peterson, to create their own original Red Lineage poems. Finished works will be recorded as part of the project. Registered participants will then receive guidance from project archivists, Naomi Ishisaka,Zac Buschmohle, and Lara Davis to capture each participant's creation. Lastly, everyone will be invited to share their own Red Lineage poems as Daemond Arrindell, Shoko Zama, and Sadiqua Crutcher perform live adaptations inspired by these Red Lineages using different forms of dance and spoken word.
Red Lineage is an interactive poem that has been shared and presented locally and internationally as part of Miko Kuro's Midnight Tea.
