March 3. International Women’s Day March
As we near International Women’s Day on March 8, AF3IRM LA has organized it’s 4th march and rally in DTLA for a future where women are free from violence against women, free of oppression from the state & other institutions and simply free to thrive. Yes Tomatoes, it’s hard to believe we still have to march on these issues.
“UPRISING: Forward to a Feminist Future,” is the theme for this 2018 celebration of International Women’s Day. The spirited march/walk/rally through a wonderful part of DTLA makes visible the needs and issues of women, especially women of color. It is led by transnational/women of color, but this march is inclusive of all people. There will be speakers, poets, and musicians throughout the day.
March 8 – April 1. Pat Kinevane Trilogy
When I saw Pat Kinevane’s premiere of “Underneath” at the Odyssey a year and a half ago I was left speechless. It was truly one of the most amazing, gratifying, spellbinding and unique pieces of theatre I have ever seen. I can only imagine how stunning his other pieces are in his trilogy of solo work are. But I have no doubt with Kinevane performing with Fishamble and Georganne Heller producing at the Odyssey all shows will be breathtaking.
Olivier Award winners Pat Kinevane and Fishamble: The New Play Company return to Odyssey Theatre Ensemble from their home base in Dublin with a limited engagement of the Irish writer/performer’s extraordinary trilogy of solo work. The three plays, each of which brings to the surface the people who live under the nose of everyday life, will be performed on a rotating schedule, with Fishamble artistic director Jim Culleton again at the helm.
“Underneath” (winner, 2017 Stage Raw Award for Solo Performance) is the blackly comic, rich and vivid tale of a life lived in secret. It explores the surface — and what lies underneath. Is beauty really only skin deep? Does ugliness hide somewhere deeper?
“Silent” is the touching story of homeless McGoldrig, who once had splendid things. But he has lost it all – including his mind. He now dives into the wonderful wounds of his past through the romantic world of Rudolph Valentino.
And “Forgotten” reveals the interconnecting stories of four elderly people living in retirement homes and care facilities around Ireland using a unique fusion of Kabuki dance and Irish storytelling.
