OPEN from Walking Shadow Theatre Company

OPEN is a magic act that reveals itself to be a resurrection. A woman called The Magician presents a myriad of tricks for our entertainment, while attempting the impossible: to save the life of her partner, Jenny. Is our faith in her illusions enough to rewrite the past? The clock is ticking, the show must go on, and you mustn't look away. Amazing as it may seem, this Magician’s act may be our last hope against a world filled with intolerance and hate.  ASL interpreter: Rebecca Rick

The Edge Between

The Edge Between is an evening of stories and reflections exploring Matt Guidry’s paradoxical journey, simultaneously normal and unique, of raising a child with significant disabilities. Through lyrical storytelling, music, movement, and projected imagery, Matt takes us along to that place in life where we have a foot in two worlds. It’s a story that lives at the intersection of perception and perspective, where it’s always a matter of finding balance. Collaborating with Open Eye favorites Maren Ward (Director) and Kevin Kling (Creative Adviser), Matt brings three decades in the Twin Cities as performer, director, choreographer, teaching artist, parent, and disability advocate to culmination in this evening of extremely personal storytelling. There are very few moments when you know the rest will be different.  Moments that define.

Play: The Hiding Place

PLAY:  The Hiding Place - a true story about the ten Boom family hiding Jews in their home during the Nazi occupation of Holland, and the horrific imprisonment that they faced as a result of this.  However, this play does not focus on the dark side of this time in history, but on the Light that came into the darkness. It focuses on the deep and real faith of Corrie Ten Boom and her sister Betsie; on the hope that kept them looking upward; and on the love they experienced from their heavenly Father and shared with all those around them.  This play will leave you inspired to also live a life of faith, hope, and love.

Threads Dance Project presents “In the Margins’

The Karen L. Charles Threads Dance Project invites you to its fall season performance, In the Margins. This performance features Charles’ exploration of those who often live “in the margins of society” – an examination of implicit bias as experienced by deaf/hard of hearing communities, and women in America. Threads will premiere a new work, To Hear like Me, which seeks to bridge the gap between the deaf/hard of hearing community and the hearing community; creating an experience with dance that incorporates American Sign Language, music visualization, and silence within the piece. Deaf Dance Artist Canae Weiss and ASL Interpreter Terryann Nash will join the company. Threads will also perform Femthology - a compilation of repertory works examining the experience of being female.
