“The Lady Aoi” tells the story of a living ghost. Mouawad: “I didn’t know what a living ghost was until I read this work. In Japanese culture, someone who is out of control with jealousy will unintentionally, in their sleep, bring to life their own living ghost. This ghost will walk the earth and inflict danger on the cause of the jealousy.” The living ghost Lady Rokujo (Jeannie Rogers) haunts Lady Aoi (Gwendolyn Duffy) who is being treated for sex complexes at a strange hospital run by a peculiar nurse (Emily Welsh). On the night of this play, Lady Rokujo encounters Lady Aoi’s husband. The original story has its roots in one of Japan's most legendary collection of stories, “The Tale of Gengi,” written by Murasaki Shikibu in 1005 (on this site – considered “a badass chick of Japanese History”). The first ever novel serial was so popular with the Japanese that by the 15th century the Japanese Noh Drama of the same name had become and remains one of the most popular Noh Dramas to date. Previews – Mar 11 to 17 Opens and Plays – Mar 18 to 27 Show times are Thurs, Fri and Sat at 7:30, Sun at 2:00 $15 to $25 pay what you can For mature audiences, adult content, nudity Tickets can be purchased at the door, or ticketswest.com, or by calling: Imago Theatre 503.231.9581 TicketsWest 503.224.8499 Jerry Mouawad returns to the stage after an 18-month hiatus (last production: Pinter’s “The Homecoming” Oct 2014). Mouawad is staging a Japanese fusion work by Yukio Mishima entitled “The Lady Aoi” that opens at Imago Mar 11. Yukio Mishima is considered one of the most important Japanese authors of the 20th century; he was nominated three times for the Nobel Prize for Literature. For the erotic ghost tale “The Lady Aoi,” Mishima modernized a 15th century Noh play, setting it in a 1956 hospital. Mouawad promises a highly- stylized production accompanied by percussionist Blade Rogers, with sound design by John Berendzen (Liminal) and Greg Ives, lighting by Jeff Forbes and costumes by Sarah Mainsfield, with influences from experimental icon writer/director Richard Foreman (a landmark presentation in 1997 “Pearls for Pigs”in Portland)and riffs from Belgian director Ivo Van Hove (current innovative NY staging of Arthur Miller’s A View from the Bridge).

Kermit Frazier’s Smoldering Fires allows us to view the world through the eyes and spirit of our youth.

"Assata Shakur talks about socialist development in Cuba." The former Black Panther and Black Liberation Army cadre who has had political asylum in Cuba since 1984, talks about socialist practices in Cuba, racism, patriarchy, and the way forward for socialist politics. The All African People's Revolutionary Party (A-APRP) is hosting its annual discussion events as a way of informing discussion about the worldwide struggle for Pan-Africanism, which we define as one unified socialist Africa. We believe Pan-Africanism is the key to the problems facing over 900 million Africans who are scattered and suffering in 113 countries. We also believe Pan-Africanism is our contribution to the worldwide movement for peace, justice, and scientific socialism. Also, don't forget that the A-APRP feeds children every Monday and Friday at Colombia International Cup Coffee Shop in N. Portland. Look for us to expand our work with other local organizations in New Columbia to help build an independent African school there. Contact us at www.aaaprporegon.org for more information. Here is the list of future screenings: Wed, Apr 27th - "Kwame Ture on zionism as Africa's Enemy" Smith 236 Wed, May 18th - "A Message from Women in Gambia" Smith 333

Hey, you can take a class at the Portland Underground Grad School entitled, "The Problem with Privilege: Bias, Fragility, and Taking Action to End Racism": For full information, check out the website: http://www.pugspdx.com/the-problem-with-privilege/ This class is: For those who have a hard time putting their finger on progressive "liberal" forms of racism, and want to be able to name it and/or correct it constructively. For the person who wants a new way to effectively understand and interrupt "isms" of all sort. For those who want to be a powerful ally, and take on race issues without co-opting the issue or otherwise interfering with a community driven process. For anyone who struggles with how to "fix" privilege - you get the idea, you know you have it, but how to remedy the effects when it's largely blind to you (when you didn't ask for it)? For anyone who wants to explore the concepts of White Fragility more completely. It's SUPER HANDY, don't be thrown by the name. This class meets weekly, on Monday evenings, through April.

Who Are My People? The Killing of Kokopili, is a documentary film on the current and controversial topic of the build-out of large scale renewable energy in the deserts of the West. The LA Times indicates we are at a "Flashpoint" between competing value-systems. Bodies have been exhumed and geoglyphs destroyed in an area that is a long-term indigenous settlement. WHO ARE MY PEOPLE? depicts how the world's energy firms have met their match in a small group of Native American elders, in the hottest desert on the planet. The film takes us behind the scenes of two of the largest solar projects in the world, "fast-tracked" by US renewable energy policies. Director Robert Lundahl, Alfredo Figueroa and friends will host a ‘free range’ conversation with audience members drumming, dancing and sharing stories KBOO and the Clinton Street Theater have partnered to bring you a monthly film series about....well, it could be about radio, or about anyone of the many programs that KBOO airs--politics, labor, human rights, and, of course, lots of music. A new film or event every second Thursday of the month, so stayed tuned to the radio and check back on the website, because you never know what might be happening month to month.

It's just northeast of the Sunshine Dairy, but still south of I-84. Our shop entrance is on the NW corner of that block, through the chain link fence. Please sign up if you can make it and bring your own coffee cup if you like hot coffee!

Critic and film historian Jonathan Rosenbaum has said IMAGINE THE SOUND “may be the best documentary on free jazz that we have.” IMAGINE THE SOUND is an eloquent tribute to a group of highly celebrated artists that helped forge the avant-garde jazz of the 1960s. Focusing on four important and celebrated figures (Cecil Taylor, Archie Shepp, Paul Bley and Bill Dixon) allowing them to reflect on their careers and those around them that, in many ways, defined the sound of '60s jazz. Plus, there's music. The music in this film is brilliant. https://www.facebook.com/events/1149810548383434/

"Kwame Ture Talks about zionism being Africa's enemy." Kwame Ture, formally known as Stokely Carmichael, gives a talk on the zionist movement, the difference between zionism and Judaism, and the role zionism plays in destabilizing the African liberation movement and why. The All African People's Revolutionary Party (A-APRP) is hosting its annual discussion events as a way of informing discussion about the worldwide struggle for Pan-Africanism, which we define as one unified socialist Africa. We believe Pan-Africanism is the key to the problems facing over 900 million Africans who are scattered and suffering in 113 countries. We also believe Pan-Africanism is our contribution to the worldwide movement for peace, justice, and scientific socialism. Also, don't forget that the A-APRP feeds children every Monday and Friday at Colombia International Cup Coffee Shop in N. Portland. Look for us to expand our work with other local organizations in New Columbia to help build an independent African school there. Contact us at www.aaaprporegon.org for more information.

Author Margaret Guroff reads from her new book, The Mechanical Horse, about the wild and little-known ways in which the bicycle has impacted American culture. With cities across the country adding miles of bike lanes and building bike-share stations, bicycling is enjoying a new surge of popularity in America. It seems that every generation or two, Americans rediscover the freedom of movement, convenience, and relative affordability of the bicycle. The earliest two-wheeler, the draisine, arrived in Philadelphia in 1819 and astonished onlookers with the possibility of propelling themselves “like lightning.” Two centuries later, the bicycle is still the fastest way to cover ground on gridlocked city streets. Filled with lively stories, The Mechanical Horse reveals how the bicycle transformed American life. As bicycling caught on in the nineteenth century, many of the country’s rough, rutted roads were paved for the first time, laying a foundation for the interstate highway system. Cyclists were among the first to see the possibilities of self-directed, long-distance travel, and some of them (including a fellow named Henry Ford) went on to develop the automobile. Women shed their cumbersome Victorian dresses—as well as their restricted gender roles—so they could ride. And doctors recognized that aerobic exercise actually benefits the body, which helped to modernize medicine. Margaret Guroff demonstrates that the bicycle’s story is really the story of a more mobile America—one in which physical mobility has opened wider horizons of thought and new opportunities for people in all avenues of life.
