“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. The youth of today are not just dealing with the racist conflicts of the 60’s; they are wrestling with the violent attitudes of their own communities’ ‐i.e. guns and drugs that amass the ever present delinquent elements of their surroundings.

Shelley, Timaya Hepburn, Nena Uke, Sami Yacob‐Andrus, Quante Coles, James Hill Brooks, Ronald Smith; and directed by William (Bill) Earl Ray. “Oh, be fiery. By all means be fiery.

"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.

This presentation will help participants understand the root causes of sexual violence, its prevalence, its impact on survivors, and the dynamics that make sexual violence a stigmatizing crime. The presenter will discuss how perpetrators of sexual violence chose victims based on perceived or created vulnerability and lack of credibility. Oppressed communities are often perceived as more vulnerable, and have less perceived credibility than privileged classes of people and therefore are often targeted by perpetrators.

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.
