Celebrate the Holidays with Art

As we settle into the cozy fall weather, November beckons a slew of holiday celebrations. One way to get into the spirit is by enjoying some good old art, maybe to bond with a loved one you haven’t caught up with in almost two years, or maybe to treat yourself on a solitary afternoon. In the coming month, the TeenTix Newsroom will be hurtling through ballet shows, film classes, timeless plays, and holiday thrillers—and we hope you can join us in the journey.
To kick off the month right away with a healthy dose of feminism, we highly recommend checking out From Heartthrob to Movie Star at SIFF on November 4th. This virtual class focuses on the power of stories written specifically for a female audience and the importance of continuing to tell these stories despite the film industry’s increasing disregard for their value. Or, if you’re interested in female empowerment but want something a little more self-guided, Henry Art Gallery is hosting Diana Al-Hadid’s Archive of Longings exhibition, which will showcase sculptures exploring the natural world, Syrian and Muslim histories, and the female body.
Featuring the works of three globally-acclaimed choreographers, PNB’s Beyond Ballet will be showing from November 5-7. Beyond Ballet is on track to live up to its name and exceed the boundaries of dance through the provocative performances of its wide cast. TeenTix tickets aren’t available, but that doesn’t mean you can’t catch the upcoming Newsroom review.
Speaking of art renowned world-wide, Book-It Repertory Theatre will be adapting The Three Musketeers by Alexander Dumas into an audio drama available to catch on November 23. Set in 1625 Paris, the tale centers around Athos, Porthos, and Aramis, three soldiers of the queen’s guard. Book-It’s production of this old classic promises a fresh creative direction to this timeless adventure.
And Seattle Public Theater’s showing of Christmastown is already sold out, but you can still keep an eye out for teen coverage of this event and all the other events we’ve just mentioned right here on the TeenTix blog!
