Picks of the Week

It's a week so huge, we couldn't pick just one thing. Here are our TWO picks for this week:

The Creation Project Showcase presented by the Central District Forum at the Rainier Valley Cultural Center

The Creation Project is the CD Forum's annual showcase of some of the most talented Black performers around. This year's showcase features a "post-punk epic faerie tale" from okanomodé (aka SoulChilde), The Twisted Tale of Two – a Circus Opera by Cristina Orbé, Wild Tales of a Renegade Halfbreed Bulldagger by Storme Webber, and The Year the Revolution Came to White High School High, a one-woman play by Amontaine Aurore.

Watch teen reporter Tracy M's interview with Amontaine:
