This November, Let’s Give Thanks to Art

We’ve made it to November, and we’ll need thirty more chicken scratches drawn on the wall before we can say we’ve made it to December. Between now and then, our calendar is full of activities—all of which will be happening in the confines of our own homes. If you, like us, need an escape from the same, familiar backdrop of wherever you Zoom from, we suggest going on some audio adventures.
This month, as we brace ourselves for the election, check out It Can't Happen Here, a satirical audio drama written in 1935 about a president promising to return the country to greatness; can it get any more relevant than that? Mustard Seeds, part of Pork Filled Production’s Unleashed Festival of pulp stories, explores the Underground Railroad through a staged reading. Explore a different underground phenomenon through Northwest Film Forum’s Newcomer, described as “A Seattle Hip-Hop Mixtape.” Newcomer packs in hundreds of local performances from Seattle’s vibrant hip-hop underground into 82 minutes.
If you still find yourself having unhealthily long staring contests with your walls, check out Liminale, a live Zoom dance performance from the Cornish College of the Arts. Encouraging audience engagement, Liminale will transform your living space into a creative space!
And our feature-form pieces will give you a glimpse of the world outside your house. Are you curious to know how donation money equips TeenTix Arts Partners? We will be exploring the effects of donations from the Friday Foundation on several of our Arts Partners. And, to reflect on all the art events that we fell in love with last season, be sure to read our coverage of the 2020 (VIRTUAL) Teeny Awards, taking place this November 21- 22.
