Our Stuff: Trinkets, Treasures or Time To Let Go Coming
…Sunday, November 20th at 5:30 pm in the Celebration Center
Our Stuff: Trinkets, Treasures or Time To Let Go, a movement theater presentation directed by Barrie Barton, will be performed at Jubilee! on the 20th of November at 5:30 pm. Described as “authentic theater,” the performance interweaves personal story, movement and multimedia, creating a montage of human experiences that are both personal and universal. “Throughout life, we come to decision points about things we cherish and what is no longer useful – and that includes real objects as well as personal habits or behaviors,” says Director Barrie Barton. “These ‘things’ are the archival threads of our life, mapping where we came from and where we are going.”
Through a 9-week workshop, 15 participants – men and women co-created the performance. The process includes movement exploration, writing and conversation. Barton explains, “The Community Choreography Project’s creative process is to harness the unspoken, the hidden, the unshared and transform it into the spoken, seen and expressed actions through the container of creativity, performance and community.”
Tickets are available at the door for $10. For more information, please contact Barrie Barton at [email protected]. This performance is sponsored by the Arts Team.
Winter Items Needed
The Jubilee! Service Team is sponsoring a collection drive to help the homeless at AHOPE Day Center. “Our Day Center is the front door to all of our services. We provides things like showers, mail, storage, coffee and a safe place to rest, but we also assess people for housing assistance because our ultimate mission is to end homelessness with permanent housing.” A red collection bin is in the foyer through November 20th. Items needed for both men and women and include hats/toboggans, gloves, scarfs, hand warmers, socks and cough drops.
It’s Not Too Late
The Jubilee! Book Study Group began discussion of The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World, by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Archbishop Desmond Tutu & Douglas Abrams just this past Monday. To quote from a review: “… (the book) shows the many ways in which these two great spiritual leaders, both of whom are also great teachers of peace and reconciliation, embody the totality of what it means to be both ordinary and simultaneously outrageous, mischievous, and completely unpredictable!” It is not too late to participate. Please join us! Questions? Call Claudia: (828) 713-3720.
