Naked Stages, a 7-month Jerome Fellowship for emerging performance artists at Pillsbury House Theatre, is accepting applications for 2019/20. Three emerging artists will be selected. Applications due Monday, April 1st by 5 PM.

The goal of this program is to assist artists in acquiring tools to opportunities in performance, critical response skills, marketing, and technical production. This program emphasizes the development of artistic process rather than technical production. To this end, artists are not permitted to supplement their technical budget with additional grant funds. Artists are expected to be in residence in the Twin Cities for the mentorship program and production period. This is a time intensive program and artists should consider their ability to commit to the program prior to the application process.

  • Film

This 1991 independent film written, directed and produced by Julie Dash was the first feature film directed by an African American woman distributed theatrically in the United States. Set in 1902, it tells the story of three generations of Gullah or Geechee women in the Peazant family on St. Helena Island as they prepare to migrate to the North on the mainland. Notable for its lush cinematography and nonlinear storytelling, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress.

 

Penumbra’s REEL Talks are film screenings followed by a provocative discussion about the themes. Reel Talks are free, but reservations are required.

  • Drama

In the early 1970s, before Roe v. Wade, before the Violence Against Women Act, Agnes has turned her quiet bed and breakfast into one of the few spots where victims of domestic violence can seek refuge. But to Agnes’s dismay, her latest runaway, Mary Anne, is beginning to influence Agnes’s college-bound daughter Penny. As the drums of a feminist revolution grow louder outside of Agnes’s tiny world, Agnes is forced to confront her own presumptions about the women she’s spent her life trying to help.
