LaRue, Michele The Yellow Wallpaper History,
Literature- Creative Writing,
Performing Arts- Theater
A vibrant performance of Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s classic: =The Yellow Wall-Paper.= In 1885, marriage, a well-meaning husband, and a questionable =cure= brought Gilman to her knees. Relying on blind faith, instinct, and courage, she willed herself back to health. Perhaps vital to her recovery was writing her brilliant =The Yellow Wall-Paper,= published in 1891. Transforming autobiography into fiction, she penned [pronounced editor William Dean Howells] a story =to freeze our young blood.= Gilman’s tale continues to chill readers today, dazzling feminists and historians, mystery- and horror-story enthusiasts alike, with its wit, suspense, and superlative style. Michele has performed a fully staged production of THE YELLOW WALLPAPER--adapted and directed by Warren Kliewer--in theatres from Maine to Minnesota to Virginia, for 20 years. THIS readers' theatre interpretation is designed for smaller and simpler library spaces. Michele's careful research guarantees a production faithful to its historical context. Costumed in a bustle dress of the period, Michele stretches the boundaries of oral interpretation in a performance capturing every nuance of Gilman's exquisite writing. =Your portrayal of that ingenious crazy woman is still with me.= National Portrait Gallery, DC. =LaRue is as close to perfect as possible.= Midland College, TX

Haynes, Jeff The Rhythm & Your Words Literature- Poetry,
Music,
Performing Arts- Literary Artists
Sometimes the key to self expression is to listen. Percussionist Jeff Haynes creates an array of percussive landscapes, to help writers heighten their awareness and sensitivity to the rhythm and the range of their inner voice. Over the course of this two day writing and performance workshop, participants will be engaged in various exercises and discussions to help them connect Jeff’s percussive textures with their inner voice. They will see first hand how percussion can bring out different inflections in their writing and delivery. The workshop invites participants to bring their poems to perform with Jeff and/or come with an open mind, ready to write and perform something inspired by the sessions. As participants listen to Jeff play, they will become in-tune with the “voice” of the rhythm. Participants will be challenged to allow their writing and performances to reflect on: how the rhythm makes them feel; where does it take them; and what their inner voice will say in return. Each participant will perform with Jeff.
