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.

LaRue, Michele The Apple Tree: a celebration of spring and poor housekeeping History,
Literature- Creative Writing,
Performing Arts- Theater
Old Sarah Blake—=small and intense=—is a relentless dynamo of obsessive good housekeeping. Her neighbor, Sam Maddox—a gangly giant of a man—has =lived somehow without much work.= When a fall through =one of Mother’s nice cane seat-chairs= puts old Edison Blake out of commission, the Maddox family learns =It’s terrible hard work cleanin’ house.= The collision of these two very different couples on one eventful afternoon reveals the true value of a glorious spring day. New England author Mary E. Wilkins Freeman conjures her story with insight, humor, and affection. Written in 1903, THE APPLE TREE harkens back to a time when literature was written for the ear, and Freeman’s evocative prose gives LaRue ample opportunity to enthrall. In her honest, vibrant performance, the actress embodies four distinct characters, using “Down Eastern” dialect to recreate a lost era. Michele is a member of both actors’ unions: Actors’ Equity and SAG-AFTRA. She has performed vintage American short stories for two decades, touring nationally with a wide-ranging repertoire of TALES WELL TOLD.
