Friday, April 26 | Salsa & Strings at the LCCC

It’s a Community Days two-fer tonight at the Lincoln City Cultural Center. From 4 to 6:30 pm, Oceana Family Literacy Center will present a reprise of “Secrets of Salsa & More.” Oceana families will be bringing their best salsa recipes, and they’ll be handing out complimentary bags of tortilla chips. You’re invited to sample, talk to the cooks and learn about the recipes, and there will be limited quantities for sale, as well.

When you’ve sampled the salsa, head down to the auditorium for a Community Days Concert with “guitarrista” James Kline. Classical guitarist, composer, singer-songwriter and innovator of the 19-string arch harp guitar, Kline is an artist who constantly renews and reinvents himself as he travels the world. As a classical guitarist he studied in Spain and England, but he has also worked as a wilderness guide and a commercial fisherman. He is co-founder of the neo-Celtic group Bardou, with whom he performs regularly.

Kline’s concert begins at 7 pm. Admission is by donation.

“He is a complete musician, with outstanding technique on the guitar, and a lovely, warm expressiveness. A great guitarist, who should be heard.” ….David Russell

Culture, Of Course! - An Affair to Remember on May 4, 2019

 

Thursday, May 09 | Theatre West Presents “God of Carnage”

Theatre West presents this comedy of manners without the manners, a Tony Award winning play written by Yasmina Reza, translated by Christopher Hampton, and directed on the LCCC stage by Bryan Kirsch. A playground altercation between eleven-year-old boys brings together two sets of Brooklyn parents for a meeting to resolve the matter. At first, diplomatic niceties are observed, but as the meeting progresses, and the rum flows, tensions emerge and the gloves come off, leaving the couples with more than just their liberal principles in tatters.

Playing at 7:30 pm Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, May 9-June 1. Tickets are $15 adults, $13 seniors and students. Warning: this play contains strong language.

“God of Carnage” was produced in 2009 on Broadway by Robert Fox, David Pugh & Dafydd Rogers, Stuart Thompson, Scott Rudin, Jon B. Platt, The Weinstein Company, and the Shubert Organization. [A] streamlined anatomy of the human animal…delivers the cathartic release of watching other people’s marriages go boom. A study in the tension between civilized surface and savage instinct, this play is itself a satisfyingly primitive entertainment.” —NY Times. “Elegant, acerbic and entertainingly fueled on pure bile. It’s Reza’s sharpest work since ‘Art’.” —Variety. “Brutally entertaining…in another of Christopher Hampton’s exquisite translations, [Reza] cannily manipulates social observations that appeal to vast audiences and creates characters that bring out the best in actors.” —NY Newsday. “Reza has established herself as a master [of] magnificently constructed plays.” —Entertainment.

Saturday, May 11 | Conversation Project: What We Risk with Mosley WOtta

What do we risk when we lay ourselves open through music, painting, or any other art form? What might we give up and what might we gain when we set out to craft something beautiful or provocative or simply expressive that the world did not previously hold? Given today’s artistic economy, to what extent is exposure — to other people and of the creative self — desirable? Join artist and educator Jason Graham, a slam poetry champion and speaker who performs hip hop as Mosely WOtta, for a conversation exploring the relationship between self-expression and vulnerability.

This Oregon Humanities Conversation Project is co-sponsored by the Sitka Center for Art & Ecology and the Lincoln City Cultural Center. Admission is free.
