Some stories are best told through books. Others, through a lens, or sometimes a microphone. Regardless of the platform, one key element must be present: voice.
If you want to see this sentiment in full living color, check out the Idaho Falls Arts Council’s April 13 presentation of Northwest Passages. It’s the latest in an ongoing theatric series called Living Voices, set for 7:30 p.m. at the Carr Gallery.
The multi-media performance chronicles a young Swedish immigrant in the Pacific Northwest during an era of expanding railroads, gold fever, labor tensions and the onset of World War I.
Facilitators James Francis and Karen Leibert will guide a post-performance discussion, including input from the actress, Rachel McClinton.
“We’ve loved presenting Living Voices over the past couple of years and this one is particularly exciting because it brings the stories closer to home,” notes Brandi Newton, Executive Director of the Idaho Falls Arts Council. “Most of us in the west came from somewhere else originally, and this time period was one of rapid change for those ancestors.”
Cost: $35 (includes dessert)
