Join us for the first Tuesday Night where we will be in conversation with… Dendrochronologist Colin Laroque about forest fires, climate change and what trees can tell us.
With the rise of opioids in our city and others – we will speak to Michelle, an Indigenous woman who formally used drugs and is now in recovery. The importance of culture and community made a large positive impact on her and she will speak about her journey.
And finally we’ll hear from former drag king Jack Saddleback about the politics of dressing up and the brownface blunder.
These conversations and more Tuesday Night!
Complimentary coffee, tea and donuts will be served with a special thanks to Darkside Donuts!
Join us Tuesday night where journalist/playwright Joel Bernbaum, actor/musician Lancelot Knight, and visual artist Andreas Buchwaldt will be joined by local guests for the inaugural performance of ‘Tuesday Night’. The artists and guests will take up subjects ranging from the local to the global, unpacking topical issues in an open and honest space. Through sincere gestures Bernbaum will take the part of host, Knight will transform dialogue into spontaneous song, while Buchwaldt will respond by adapting and evolving the set.
Referencing modern uses of the historical Roman forum, ‘Tuesday Night’ is a talk show, a town hall, and a Reddit thread; a layered performance weaving together theatre, live music, and responsive sculpture.
Visit AKA throughout the project to witness the process, reflect in the forum – a ledger for upcoming performances, and participate every Tuesday night.
