The Garden of Rikki Tikki Tavi

  • Thursday, September 25, 2014— Sunday, November 9, 2014

Seattle Children's Theatre

By Y York
Adapted from the story by Rudyard Kipling
Directed by Rita Giomi

Rudyard Kipling’s classic tale comes alive in this funny, colorful adaptation by prize-winning playwright Y York. This sweet story of friendship and cooperation takes place in an exotic Indian garden and tells the charming tale of an unusual friendship between an innocent baby mongoose (the hero, Rikki), a vain and bossy bird, and a dear but befuddled muskrat. Through the shared danger of facing Nag, the sneaky cobra, these unlikely comrades find that they are smarter, braver and more resourceful together, and that a strong home makes room for everyone.

Cast includes Jose Abaoag '99 as Chuchu, Samie Detzer '10 as Rikki.

Tensegrity Deviations

  • Saturday, November 8, 2014
  • Saturday, December 6, 2014

Spectrum House

Amber Anderson '02 will be the featured artist exhibiting at Spectrum House in Georgetown during 2nd Saturday Art Attack this fall. The exhibit, Tensegrity Deviations, is a systems-based series of mixed process encaustic paintings & graphite drawing prints. Where anatomical correctness & symmetry typically exist, tensegrity- tension & integrity- is explored when deviations occur within the body's structural system. Intended as an investigation into the micro climate laws of nature, the series examines the resulting adaptation of nature due to distortion on a macro scale.

"Castle Rock is for Lovers," Lauren Iida, 2014, cut paper

Lauren Iida: Castle Rock is for Lovers

  • Wednesday, October 15, 2014

Alumni Gallery, 1000 Lenora Street, Seattle, WA — Floor 3

Artist Reception: Wednesday, December 10, 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.

Cornish College of the Arts is proud to present a solo exhibition of work by Lauren Iida (AR’14) in the Alumni Gallery. Castle Rock is for Lovers is an homage to the matriarchs of Iida’s family who endured incarceration during World War II at Tule Lake “Relocation Center” in northern California. The images in Iida’s delicate cut paper works come directly from a collection of photos belonging to the sister of her grandmother. These personal photos date back to the 1930s. By examining these glimpses into the past, Iida investigates her family’s complex history. By rendering them lovingly in cut paper, she honors and memorializes this complicated past.

Moon Falling

  • Friday, November 7, 2014— Saturday, November 8, 2014

Velocity Dance Center

The Three Yells Performance Company premiere...

Veronica Lee-Baik’s (DA '98) latest piece, Moon Falling, investigates the cosmic price we pay for modern man’s hubris. The piece draws inspiration from many sources – a painting by her son, daily headlines on environmental degradation, James Joyce’s Ulysses – as well as her own identity as an artist, mother, and citizen of the world. The common thread in these sources is the moon and the harmful ways our pursuit for perfection and convenience is hurtling us toward an irreversible new moon phase.

Moon Falling juxtaposes modernity and traditional performance art through the use of striking contextual layers and visceral movement. The audience will bear witness to seven primary dancers as they unravel, expose, and interact with their environment, forcing viewers to examine their relationship to the continuous destruction of our planet.

Moon Falling is Lee-Baik’s first work since taking a hiatus to raise her son. She hopes this work will encourage artists who need to step away to return with renewed perspective and vigor.

Three episodes from the original series sure to ignite memories for some and nightmares for many.
