Theater: Aliens, Immigrants, & Other Evildoers
A Sci-Fi Latino Noir Multidisciplinary Bilingual Performance by Jose Torres-Tama
April 7, 2010
Ashé Cultural Arts Center at 7:00 p.m. - FREE

With a sci-fi Latino noir aesthetic, Torres-Tama transforms into numerous ALIENS who challenge the flaws of a country built by immigrants that vilifies the same people whose labor it exploits. He inventively fuses film interviews from a variety of people in the three commissioning cities of Houston, New Orleans and D.C., who respond to the questions: “Since the Pilgrims arrived without papers, why were they not immediately deported, and where was immigration then?”

Meet Kenyan Visual Artist Wangechi Mutu
Reception
April 9, 2010
Ashé Cultural Arts Center at 7:30 p.m. - FREE
Carol Bebelle (Co-founder & Executive Director of Ashé Cultural Arts Center, Ron Bechet (Chairman of Xavier University's Community Arts Program) & Tye Waller (New Orleans Women's Art Collective) invite you to a reception for Visual Artist Wangechi Mutu. The New York-based artist offers a visceral response to her critiques of gender, culture and mass media imagery. Exploring the female body as a site of engagement and provocation, Mutu's work is frequently populated by hybrid figures that possess an almost abject beauty. The artist samples imagery from disparate sources--medical diagrams, fashion magazines, anthropology and botany texts, pornography, and traditional African arts. The artist's signature aesthetic utilizes tactile and fleshy surfaces to readily engage in her own unique form of myth making, bringing physical and conceptual depth while making social and personal commentary.

Theater: This Pen is Red
April 15-17, 2010
Ashé Cultural Arts Center at 8:00 p.m. - $7
A Free Southern Theater Institute production. Encounters with family, authority, education and medial all shape one's moral framework and sense of self in significant ways. How do the messages we receive serve to perpetuate stereotypes and cement systems of power and privilege? And how can we resist racism, classism, and sexism to assert our own unique identities and values? This Pen is Red explores the tension between the world as we know it and the world we envision. For more information, contact Junebug Productions: (504) 577-0732.
