Christine Deavel & J.W. Marshall
Christine Deavel and J.W. Marshall, poets and co-founders of Open Books, read from and discuss their most recent project, Vicinity/Memoryall, a play published by Seattle’s Entre Rios Press. “Two characters, Del and Lee, search for a memorial to an act of violence that had an explosive cultural impact on their rapidly shifting city, a quest that finds them negotiating challenging physical and interpersonal landscapes. They share the stage with Clare, a vulnerable docent-like soul whose personal tales skirt the edges of Del and Lee’s search. At its core Vicinity/Memoryall investigates the power and purpose of memorials for individuals and the culture at large.”
Free/no tickets are necessary. Vicinity/Memoryall will also be performed July 11-27 at 18th and Union: an Arts Space. Tickets and more information about the Arts Space performances on Facebook: @VicinityMemoryall.
