Well, here I go tooting my own horn and recommending "Prompt for the Planet: Community Creates" as the perfect solo, date or family event. Doors open tomorrow (this Sunday) at 1:30 and the show starts at 2:00. It's free, and it features some of Iowa's most beloved performers, poets and artists.
The event is a collaboration between PromptPress and the Lena Project (two of PorchLight's orgs-in-residence) and the Englert.
Add on the IC Joy March, eco-activism, performances by aerialist Mimi Ke, poets Caleb Rainy, Donika Kelly, and David Duer; dance by the UI Dance Company; music by James Tutson, Abbie Sawyer, and the Family Folk Machine; an installation by Sayuri Sasaki Hemann, and Emily Jalinsky; and what you have is pure fabulousness. An eco-cabaret that would knock the socks off of Liza Minelli, and will speak to the hearts of the eco-activists in all of us.
See you there!
Joy March starts at PS1's 299 N. Gilbert St. Location. Doors open at the Englert at 1:30.
