This Friday at 7, we intended to present an online offering of Acts of Fate, featuring memoir, performance, and poetry on the theme of the moment in your life that changed everything.
Our country is now grappling with just such a moment. Our hearts are heavy for George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and countless others who have suffered systemic oppression and police brutality. Therefore, out of respect and solidarity, we have decided to postpone Acts of Fate to a future date.
At Thrown Stone, we are acutely aware of our privilege and the hard work we need to do to live up to our ideals. We are determined to use this moment to face our shortcomings, and recommit to diversity, equity, and inclusion in our board, staff, and offering.
We look forward to sharing our plans with you, including concrete goals and measures of our progress.
We’re pleased to announce two post-show discussions, led by poet and educator, Barb Jennes, and Thrown Stone board member and Managing Director of the Sheen Center for Thought and Culture, Andrew Levine.
The Casts of Cry It Out by Molly Smith Metzler and Birds of North America by Anna Moench recently got together to discuss their families, the families in the plays, and the challenges facing new moms today:
What does Family mean to you? What are the biggest challenges facing your family today? We welcome your comments and invite you to join the conversation July 11-28 at Ridgefield Conservatory of Dance.
