Multicultural Film Fest: The Canary Effect

Tue, 03/11/2014 - 6:00pm - 9:00pm

The March 11 presentation by the JHS 13th Annual Multicultural Film Festival is entitled The Canary Effect.  As a metaphor, this title describes the prescient nature of brutal treatment inflicted upon First Nation people (Native Americans) through practices and policies from the hands of early American settlers and political officials.  Like canaries in coalmines, First Nation people foreshadowed future injustices, some which have been disputed and corrected, others coninue on  Many First Nation people are now layered with multigenerational stresses from racism with resultantly shortened lives.

Come; view The Canary Effect documentary, and engage in our community discussion Tuesday, March 11, 6 PM at the North Portland Neighborhood Library, 512 N. Killingsworth Street.  Our presentations are always informative, family friendly, and FREE.

Continuing it's 24th season, triangle productions! is proud to present the 2010 Tony Nominated Play NEXT FALL.

Jason Glick plays Adam an uptight person "of a certain age" who has fallen for a much younger man, Luke, played by James Sharinghousen.

Age is not the issue, but religion and faith is. Adam believes in nothing and Luke believes that there is a higher power which is in control of everything. When a crises pits Adam against Luke's family what will happen next?

triangle productions! is partnering with Basic Rights Oregon in a talk back and support about a) right to life b)who to tell and most importantly, hospital visitations.

Ian Jackson, Cleveland student and the High School Student Union
Jeff Kippelman, PPS Substitute teacher and KBOO Board member

The Grassroots Education Movement premiered a new documentary, written and directed by New York City public school teachers and parents, created in response to Davis Guggenheim’s highly misleading film. 'Waiting for Superman' would have audiences believe that free-market competition, standardized tests, destroying teacher unions, and the proliferation of charter schools are just what this country needs to create great public schools.

Triangle Productions Presents: Medicarefully-Fabulous!

Thu, 02/06/2014 - 7:30pm - Sun, 03/02/2014 - 4:00pm

Now in her mid-60s, Wendy Westerwelle’s back with her new show, Medicarefully-Fabulous! Wendy has a new take on life – she calls it: “The last part before I drop dead.” Join us as we welcome old favorites like Zumi, her manicurist, and her Aunt Golda from Miami. You’ll also meet Dosha, her Botox doctor, her denstist Dr. Rodriguez, and her new-age therapist Mallory. This courageous new work is a series of hopeful, inspiring, moving, hilarious, and extremely personal stories about aging, facial hair, sex drive (or the lack of it), fashion, being Jewish, and especially FOOD. In other words, life…according to Wendy.

Wendy has been on Portland stages since the mid-1970s, and was the first supporting actress
recognized by the Drammy Award Committee (known then as the Willie Awards) in 1979! She is best
known for her 1982 musical, Soph! The Last of the Red Hot Mamas, a show she performed here and
toured throughout the west coast with a two year stint in Los Angeles. In 1992 Wendy returned to the
Portland stage with her one-woman show, Recovering from Myself(ves).

Wendy has always treasured performing for the Portland community and beyond, but she views this
show as a significant personal milestone. “Turning 65 is one of the reasons I wanted to do this show.
