Stage and Studio on 05/24/11
Listen to Stage & Studio Tuesday, May 24 at 11 am on KBOO 90.7 FM. Host/Producer Dmae Roberts features Bobby Bermea and Anya Pearson of BaseRoots Theatre Company and their new show My Soul Grown Deep --a collaboration with VOX. We'll also have Writers Read #7 with Michelle Rae Anderson who reads an excerpt from her forthcoming book, The Miracle in July.
First up, BaseRoots Theatre, in collaboration with Eric Hull of VOX: A Spoken Word Chorus. Their show My Soul Grown Deep explores 300 years of African-American poetry, from Phyllis Wheatley to Saul Williams. The aural journey is lead by Shuhe Hawkins as Langston Hughes. The title comes from Hughes' poem, The Negro Speaks of Rivers.
Performances are May 26 - June 4. For more info visit BaseRootsTheatre.org.
Then we hear a two-minute reading by Michelle Rae Anderson. She calls herself a "experiential author, media ecologist, and pie-maker."
Since July 2009, Anderson has been unraveling her semi-autobiographical book, The Miracle in July, as a "first draft" web serial. In this week's show, Anderson will read an excerpt from the series. The book is due to be published later this year, and Anderson's future plans include a "making-of" series, movie script, podcast with dramatic readings from the book, and more.
This segment features music by Portland composer David Ornette Cherry. His music can be heard at DavidOrnetteCherry.com.
