SPACES mounts the first exhibition in Ohio to explore the idea of Afrofuturism, the subculture that deals with the interplay between time, technology, race and culture in the USA. Seventeen artists, from both historical and future viewpoints, tackle the impact of technology on the physical, social and spiritual lives of black people.

From science fiction to film and cultural exploration, the artists create work in painting, video and video games, sound installation, spoken word, sculpture, cinema and drawings. Conceived by The Soap Factory and Obsidian Arts in Minneapolis, the exhibition Afrofuturism was originally curated by Minneapolis-based artist Ernest Bryant and Suzanne Roberts of Obsidian Arts. SPACES introduced six northeast-Ohio artists into the exhibition.

Bread & Puppet
Theater was founded in 1963 by Peter Schumann on New York City’s Lower East Side. Besides rod-puppet and hand-puppet shows for children, the concerns of the first productions were rents, rats, police and other problems of that neighborhood. More complex theater pieces, in which sculpture, music, dance and language were equal partners, followed. The puppets grew bigger and bigger. Annual presentations for Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving and Memorial Day often included children and adults from the community as participants. Many performances were done in the street. During the Vietnam War, Bread & Puppet staged block-long precessions involving hundreds of people. In 1970 Bread & Puppet moved to Vermont as theater-in-residence at Goddard College, combining puppetry with gardening and bread baking in a serious way, learning to live in the countryside and letting itself be influenced by the experience. In 1974 the Theater moved to a farm in Glover in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. The 140-year-old hay barn was transformed into a museum for veteran puppets. Our Domestic Resurrection Circus, a two-day outdoor festival of puppetry shows, was presented annually through 1998. The company makes its income from touring new and old productions on the American continent and abroad and from the sales of Bread & Puppet Press’s posters and publications. The traveling puppet shows range from tightly composed theater pieces presented by members of the company, to extensive outdoor pageants, which require the participation of many volunteers. Bread & Puppet is one of the oldest, nonprofit, self-supporting theatrical companies in this country.

   RUBY DEE TO APPEAR AT THE CLEVELAND PLAY HOUSE Staged Reading of Saint Lucy's Eyes to Benefit Play House, Karamu

Celebrated stage and screen actress Ruby Dee will join actors from Karamu House on the Drury stage at The Cleveland Play House for a fundraiser benefiting both theatres, each currently celebrating their 90th Anniversary Season.

The two theatres have been collaborating for some time on ways to have Dee, a Cleveland native, return to the city. Their efforts result in a staged reading of Bridgette Wimberly’s Saint Lucy’s Eyes at 7:30 p.m. Monday, May 8, 2006. A special reception will follow in The Cleveland Play House Club.

Wimberly, another Cleveland native, now lives in New York City. She began writing Saint Lucy's Eyes in a workshop while a fellow in Lincoln Center Theater's Directors Lab. She became a 1999 Mentor Project Fellow at the Cherry Lane Alternative when Wendy Wasserstein chose to mentor Wimberly’s play, culminating in a workshop production at the Kauffman Theater. Saint Lucy's Eyes went on to a sold-out production at the Women's Project and Productions starring Dee and moved to The Cherry Lane Theatre.

The event is a fitting addition to the FusionFest line-up. FusionFest, The Play House’s upcoming first-annual multidisciplinary performing arts festival will run May 2 – 21, 2006. Tickets for the reading are $50.00.

Tickets to both the reading and the reception are $100. For $250, up to six individuals may attend the reading, the reception and join Dee and Wimberly for lunch at 11:30 a.m. Monday, May 8 in The Play House Club. The roster of luncheon guests also includes Play House Artistic Director Michael Bloom, Managing Director Dean Gladden, Karamu House Artistic Director Terrence Spivey, and Karamu House Executive Director Gerry McClamy.
