*ASL cancelled* ART's "The Hombres" interpreted 9/30/2022

Artists Repertory Theatre presents
an interpreted performance of

ASL interpretation is cancelled 
due to COVID infection in the interpreting team.

The Friday 9/30 performance will continue; but it will not be interpreted. 

The Hombres


Date & Time: Friday, September 30th at 7:30 pm
Tickets: Pay at your comfort level $20-60
Location: Ellen Bye Theatre at The Armory (lower level)
                128 NW Eleventh, Portland OR 97209

Set in New Jersey, The Hombres offers a delicate, funny exploration of masculinity and intimacy of male friendships. Three Latino construction workers are drawn to the yoga studio, initially by voyeuristically watching women in classes from their job site next door. Gradually, their curiosity draws them in, one by one, to private, after-hours classes with the gay instructor whose sexual orientation challenges their machismo and sense of self. A laugh out loud, fresh, nuanced look at the complexity of male friendships through the lens of the machismo culture.
Artists Repertory Theatre is committed to protecting the health and well-being of patrons, artists, and staff. All patrons to ART events must wear face masks at all times except when eating or drinking in designated areas.

Biased Brains - ASL night Fri 9/23

Why Do Our Brains Care About Belonging & Inclusion?

DATE & TIME: Friday 9/23/2022.  Doors at 7:00pm / Show at 7:30pm

LOCATION: The Siren Theater, 315 NW Davis St, Portland, OR 97209

INTERPRETERS:   Ruth Nardecchia & Chelsea Huber

TICKETS: Suggested scale of $20-$40 (PWYW)

RAFFLE PRIZES: Expect goodies galore from local PDX businesses

We’re leaving shame ‘n’  blame at the door as we explore the Neurology of Equity & Inclusion in an approachable (and dare we say FUN?!) format. Is it a workshop? Is it a play? It’s BOTH!

We’ll first learn about why our brains are hard-wired to do some weird sh*t in a 45-minute workshop facilitated by Monica Dailey. Everyone is at different stages in their personal Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) journeys, and this workshop will be an opportunity to check in with yourself and take advantage of this safe space for quiet self-reflection. There will be no group discussion or public sharing.

After a 15-minute intermission, the workshop concepts come to life in a scripted play. Welcome to Sk8Town, where our fun-loving roller rink employees experience a barrage of brain biases! Our fully BIPOC and/or LGBTQIA+ cast collectively wrote the script, drawing on personal experiences and sprinkling on humor to make these stories more palatable. 

Starring & Written by Elena Afanasiev, Jonathan Wexler, Mariah Mercedes Munoz, Monica Dailey, Shelly Santa Cruz, and Talon Bigelow
