The latest from the inventive Williams Project and the first of its two “Bar Plays” this summer, ‘Small Craft Warnings’ centers on adrift characters. But the production winds up feeling adrift instead.
The Scratch, a free festival of new works, starts off tonight with two personal works by some of Seattle’s hottest artists: Nicholas Japaul Bernard and Jasmine Joshua, with development assistance and direction by Eddie DeHais. DeHais shared insight about the two autobiographical pieces, and guided NWT through the development process of each.
Highlights include a bustling First Thursday, two openings of intriguing new works, and a free arts & performance festival; plus, a 20-hour come-and-go showing of new dance, and the return of new play readings to Solo Bar.
NWT is far from a fashion mag, but we appreciate stand-out style. And fun. And two (very different) events in Tacoma this weekend look apt to please with a lot of both: ‘Couture and Cars’ on Saturday, and ‘Northwest Thrift-Con’ on Sunday. Plus, catch the ongoing Tacoma Night Market and explore some other vintage shopping while you’re there.
