A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle
When: September 13th at 7:30 pm
Where: Washington Hall, 153 14th Avenue
Noirish Lesbiana is an interdisciplinary installation by writer and performer Storme Webber, bringing together literary, visual, and performing arts in an atmospheric exploration of lost stories from Seattle’s pre-Stonewall gay culture in Pioneer Square and Chinatown of the 1960s.
Utilizing video, live performancec, visual arts and sound design this work embraces Noir aesthetics to tell moody, submerged and hidden tales of Seattle’s multicultural queer past: marginalized, invisible lives made visible. This work restores absent narratives of Seattle’s culture through the voices of urban Natives, working class, Black & multicultural lesbians and gays, and the day-to-day realities of life when gay life itself was criminalized. The audience will find themselves in the heart of a mysterious and untold story. The project was supported by a 2014 Arts Project award.
