Adelaide Windsome (ACG ’11) will be hosting the Sent(A)Mental Project* Benefit Show on Thursday May 24th 7pm at Geppetta’s Workshop (43rd & Chestnut, use side alleyway of church on Chestnut). The evening includes performances by: Emily Bate, Shomi Noise from NYC, a stick and a stone, Liz and the Lost Boys and queer sci fi readings from Laser Life, plus special guests. Admission is $5 (no one turned away) – bring some extra bucks for merch and beverages!
The Sent(A)Mental Project is an artistic memorial to suicides in the GLBTQIA community. S(A)M “hope(s) to bring visibility to mental health issues and draw much needed attention to the thousands of people lost within our community over the years due to overwhelming stigma and lack of dialogue around these issues.” The project accepts any kind of medium and accepts submissions on an on-goings basis.
As part of a project funded by the Leeway Art and Change Grant, Adelaide will be creating a short film to submit to S(A)M entitled The Weeping Cabin. The film will utilize puppetry and magical realism to confront depression, trauma, and suicides and demonstrate the beauty that comes with survival. This event will be filmed. So in addition to the wonderful music and spoken word, there will be a five-foot tall puppet with a house for a head wandering around. http://stitchingtentacles.com
