The line up includes Eric Nordin, Turiya Autry and Miriam Feder, three FG 15 producers and Nicole Lane, Festival Director.
Eric Nordin, writer, musical director of The Snowstorm, produced by Coho Productions & Many Hats Collaboration, directed and choreographed by Jessica Wallenfels. The Snowstorm is “visceral and sonically vivid new performance piece” spun around a classic romance with magical elements of puppetry and mask.
Turiya Autry, who is adapting her book Roots Reality & Rhyme into a multimedia theatrical production, directed by Kevin Jones. The work personalizes the experiences of the marginalized and addresses institutional and interpersonal dynamics of power, privilege and violence while reflecting on beauty, potential and love for self.
Miriam Feder, of PDX Playwrights – a volunteer run cooperative of Portland-based playwrights – that will produce several new works at the Festival, including two new plays by Miriam. http://www.pdxplaywrights.org/wp/fertile-ground-2015/
