Unsettled Dangerous Women

Posted

Discover the region’s foremothers when pioneer and Indigenous women gather on stage to explore the settling of Central Washington. Three years in the making, Unsettled begins in the 1800’s and blazes a trail between past and present with a wide variety of original art forms presented by creative, visionary female artists from North Central WA. Narrated by The Moon, Unsettled, the fourth in a series of Dangerous Women productions, illuminates the inherent contradictions when two cultures inhabit the same landscape over time.

Presented inside one of the region’s theatrical gems and featuring local art and handcrafts on set, Unsettled offers a diverse cross section of cultural innovation on stage, including scenes created by Latina, Indigenous and African American participants. Ground-breaking for the topics tackled and the quality of “edutainment,” Unsettled is a rare chance to experience outstanding, completely original theater made possible by support from the National Endowment For the Arts, Icicle Fund, ArtsWA and the City of Leavenworth.

Under Artistic Director/Producer Rhona Baron, Dangerous Women’s creator cast includes: Holly Blue, Bernadine Phillips, Julie Edwards, Mandi Wickline, Karen Francis McWhite, Shari Hagopian , Becky Fishburn, Stacy Coronado, Briar Hoper, Carolyn Wilson, Marile Kunkel, Hannah Rice, Norma Ramirez, Emily Keenan, Molly Elder, Feather Iukes, Cascadia Weaver-Marson, Star Weaver-Marson, Sally Singer, Nataly Gonzalez, Betsy Angela Arriaga, Pilar Cuevas. Citlalli Mandujano, Yolanda Ponce, Karen Artiaga, Bernadine Phillips, Ernestine Iukes, Tashina Iukes and Angie Ploch. The character of the show’s narrator is written for the third season by Ari Gabinet and Rhona Baron in spoken word. Unsettled will run live May 20 and 21 at Snowy Owl Theater in Leavenworth. Tickets range from $15 for students to $26, with adult discounts for purchasing by the pair. Call Icicle Creek Center for the Arts at 548-6347 x1 or purchase online at icicle.org.
