The Fabula Rasa is a fairy tale built from scratch, featuring the work of artist Mychael Webb and photographer Corky Miller. Mask play is at the heart of this show, exploring themes in fables of yore. The photographs share stories in fragments, as artifacts of a land beyond the veil. Performers will be modeling some of the masks and costumes throughout the evening, and audience members can, for a sheckel and some courage, try on masks for photographs. Selfies encouraged – #thefabularasa
Exhibit will be in place for all of October at Tiny’s Coffee NE

Double Feature! Come for improv (see below) and stay for the puppet show!
Saturday, September 6th, 2014 at 10pm

Join us Saturday eve at 10pm for a very special evening of art, song and storytelling. East Coast crankie artist and shadow puppeteer Katherine Fahey is coming to town to join creative forces with West Coast crankie and shadow puppet artist Anna Cosper and singer songwriter James Sarsgard, of Baltimore dirge folk band Noble Lake. Videos of Katherine’s award winning, paper cut crankies have been shown at the Jim Henson Film Festival as well as the Atlanta Film Festival.Anna Cosper studied puppetry and illustration in the Netherlands and will be presenting pieces from her recent ‘banjo puppet musical by bike’ tour. James Sarsgard, who moved to Portland in the last year, has been described as “some of Baltimore’s finest contemporary folk music” by the Baltimore City Paper.

You might be wondering, what is a crankie? Crankies combine story, song and folk art all in one small box. Evolved from Europe’s “moving panoramas,” crankies use thirty-five feet or so of a hand-decorated scroll. The scroll is loaded into an illuminated box and hand-cranked past a viewing screen. The scroll reveals the story to the audience, one scene at a time while being accompanied, by a tune, song or story. Sit back and let the magic begin!
