Pork Filled Productions presents FAST COMPANY

November 15 @ 8:00 pm - 9:25 pm
Theatre Off Jackson,
409 7th Ave S, Seattle, WA 98104 United States

“There are crosses, double-crosses and schemes devious enough to impress the most jaded flimflammer.”

–NY Times

When con games are the family business, watch your back – because it’s not just about the score, it’s about who you can trust! Meet the Kwans: a Chinese American family of expert con artists, grifters and thieves. But when daughter Blue masterminds the job of the decade stealing the world’s most valuable comic book, it might just spell disaster for the whole family, including her brothers Francis and H and their mother Mable. Pitting new game theory against old-school cons, truth against illusion and family bonds against betrayal, it’s a race to see who will come out on top in this fun, stylish crime caper.

Rated “PG-“13 for strong language and intense situations.

Fast Company is a play written by Carla Ching, directed by Amy Poisson and produced by Narea Kang, Maggie Lee, May Nguyen & Roger Tang.

Featuring Daniel Arreola, Mariko Kita, Kevin Lin and Sara Porkalob.

This production is produced in conjunction with the Theatre Off Jackson and enjoys support from 4Culture and the Office of Arts & Culture Seattle.

Pork Filled Productions is the theatre offshoot of the veteran sketch comedy group, the Pork Filled Players. PFP is home for Asian American theatre artists who crave creating new works that stretch the boundaries of Asian American theatre.

“Other Ends” by Lily Slater

November 19 @ 7:00 pm - November 29 @ 5:00 pm
Glass Box Gallery,
831 Seattle Blvd S, Seattle, WA 98134 United States

Glass Box is proud to present “Other Ends,” photography by Lily Slater.

 

About the show:

“You can only see something for the first time once. As a new visitor of the United States I am overwhelmed with this country’s extensive beauty and my series ‘Other Ends’ depicts my first interactions with this land.

I have always been lured by landscapes and nature. Whether it’s the forest meeting the ocean across the west coast or the unique ecosystems along the walls of Utah’s canyon cliffs, this continent has left indelible impressions on me. Most of these pieces are collections of places I’ve visited in The United States and this series documents my exploration of this country. As an outsider I aim for the viewer to see not only the subjects themselves but the multitude of first-impressions the imagery has left on me. By using the format of film photography I limited myself to single takes of the depicted subjects to ensure that the creative process occurred during my first experiences with the subject matter.

Utilizing the method of multiple exposures, there is a suggestion of overlapping facets and truths to a single experience. Perhaps the present is a composite of many layers, and with this style of photographs the layers can be peeled away to reveal impressions otherwise inaccessible.

I have just begun my explorations and I am excited to share how I see it.”

Opening reception Nov. 19th 7 – 10pm. Show runs through Nov. 29, Weds.-Sat. 12-5pm.
