Something so RIGHT, and one RWONG


This week I’m writing to recommend two FABULOUS shows. The first is a wonderful, imaginative, hilarious, poignant clown show featuring my good friend Sarah in her company Nomadic Theatre Co. The show is called Running Into Walls. If you’ve never seen a clown show (and I’m NOT talking Ringling Brothers) this is a great introduction into that delightful world. The story follows two very close clown friends as they take a strange journey to confront mortality. Wonderful physical comedy, engaging performances, touching story. Plus, you’ll find out the origins of the word “muffin” and what the word “Himalaya” means. The show runs through April 27 at Theater! Theatre!, 3430 SE Belmont, Portland.

Next is Roberta Wong’s art exhibit at IFCC gallery in North Portland. If you’ve never been there it’s a pretty darn cool space. She’s showing some of her installation work from the past 2 decades and it’s all still extremely relevant stuff exploring race, gender, history and identity. I wrote about Roberta’s show in The Asian Reporter so check out my story. The exhibit runs through April 26.
