After a nice holiday break, the gloves are off.

We jump in, feet-first with an exploration of what it means to diversify performing arts audiences. The August Wilson Red Door Project sets out to help theater groups reflect their community. We check in with them and three other interesting productions around town. Plus:

  • Music from Arturo O’Farrill. He’s playing a date in Bend this weekend
  • Gerard Schwarz talks about his All-Star Orchestra and his recent gig conducting in Vancouver
  • A filmmaker chronicles one female fighter’s quest for MMA gold in Fight Dreams
  • A scouting alternative encourages kids to be makers. Design games? Fashion cardboard prototypes? Design graphics? Sky’s the limit…
  • Paul King and Walter Lamb of White Bird Dance tell us what’s on their radar this winter
