Lest We Forget      4/22/2018 12:00:00 AM
 
Lest We Forget at 12:00 AM on 3/26/2018
Start Time: 3/26/2018 12:00:00 AM
Location: Mount Zion Temple
1300 Summit Avenue, St. Paul
St Paul, MN 55105
End Time: 6/4/2018 12:00:00 AM
Telephone: (651) 698-3881
Lest We Forget …is an art exhibition with literary vignettes. Two artists, Sandra Brick and Fred Amram, explore a Jewish youngster’s coming-of-age, first in Holocaust Germany, and then as a refugee in the United States. To commemorate Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance 2018, Mount Zion Temple will host the Lest We Forget exhibition throughout the month of April. Special programming, sponsored by the Jewish Community Relations Council, is scheduled at Mount Zion on April 12 from 7 to 9 p.m. A powerful artistic experience changes the viewer into a participant who is reminded to NEVER FORGET and is empowered to accept responsibility to repair the world. The Holocaust did not begin with Kristallnacht in 1938 nor with Auschwitz in 1940. As early as 1933, Fred Amram was born in a Catholic Infants Home because Jewish mothers no longer had access to public or Jewish hospitals. In an exhibition of multi-media works, textile artist Sandra Brick translates Amram’s stories into visual art. We learn about the early days of the Holocaust and about a Jewish refugee family coming to America, absorbing a new language and adapting to a new culture.

Combustible Company presents The Imaginary Invalid by Moliere at 7:30 PM on 4/14/2018
Start Time: 4/14/2018 7:30:00 PM
Location: 550 Vandalia St

Combustible Company presents The Imaginary Invalid by Moliere The Imaginary Invalid Written by Moliere Adaptation by Oded Gross and Tracy Young With original music by Paul James Prendergast Original lyrics by Oded Gross, Paul James Prendergast, and Tracy Young Directed by Kym Longhi April 14th – 28th, 2018 at the Gremlin Theater The Imaginary Invalid tells the story of Argan, a miserly hypochondriac who hatches a scheme to get free healthcare by marrying off one of his daughters (Angelique) to a young doctor (Thomas). Dependent on extravagant cures and desperately worried about his ability to continue to pay for his medical care, he will do anything. Angelique however, having already fallen in love with a florist (Cleante), has other plans for her life. Argan’s clever servant (Toinette) and gregarious brother (Beralde) come to her aid as they seek to unwind both his nefarious plot and his unhealthy obsession with quackery. Though Moliere wrote it over 300 years ago, The Imaginary Invalid is a strikingly-relevant, passionate farce that shines a light on the wounds we inflict upon ourselves, the scars of life, and the lengths that some will go to achieve "affordable" healthcare in a seemingly-incurable system. This play-with-music features catchy Motown- and pop-inspired songs, commedia dell'arte roots, and sharp modern language. This fresh translation of The Imaginary Invalid by Oded Gross was originally produced by the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in 2011. Mr Gross’s plays have been staged throughout the United States and abroad, most notably at the Idaho Shakespeare Festival, The Great Lakes Theater, The Theatre at Boston Court and The Moscow Art Theatre in Moscow, Russia. Composer Paul James Prendergast recently designed sound for the Guthrie Theatre’s 2017 production of Watch on the Rhine and his sound design for the original broadway production of All the Way was nominated for a Drama Desk Award in 2014. The Imaginary Invalid runs for three weeks in April at the new Gremlin Theater in the Vandalia Tower building in St Paul. The set (designed by Paul Herwig) is a monstrous life-support contraption, replete with tubes and vials; a crazy healthcare “system” that binds our invalid and creates obstacles for all those around him. The characters negotiate the set with elaborate physical contortions, giving the audience a graphic and visceral experience of the sociopolitical complexities of healthcare in our country. In addition to an intimate thrust stage ideally-suited to this piece, the lobby features an installation that transitions the audience from real-world experiences to the world of the play by mirroring the machinery of the set with stories from real people about their healthcare experiences, links to information about healthcare, and a virtual space for audience feedback. The Imaginary Invalid features Combustible Company co-artistic director Erik Hoover (Bluebeard’s Dollhouse, Herocycle) as Argan and Ashawnti Sakina Ford as Toinette in her first production with Combustible Company. Other newcomers Antonio Duke, Joanna Griffith, Daniel Sakamoto-Wengel, Ricky Morisseau, Julianna Drajko, and Jonathan Beller will join Combustible Company veterans Isaac Bont (Bluebeard’s Dollhouse), Jonathan Saliger (Bluebeard’s Dollhouse, Herocycle), and Anna Pladson (Bluebeard’s Dollhouse). Combustible Company’s other co-artistic director, Kym Longhi (Bluebeard’s Dollhouse, Herocycle), will direct the production which will also feature her costume design. The creative team includes set and prop design by Off Leash Area’s Paul Herwig, sound design by C Andrew Mayer, and video design by Jim Peitzman (Herocycle, Bluebeard’s Dollhouse). About Combustible Company Combustible Company is a St Paul-based theatre company founded in 2013 that uses actors’ physicality to create visceral performances that spark the imagination and ignite conversation. Combustible Company’s inaugural production, Herocycle, was named among the best shows of 2013 by City Pages and Lavender Magazine, the latter of which also listed the show’s actors (Erik Hoover and Jim Peitzman) among their Outstanding Performances of the Year. The Imaginary Invalid is Combustible Company’s third evening-length production. TICKETS General admission tickets are $28 and a limited number of $15 economic accessibility tickets are available for each performance.
