The making of the short film Echo at Satsop began with Etsuko Ichikawa's response to the triple disaster that occurred in her home country of Japan on March 11, 2011. A magnitude 9.0 earthquake hit the Tohoku region, causing a massive tsunami that led to the collapse of the Fukushima nuclear power plant. Tragically, due to ongoing radiation leakage, its devastating impact on the people and environment around it, will continue for years to come.
A Rose for Danny will be presented as part of the Irish Heritage Club's 'Irish Week' celebrations. The play, written by local Seattle playwright, Kevin Moriarty, is based upon the bizarre, true-life events that occurred to his Irish-American family in the 1950's. When last staged in 2001, 'Herald' reviewer Dale Burrows said of the play, - It was serious, down to earth, and as rich with ethnic lore as St. Patrick's day. It engaged, enclosed, surprised, and satisfied - Rose is a marvelous drama. .."

Humor, enchantment and suspense await you in this magnificent story from the Arabian Nights.
At every performance of this improvised comedy, audience members will be asked to locate some of the most beautiful and best-reviewed locations on travel website TripAdvisor.com and then track down the lone one-star review posted to an otherwise beloved attraction. From there, improvisers will recreate (with many creative liberties) the people, circumstances, and series of events that lead to the reviewer taking out their frustrations through a suspiciously negative review.
Most of Steve Costie's drawings in this show are based on experimental architecture. That is, architecture that may not (most likely won't) ever be built; however, given the right circumstances, these works would be constructed of bamboo. The practical aspects of engineering and construction don't interest Costie - what does, is the drawing itself, independent of real-world concerns. The drawing may be inspired by architectural potential, but it exists as an autonomous entity and that suffices. Drawing is an end in itself.
In this show Elizabeth Ockwell's drawings, watercolors, and multi-process works fall into three categories: architecture, landscape, and zoologically inspired imagery. For over twenty years Ockwell has been going annually to Paris where she draws, among other historical buildings, the Paris Opera House (Palais Garnier). She has come to know all the staff and management of this splendid example of Beaux Arts architecture. The drawings show particular fidelity to the architecture and, from them, the viewer gets a fine understanding of the exceptionally ornate grandeur of the structure. Ockwell's landscapes, less well known to Seattle viewers, are of the Skagit Valley, and these works along with her expressive drawings of birds and animal skeletons show the wide breadth of her talent.
