This event will be rescheduled for a later date, which will be shared and updated here. We hope and look forward to seeing you then. Thank you for a beautiful One Book, One Philadelphia season!!
To celebrate the many voices heard in Tommy Orange's There There and throughout One Book programs, join us in closing the season with a polyphonic presentation of performances by local artists, featuring Urie and Cory Ridgeway (Nanticoke Lenape); Native Nations Dance Theater (Blackfeet/Seminole/Creek); Mabel Negrete (Counter Narrative Society) with Campatlanezi (Danza Azteca del Anahuac); master storyteller Tchin (Narragansett); Cassie Rose Mitchell (Modoc/Klamath); We are the Seeds Dance Troupe (Saponi/Tuscarora/Narragansett); and violinist Lauren Garrett (Eastern Shoshone of Wind River).
Following the performances, join the artists for a conversation about their creative and cultural practices, their relationships with Philadelphia, and staying connected to their roots.
This event is co-presented and curated by We Are the Seeds, an organization founded by a team of Indigenous women committed to uplifting and centering Indigenous voices through the arts.
The One Book, One Philadelphia Finale is respectfully and warmly dedicated to the memory of Kyle Shenandoah. We honor his impactful civic work as a beloved Grays Ferry community leader and an advocate for issues affecting Indigenous communities.
