Playwright Reed McColm presents the audience with a window into The World Trade Center on the morning of September 11, 2001, where separate lives are woven together into one dramatic web of reality. This Emmy award- winning writer provides an overwhelming glimpse into the irrational specter of 9/11, offering a sweeping theatrical experience as well as a mode of emotional catharsis.

The play is a community endeavor between students and staff of South Puget Sound Community College and The Evergreen State College (as actors and technical support), and local musician Derek Johnson (for the soundtrack).

All proceeds from the fifth anniversary performance on September 11 will go to local Thurston County Fire Departments (donations in lieu of ticket sales at the door).

Information: Call (360) 876-6833

Russian Animator, Director and Actress Nina Shorina will present four of her short films, Door, Dream, Poodle and Alter Ego, with a discussion following each. In addition a reception will be held during the intermission.

Born in Moscow, Shorina was a popular child actress who studied first acting and then film making at the State Institute of Cinematography (VGIK). She began working at Soyuzmultfilm in 1976 and directed several children's films including "Poodle." Just prior to perestroika Soyuzmultfilm's administration approved "Door," a script ostensibly about a boy repairing a door, believing it would also be a film for children. However, the film Shorina delivered in 1986 was for a grown up audience, the first of a trilogy that would explore the Soviet person's reaction to the dramatic political changes sweeping in the Soviet Union. The film won several awards, including the Grand Prize at the Oberhausen (Germany) Festival of Documentary and Short Films.

The film Dream (1988), a critique of nostalgia infused with views of the Soviet Union, was an Official Selection of the Sorrento (Italy) Film Festival. Alter Ego (1989), a study of the relationship of art to everyday life via self portraiture, won first prize at the Ryazan (USSR) Animated Film Club of USSR and was based on a short story written by Shorina.

Jane Pilling of the British Film Institute described Nina Shorina as "one of the only woman animators in the former Soviet Union to have created a substantial body of work that ranks her along the established (male) names in Soviet animation."
