We are compelled to create: to make, write, and birth. How do we manifest this deep desire? How do our creations—novels, babies, and atom bombs—affect our lives, our culture, and our planet? The Easter Island Project invites audiences to explore the questions through the act of creation itself with Plazm editor and 2GQ director Tiffany Lee Brown, as she prepares for an interdisciplinary art expedition to Easter Island in the South Pacific. Saturday evening’s performance and Sunday’s matinee will involve different creative experiences. Come to both shows and you’ll get a free bagel and coffee on Sunday. Cost: $10 See www.2GQ.org for more, or email easterislandproject at gmail.com The artist’s blog is here.

The famed poet is penniless, miserable, and so uninspired he can barely write an advertising jingle. He could write again if only the woman he loves would return to him, but when she shows up with a surprising offer, Dante is forced to choose between abandoning the only good thing in his life and watching his one true love leave him forever.
Three Portland actors explore the questions of love, immortality, and why a brilliant poet can’t tell a decent joke in the World Premiere of a new play by Kaitlin Phillips, an exciting young playwright!
