Suzan-Lori Parks and the Band
A Town Hall Takeover Concert

We’re throwing open the doors of our newly renovated building for a full-day takeover by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Suzan-Lori Parks!

Parks she treats us to an evening performance by Suzan-Lori Parks and the Band, performing music all about the now with plenty of flashbacks to the past. With a Modern Soul, Black-Country, Psychedelic-Afro-Righteous sound, they play acoustic instruments over loops “thickly textured like a magenta and orange paisley edible spoken-word velour singing and flying magic carpet shag rug ride.”

Check out her other takeover events:

2PM: “Watch Me Work” Interactive Theatrical Performance

5PM: Lecture and Poem Coronation

Come for one event and stay for all three—one ticket gets you in all day! Join us for an exploration of the creative process and three unforgettable events with one of the most acclaimed playwrights of our time.

Suzan-Lori Parks is the first African-American woman to receive the Pulitzer Prize in Drama. She is a MacArthur “Genius” Award recipient, and in 2015 was awarded the prestigious Gish Prize for Excellence in the Arts. Her project 365 Days/365 Plays (where she wrote a play a day for an entire year) was produced in over 700 theaters worldwide, creating one of the largest grassroots collaborations in theater history.

Presented by Town Hall Seattle.

Community Partners: Hansberry Project, Hedgebrook, Hugo House, Intiman Theatre, Allison Narver, New City Theatre, Seattle Repertory Theatre, Seattle University Department of Performing Arts and Arts Leadership.
