I Wish I’d Said An Anti-Racism Theatre Event

Sunday Dec 18th 3pm

Sunday Jan 15th 3pm

Sunday Feb 19th 3pm

Co-Hosted by Natali Freed & Sam Osoro

Where: Democracy Center 45 Mt Auburn St Harvard Square

Description: Using theatre warm-ups & role-playing to gain practice & strength for standing up against racism, standing up for equality, and confronting unearned racial privilege. All are welcome, please respect the seriousness of the topic. Participants bring from memory (or written down) scenes where they heard a racist comment (directed towards themselves or someone else) and they wish they’d spoken up but weren’t able to. Role-play a new ending to scenes by: saying what you wish you’d said. Discuss, come up with, & act out ways to respond. Act in each other’s scenes, or just come and watch. Optional / additional “scenes” participants may choose to role-play: Are you curious how your scene may have transpired had the genders (and/or other potential power disparities) been different? Try your scene but change the genders (and/or other potential power disparities) of the people in the scene. And/or: Do you have a fear that a certain group of people thinks a certain way about you (has a prejudice)? Create & role-play a scene to challenge your fear. Say what you wish you’d or they would say. Discus & act out different outcomes. Monetary donations appreciated but not required, or bring a snack to share or stay & help clean up! This event is not run by any organization.

Hi Folks!

Hot Lava Mamas Gig

I’ve organized this gig & the stage’ll be filled with fun performers!

Hope you can make it!  Ages 19+

Here’s the lineup for the evening:

6:30: Naomi Edelman, featuring duets with Natali Freed

7:00: Natali Freed, featuring duets with: Ethan Mackler, Kisnel Personel, Dave Konya

7:45: Deb Picard, featuring Natali Freed, Aparna Das & Seth Heidkamp

8:30-9:30pm THE HOT LAVA MAMAS: Natali Freed (vocals/violin), Deb Picard (vocals/guitar), Brendan Gibson (guitar), Nargis Khestoo (rap), Ethan Mackler (bass), and Naomi Edelman (Background vocals/percussion/guitar)!

(We’ll sadly be missing Zack Niman at this gig!)

Together, we’re a little bit funky, a little bit folky, slightly rock-y, and definitely a fun bunch to listen to and watch! Most of the HLM songs are originals by Natali & Deb (and one by Naomi, as well!).

You may want to get up & dance, or relax & reflect… In any case, we hope to make your night, and you’ll make ours if you come! ;-D

$3.00 suggested donation.

All Asia is located near the Central Square T stop on the red line and also on the #1 bus route. Parking along Mass Ave., in area lots or in the Green Street Parking Garage.
