Filmjam is Friday

Old Town artist in residence Allison Warden arrives in Homer this Friday and will join Filmjam with multimedia artists Michael Walsh and Kayla Spaan. Described as “a bold and quirky cut-and-paste pastiche,” the event starts at 9 p.m. 

Warden, also known as Aku-Matu, is an Iñupiaq interdisciplinary and performance artist, and will be in residence through March. During her visit she will develop an interactive play called “Let Glow” in which the audience is transformed into a herd of caribou that migrate into an Alaska Native village community hall and learn about love, friendly competition, connection between communities and glow from being a caribou that cares and participates. Homer residents will be part of the building of the piece as they are invited at different parts of the residency to engage and provide caring caribou feedback.

At 6 p.m. March 16, she is the guest of honor for a Curious Caribou Potluck. Bring a dish to share and welcome her and listen to her artist talk. She will explain what she has planned for her March residency. Learn about what interdisciplinary art really means and how her process works behind the scenes. 

Warden holds Interactive Theatre Workshops at 5 p.m. March 17-21. The Let Glow performance is 8 p.m. March 28 at Bunnell, with a $10-$20 suggested donation.
