Outpost: words & music
January 11 @ 8:00 pm$15 – $20
Outpost is a 21st century variety show blending chamber music by living composers with spoken word performances by poets, actors, authors, comedians, journalists, and more. There is no theme to our shows, unless you perceive one, in which case that’s the theme and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
Celebrated Hmong-American author Kao Kalia Yang anchors our winter program, reading from her MN Book Award-winning memoir, The Song Poet. Joining her on the Outpost stage will be journalist David Perry and Dakota author/poet/activist Rosetta Peters, as well as an array of Minnesota’s finest musicians performing works by five outstanding American composers: Karim al-Zand, Gabriela Lena Frank, Kimberly Osberg, LJ White, and Judd Greenstein.
Outpost is curated and produced by Sam Bergman and Carrie Henneman Shaw.
