Sacred Sites Audio Theater Launch Party!
Susan Suntree, author of “Sacred Sites: The Secret History of Southern California,” is inviting the public to the launch of Sacred Sites Audio Theater via Zoom on Saturday, March 6, at 5p.m. PST! “The team has worked for a year, with support from so many,” Suntree writes, “to create what we feel is an audio performance that speaks to the heart of the current climate and social crises that summon us to live in balance with all beings.” As Pulitzer Prize winning poet, Gary Snyder writes in his foreword (read by Peter Coyote), “this book brings us home.” Join the celebration, sponsored by 18th Street Art Center. It promises to be a joyful show! Meet the cast and crew, hear clips from the book, experience Sacred Sites presented in the oral tradition which is its source. Though there is much left to do to bring this work fully into the world, now is the time to stir up a party! To register: https://us02web. z oom.u s/.../reg.../WN_ jfvznkHpRUysh-jLwffbHA Join 18th Street Arts Center artist in residence Susan Suntree for an online launch party of Suntree’s Sacred Sites Audio Theater Project on March 6, 2021. This is an audio production of Suntree’s best-selling, award winning book Sacred Sites: “The Secret History of Southern California” (Univ. of Nebraska Press). Audio clips from the Theater Project will be presented, including an audio-visual portrait of the Los Angeles River and the Ballona Wetlands read by Susan Suntree; and an audio clip from Book Two (“Indigenous Myths and Songs”) read by actor, Kalani Queypo. The following discussion and Q&A will focus on the process of creating the Audio Theater project, including a panel with Tom Keegan (Director), Tom Zehnder (Composer), and Gopika Sharma (Producer). A history that is equal parts science and mythology, Sacred Sites offers a rare and poetic vision of a world composed of dynamic natural forces and mythic characters. The result is a singular and memorable account of the evolution of the Southern California landscape, reflecting the riches of both Native knowledge and Western scientific thought. It is the winner of the Southern California Independent Booksellers Association Award and winner of the PEN Oakland–Josephine Miles Literary Award. “Sacred Sites honors the power and beauty of our indigenous heritage and homeland. By knowing our history, we better understand the present and our journey into the future.” —Anthony Morales, tribal chair, Gabrielino Tongva Council of San Gabriel.
