Gesa Power House Theatre presents a free performance of Songs of the Nearly Forgotten on Sunday, October 24 at 5 p.m. This Patio Pulse event will take place outdoors, weather permitting.
Songs of the Nearly Forgotten is a one-woman story and song show in which storyteller Katie Anne Mitchell explores themes of isolation, femininity and finding your place in this world through conducting a séance. That’s right. A séance.
Through writing, through performance, and through songs Mitchell shares slice-of-life stories that are simply and heartbreakingly human. Her most recent release Alice’s Land draws from folk, alternative, country, and spoken word roots to share small moments in the lives of five women. Five different women who have forgotten themselves, or forgotten what exists around them, or have been forgotten by the world. More than forgetting, though, this performance is about remembrance. These are the stories that drive that trusty old train from victim to creator, choo-chooing at every stop in between.
This event is part of a new Patio Pulse series, which is all about enjoying local and regional talent in a safe outdoor setting appropriate for all ages. Folding chairs will be provided, but patrons are welcome to bring their own chairs. The street will be closed to vehicle traffic. Concessions will be available for purchase.
Songs of the Nearly Forgotten was previously scheduled as part of the canceled 2021 Summer Stage Festival in August. The Summer Stage Festival will re-launch in August 2022!
