Dovie Thomason deconstructs history with epic storytelling
Internationally-acclaimed storyteller and activist Dovie Thomason comes to Open Eye this week for only four performances of the American premiere of her powerful show, HOW THE WILD WEST WAS SPUN.
“I believe there’s a hunger for stories today that talk about difficult or unspoken things. These stories that were driven by veiled agenda and manufactured as ‘history’ lack relation and connection. We don’t need manipulative one-dimensional tales. We deserve better stories. I’m seeking new plantings of the old seeds that can fulfill the deep hunger in us all.” —Dovie Thomason
In her insightful, wise and unsparing performance, Thomason brings 50 years of historical research as an Indigenous storyteller to subvert the phenomenon of Buffalo Bill Cody’s 1880s traveling pageant “The Wild West: A History Lesson,” which depicted Indians, buffalo, horses, cowboys, cavalry and publicists seeking a “New World to conquer.”
“Powerful. Raw. Unsettling. A multi-layered tour de force.”
—Peter Chand, Artistic Director, Festival at the Edge

Social Emotional Health motivates individuals to learn critical skills such as connect with others, resolve conflict, self-regulate, display kindness and empathy and cope with challenges.

Chess and other games played with others, especially people that are different from us provide great ways of learning from each other, challenging ourselves and building new relationships.

The Game of Chess for life is a kind of Chess, in which we have often points to gain, and competitors or adversaries to contend with.

Benefits of chess-increases your IQ, improves your problem solving skills, keeps your brain healthy, improves your memory, fosters creativity and helps you focus and maintain concentration.

Come play, come learn, come socialize. Drinks and snacks will be available for purchase! For more information: tommy or 612-600-1053.

Moon Palace Books

Books & Bars-Discussion of Climate Justice by Mary Robinson Tuesday, January 14, 7:00 to 8:30 pm, 3032 Minnehaha Ave S.

Holding her first grandchild in her arms in 2003, Mary Robinson was struck by the uncertainty of the world he had been born into. Before his fiftieth birthday, he would share the planet with more than nine billion people–people battling for food, water, and shelter in an increasingly volatile climate. The faceless, shadowy menace of climate change had become, in an instant, deeply personal.

Mary Robinson’s mission would lead her all over the world, from Malawi to Mongolia, and to a heartening revelation: that an irrepressible driving force in the battle for climate justice could be found at the grassroots level, mainly among women, many of them mothers and grandmothers like herself. From Sharon Hanshaw, the Mississippi matriarch whose campaign began in her East Biloxi hair salon and culminated in her speaking at the United Nations, to Constance Okollet, a small farmer who transformed the fortunes of her ailing community in rural Uganda, Robinson met with ordinary people whose resilience and ingenuity had already unlocked extraordinary change.

In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre

Puppet Cabaret: Brave the Cold Anyway Saturday, January 18, 7:30 to 10:00 pm, 1500 Lake St E.

***With ASL interpretation***

With the cooler temps and darker days, HOBT’s January Puppet Cabaret explores the winter seasonal shift. Like the caterpillar enters its cocoon, our instinct as the weather cools is to turn inward. We wrap ourselves with warmth, comfort, and avoidance of evening social events at all costs.

Experience an evening of new works that explores that inward instinct, with the brilliant effervescence of puppetry that inspires us to brave the cold anyway. Make your way over to HOBT and warm-up with waffles, live music, and community.

Hosted by Akiko and The Woppits (Theresa Linnehan, Caitie Ryan-Norton, Alexandra Young, Laura Korynta)

Performances include:
Dolores by Katie Kaufmann
Little Flower by Renae Bonde
Clutter Forest by Thomas Boguszewski
Bike vs. Blanket Monster by Helena Howard

County board adopts 2020 budget

On Thursday, the Hennepin County Board approved a 2020 budget of $2.5 billion. The budget includes an $869 million net property tax levy, a 4.75% increase from 2019.

The budget focuses on reducing disparities that impact many residents in the areas of education, employment, health, housing, income, justice and transportation.

“The county’s 2020 budget reflects significant investment in the diverse needs and aspirations of our residents,” said County Board Chair Marion Greene. “I’m proud that Hennepin County’s efforts to reduce disparities are woven throughout.”

In addition to investments in public safety and transit, examples of some key budget drivers include:

  • Child well-being – continuing to transform the child welfare system to a child well-being model
  • County workforce – recruitment and retention of diverse county employees
  • Elections – preparing for the 2020 presidential election and addressing election security
  • Census 2020 – establishing the Complete Count Committee 2020 to maximize the number of county residents surveyed in the 2020 census
  • Service centers – meeting increased demand and providing better customer and employee experience
  • Affordable housing – establishing unprecedented funding for affordable housing and continuing investment strategies that spur the creation and preservation of affordable housing
  • Sustainable future – completing a carbon emissions inventory study that will empower the county to act on reducing our carbon footprint

“The board appreciates the robust level of community engagement that informs our work every day; we are building a Hennepin County where people and communities thrive,” said Greene.

More about the budget process

Budget adoption follows more than six months of budget preparation and hearings.

Commissioners amended the proposed 2020 budget on November 26. View a video of the November 26 budget hearing.

Lucifer is despondent — mankind has become so base and vile that he has nothing to do. Daring to visit the Godhead, he pleads for the ‘one on high’ to do something about the situation so he can do his best work. A delightful and original retelling of the 15th century Medieval Mystery Plays and the Second Shepherds’ Play, the stage fills with angels and devils, Mary and Joseph, the shepherds, and Fluffsie the lamb. Accompanied by a joyful community chorus and Open Eye’s house band!
Watch a preview of THE HOLIDAY PAGEANT! Video footage from our 2010 production.
