Tasveer is proud to present the 9th Aaina, a South Asian Women's festival at the Seattle Asian Art Museum, April 25 – 27, 2014. One of the highlights and very successful features of Aaina is Yoni Ki Baat, a South Asian adaptation of The Vagina Monologues. Yoni Ki Baat (YKB) is a collection of frank, authentic, bold, and powerful stories that are sourced, written, and narrated by local South Asian women. Yoni Ki Baat 2014 is co-directed by Alpa Dave and Rumela Ganguly. Together they are leading 12 women through a creative process that spans half a year to craft their stories and get ready for the stage. For nine years, YKB has sparked dialogue about shame, sex, abuse, identity and love. Initially it pushed the boundaries of the local South Asian community, many of whom shy away from addressing these issues. Now, nearly a decade later, it’s a celebrated event that sells out every year. This year’s guest of honor is newly-elected council member Kshama Sawant, who will attend the Saturday night perfor… Category: Arts & Entertainment. Family. Theater. Audience: Teens.

Aaina - South Asian Women's Festival 2014

Tasveer is proud to present the 9th Aaina, a South Asian Women's festival at the Seattle Asian Art Museum, April 25 – 27, 2014. One of the highlights and very successful features of Aaina is Yoni Ki Baat, a South Asian adaptation of The Vagina Monologues. Yoni Ki Baat (YKB) is a collection of frank, authentic, bold, and powerful stories that are sourced, written, and narrated by local South Asian women. Yoni Ki Baat 2014 is co-directed by Alpa Dave and Rumela Ganguly. Together they are leading 12 women through a creative process that spans half a year to craft their stories and get ready for the stage. For nine years, YKB has sparked dialogue about shame, sex, abuse, identity and love. Initially it pushed the boundaries of the local South Asian community, many of whom shy away from addressing these issues. Now, nearly a decade later, it’s a celebrated event that sells out every year. This year’s guest of honor is newly-elected council member Kshama Sawant, who will attend the Saturday night perfor… Category: Arts & Entertainment. Family. Theater. Audience: Teens.

SIS Productions presents IMPENETRABLE

Inspired by true events, Impenetrable, a play by Mia McCullough, explores society's obsession with beauty in a deeply compelling and funny way. In 2007, a billboard image of a gorgeous, bikini-clad young woman appears superimposed with arrows pointing to "problem areas" that a local spa can fix. Even an ideal woman, the ad proclaims, can benefit from physical improvement. The community boycotts, but who is the outrage against? The spa owner, for tapping into women's fears? Or an entire society that values women for their looks more than their personal achievements? This smart and revealing play delves into the impossible expectations of female beauty, especially the ones women (and men) place on themselves. Category: Arts & Entertainment. Theater. Audience: Teens. Singles. College Students. Dads. Moms. Seniors. Families. Cost: $6 to $16. Contact Name: Kathy Hsieh. Contact Email: tickets@sis-productions.org. Contact Phone: 206-323-9443.

Aaina - South Asian Women's Festival 2014

Tasveer is proud to present the 9th Aaina, a South Asian Women's festival at the Seattle Asian Art Museum, April 25 – 27, 2014. One of the highlights and very successful features of Aaina is Yoni Ki Baat, a South Asian adaptation of The Vagina Monologues. Yoni Ki Baat (YKB) is a collection of frank, authentic, bold, and powerful stories that are sourced, written, and narrated by local South Asian women. Yoni Ki Baat 2014 is co-directed by Alpa Dave and Rumela Ganguly. Together they are leading 12 women through a creative process that spans half a year to craft their stories and get ready for the stage. For nine years, YKB has sparked dialogue about shame, sex, abuse, identity and love. Initially it pushed the boundaries of the local South Asian community, many of whom shy away from addressing these issues. Now, nearly a decade later, it’s a celebrated event that sells out every year. This year’s guest of honor is newly-elected council member Kshama Sawant, who will attend the Saturday night perfor… Category: Arts & Entertainment. Family. Theater. Audience: Teens.

The Art of the Jitterbug

Attention hep cats! Big band jazz grew up in the nightclubs and dance halls of New York and Chicago as high-energy dance music.

This concert features the hottest hits from the world's greatest dance bands--Chick Webb, Tommy Dorsey, Jimmie Lunceford, Fletcher Henderson, and Benny Goodman. Two award-winning pairs of dancers will kick up their heels on stage alongside SRJO to showcase the jitterbug and other swingin' dance styles of early jazz (such as the Lindy Hop, East Coast Swing and the Balboa).

SIS Productions presents IMPENETRABLE

Inspired by true events, Impenetrable, a play by Mia McCullough, explores society's obsession with beauty in a deeply compelling and funny way. In 2007, a billboard image of a gorgeous, bikini-clad young woman appears superimposed with arrows pointing to "problem areas" that a local spa can fix. Even an ideal woman, the ad proclaims, can benefit from physical improvement. The community boycotts, but who is the outrage against? The spa owner, for tapping into women's fears? Or an entire society that values women for their looks more than their personal achievements? This smart and revealing play delves into the impossible expectations of female beauty, especially the ones women (and men) place on themselves. Category: Arts & Entertainment. Theater. Audience: Teens. Singles. College Students. Dads. Moms. Seniors. Families. Cost: $6 to $16. Contact Name: Kathy Hsieh. Contact Email: tickets@sis-productions.org. Contact Phone: 206-323-9443.
