Community Events, September 2014
There will be several opportunities for arts and entertainment on Vashon this weekend.
Imagine watching the Royal Shakespeare Company perform the Bard’s high-spirited romantic comedy “The Two Gentelmen of Verona” in Shakespeare’s hometown of Stratford-upon-Avon. How about seeing Benedict Cumberbatch play Frankenstein at London’s National Theatre or the Bolshoi Ballet — the world’s oldest dance company — execute its classical repertoires. Now picture viewing these stellar international shows without leaving the island. That’s the idea behind Vashon Theatre’s lastest cinematic series of live, world-class performances rebroadcast on Vashon’s silver screen.
Contemporary Northwest native artist Shaun Peterson is slated to give a free presentation about Coast Salish art and culture for the Vashon-Maury Island Heritage Association’s (VMIHA) ongoing exhibition about Vashon natives, at 3 p.m. Saturday, at the Penny Farcy Center next to the museum.
On a windy knoll behind a prehistoric walled settlement in beguiling and enigmatic West Penwith, England, an American archeology team makes an unnerving discovery. Beneath a Stone Age burial quoit, at the site of an Iron Age village, a single, skeletal finger sticks up out of the soil.
