Tiptons Sax Quartet
in a multi-media theater event with live music
Tickets $18 general & $15 member

Mythunderstandings is a live music and multi-media theater piece that explores the common threads of our individual experiences and the myths we tell ourselves and each other to make sense of them. How do people deal with Fate, Superstition, Love, Death and other facets of the Human Experience?

The heart of this audio/visual feast is centered around personal stories recorded from a diverse range of people including a hoarder, a refugee, an adoptee, a bank teller, several grandmothers, and a northwest Salish tribe member, whose tales are woven together into a provocative tapestry presented with humor and pathos.

This collaborative performance features an award-winning creative team: film maker Adam Sekuler and director Lisa Halpern, and the Tiptons Sax Quartet collaborating with Coastal Salish story-teller/musician Paul 'Che oke ten' Wagner.

The Tiptons Sax Quartet:
Amy Denio: alto sax, clarinet, accordion, voice
Jessica Lurie: alto & tenor sax, accordion, voice
Sue Orfield: tenor sax, piano, voice
Tobi Stone: baritone sax, voice
Tarik Abouzied: drums and percussion
Paul 'Che oke ten' Wagner: tribal drum, cedar flutes, voice, stories

This project was developed with support in part by 4Culture,  Sponsored by Wildberries Marketplace
