Blonde Poison

Sunday, Feb 24, 2019 from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM - English

An Extraordinary True Story of a Life in Nazi Germany.

Primal Forces is proud to present Blonde Poison, based on the true story of Stella Kubler who, in present day London, reflects on her harrowing days as a young Jewish girl in Nazi Germany. The stunning play by Gail Louw is directed by Keith Garsson, and stars four-time Carbonell Award-winner Lourelene Snedeker.

Show more >>

"Lourelene is a phenomenally gifted actor who brings a deeply conflicted and complex character to life," said director Keith Garsson. "As the audience learns about Stella's past, will they see her as a victim or were her misdeeds as monstrous as those who imprisoned her?"

Decades after the war, Stella agrees to be interviewed by her childhood friend Peter Wyden, who had a schoolyard crush on her in his youth and is now a prominent journalist. This reunion may be her last chance for redemption. Can she ever be released from her past? Louw's powerful play examines the motivation of an ordinary person who makes extraordinary choices. Winner of an Argus Angel Award for artistic excellence at the Brighton Festival and Fringe 2012, named Highly Recommended at the Camden Fringe 2013 and Best of San Francisco Fringe 2016, the play is a compelling and artful exploration of the darkest corners of a human heart.

An actor with a body of work that spans almost 50 years, Lourelene Snedeker began as a child actor with the Charlotte Opera Association. Nominated in South Florida for over 21 Carbonell Awards (she's won four), some of her nods have included Hayfever (Hollywood Boulevard Theatre),Heartbeats (Actors Playhouse/Caldwell), Cabaret Verboten (Florida Stage/Arts Garage), Steel Pier & Floyd Collins (both Actors Playhouse) and Phantom (Jupiter Theatre). Her wins came for On Your Toes (Royal Palm Dinner Theatre), Beauty and the Beast and White Christmas (both Actors Playhouse) and Sound of Music (Wick Theatre). She has also garnered Best Actress nominations with a Lillie Stoats Award nod for Meet Me in St. Louis (Mark II) and a Cincinnati Entertainment nomination for Rabbit Hole (Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati). In recognition of over 30 years of artistic association, Lourelene was given the Seaside Music Theatre's Lifetime Achievement Award.

Every Brilliant Thing

Sunday, Feb 24, 2019 at 3:00 PM - English

This exhilarating play strikes a delicate balance between sobering loss and cathartic laughter. In this one-person tour de force, a man attempts to cure his mother’s depression by creating a list of the best things in the world. The list grows as he progresses from childhood (“Ice Cream”) and adolescence (“Star Trek”), to college (“Surprises”) and marriage (“Falling in Love”). But when life deals a bitter blow, the list proves to be helpful to the son in ways that it could never be for the mother.

Paolo Pivi: Art with a View

Sunday, Feb 24, 2019 various times - English

Paola Pivi's artistic practice is diverse and enigmatic. Her oeuvre appears to have been formed through multiple creative minds. Art with a view at The Bass presents new work by the artist, as well as Pivi's anthropomorphic, feather-covered polar bears; canvases of cascading pearls; video showing fish in flight on a passenger jet; and an 80-piece mattress installation. Each piece poses questions and is defined by its openness to interpretation, through the appropriation of cultural symbols.

A Celebration of Contemporary Graphic Artworks by International Women Artists.

The Pompano Beach Cultural Center is delighted to announce their newest exhibition, “Engraved”. This collaboration with The Buenos Aires Editing Center in Argentina and the Latin American Art Pavilion Project (LAAP) celebrates the work and artistic development of women in the visual arts field.

The exhibition runs January 11-April 5, 2019 and is free and open to the public.

“We kick-off our celebration of International Women’s Month a little early in order to provide ample time to showcase this important exhibition,” said Phyllis Korab, Director of the Pompano Beach Cultural Affairs Department. “We are honored to once again be partnering with Maria Napoles of the Latin American Art Pavilion (LAAP) on another outstanding project, and we are delighted that Maria has introduced us to Professor Natalia Giacchetta and the impressive works of these talented female artists.”

“Engraved” features artists from different regions of the world who develop their artistic work through techniques such as lithography (printing or calcareous stone), printmaking (engraving in metal or wood), digital drawing and graphics, using mostly paper as a noble support of the representative depth of the images. The artworks will be exhibited following diverse techniques that highlight their individuality: with frames, without frames, as installations, and within showcases generating a climate of strength and subtleties. This demonstrates the virtues and characteristics of each individual work but, as a whole provides the viewer with an intense and harmonious journey into the world of each of these artists.
