Rundown Charleston-area stretch of I-26 to be resurfaced beginning in June
CCPRC events are looking to become more inclusive for those with sensory disabilities Keen Eye Marketing/courtesy CCPRC
Charleston parks and programs are getting more accessible
By Skyler Baldwin
Community leaders in the Charleston area are looking to increase inclusivity at their outdoor events and spaces to disabled children and adults and people with other conditions that make it challenging to enjoy environments like parks, playgrounds, concerts or parties. The Charleston County Parks and Recreation Commission (CCPRC) has partnered with KultureCity, a national nonprofit that specializes in inclusion for those with sensory disabilities. National studies estimate that one in every six children in the U.S. have sensory disabilities. Those in need of additional sensory accommodations gather information from the senses differently, impacting their experiences in a variety of ways. “Our partnership is really a part of a recent increase in accessibility, inclusion and access to all of our parks and programs,” said Ashley Hoover, the county’s recreation administrative manager. “Our hope is that as we go forward, we will be able to make more events sensory inclusive.” At the moment, the county has a number of inclusive events on its calendar, including swim nights, virtual yoga events and dance
parties. Guests of inclusive events can drop by a booth or tent to check out sensory bags or get help locating a quiet zone to get away from potentially overstimulating noise. “We’ve received a lot of interaction with the public on-site,” Hoover said. “It’s been an opportunity to educate the public on what we’re doing, but we just want to increase our efforts and improve access to all members Hoover of the community.” Hoover said the initiative is important not just for Charleston residents, but also tourists who visit the Lowcountry. “It’s important to us that we are able to welcome guests of all abilities and that our guests can enjoy equitable experiences at all of our events,” Hoover said. “This is an important first step. We are planning to offer KultureCity at larger events, like our Latin American festival in October alongside as we welcome back more guests, so that more people can enjoy this experience at our events.”
The North Charleston Parks and Recreation Department is also working to make city parks and events more inclusive, starting by making sure new parks are designed with an accessibility component to them. “We recognize that the majority of the parks and playgrounds in the region are not inclusive for children with what we call ‘exceptionalities,’” said Adam MacConnell, a project manager with the City of North Charleston. “A lot of our parks are just older, and we’ve been maintaining them, and with the Americans with Disabilities Act, that means we need to meet certain standards.” MacConnell said it isn’t just about meeting requirements, though, and that North Charleston works with many people with “exceptionalities,” whether that be those with disabilities or other conditions, and making events and areas more accessible to them has become a sort of passion project. One of the first undertakings of this plan is an inclusive park in the Park Circle neighborhood, a site MacConnell could become CONTINUED ON PAGE 6
A “deteriorating” 11-mile stretch of Interstate 26 beginning roughly a mile east of Ashley Phosphate Road to just west of U.S. Highway 17 will be resurfaced by the state Department of Transportation. Most of the work will be done after dark in hopes of causing few disruptions. Initial work is expected to start next month. The bulk of the work will be done between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. Sundays to Thursdays, according to a DOT notice issued last week, in order to avoid the commonly heavy morning traffic. Both single-lane and multi-lane closures will be necessary during the project. A start date has not yet been determined, but initial patchwork will begin June 1 and the project is scheduled to be completed in October. After the patchwork is complete, resurfacing will begin on entrance and exit ramps, followed by the main corridor. —Skyler Baldwin

Amy Sutherland demanded justice for her son during a small rally last Wednesday, calling for murder charges for the deputies involved
Family demands charges in jail death The Sutherland family, joined by Black Lives Matter and the Racial Justice Network (RJN) organizers, held a small rally outside Solicitor Scarlett Wilson’s office May 26 afternoon, calling for justice in the death of Jamal Sutherland, a Black man struggling with mental illness who died in police custody in Al Cannon Detention Center in January. “There are people who should have been accountable from the day my son was murdered,” said Jamal’s mother Amy Sutherland. “We should not be wondering what we’re going to charge them with, we should be wondering when we’re going to charge them. “They should have been the charged the day he died,” she said. Two deputies directly involved with Jamal Sutherland’s death were fired since the video footage was released May 13, but remained on desk duty after a brief leave following the incident four months ago. Amy Sutherland maintains her son’s death should be considered a murder and that
justice would only prevail if the six officers present are charged as such. “I’m ex-military; he was treated like a P.O.W.,” Amy Sutherland said. “Now that you’ve treated him that way, I ask that we, as a country, punish those that killed my baby.” Jamal Sutherland died Jan. 5, shortly after deputies attempted to forcibly remove him from his holding cell for a bond hearing on assault charges stemming from an incident at hospital where he was seeking treatment for mental illness. Body camera footage shows Sutherland being pepper sprayed and shocked with a Taser and stun guns before becoming unresponsive while deputies restrained him. Wednesday’s event came one day after Charleston County Council agreed to a $10 million settlement with the Sutherland family. Amy Sutherland said she was grateful, but said it felt like she traded the memory of her son for monetary gain. CONTINUED ON PAGE 6
An inmate on South Carolina’s death row since 2002 who is suing the state over a new death penalty law has been issued an execution notice from the S.C. Supreme Court. The execution should be carried out on June 18. “By law, the execution date is set four Fridays after the execution order is received,” said Chrysti Shain, director of communications for the state Department of Corrections spokesman said May 28. Earlier this month, Gov. Henry McMaster signed into law a measure that set the electric chair as the default mode of execution for those on death row, although inmates can choose death by firing squad. At present, only electrocution is available as the state is developing the policies and procedures to create a firing squad, Shain said, adding, “This is a very serious thing, and we want to make sure we are doing it properly and constitutionally.” The new law unlocked stalled executions because in the earlier law, death row inmates had to pick between electrocution and lethal injection. But because the lethal injection drugs are not available and inmates chose that alternative, executions ground to a halt for a decade. The new measure sets electrocution as the default, with the firing squad as the alternative. On Thursday, the high court issued the execution notice, the first since 2011, that directed the S.C. Department of Corrections to execute 63-year-old Brad Sigmon, who was found guilty in 2002 of killing two people in Greenville County. Sigmon’s attorneys are challenging the new law by saying it wasn’t in place when he was convicted, and the old law had lethal injection as the default execution method. —Andy Brack
ACLU of SC launches police-recording app The American Civil Liberties Union of South Carolina released the free Mobile Justice app Tuesday that allows users to record encounters with public officials and law enforcement and report authorities’ abuse of power during these encounters and others. “It’s frustrating that community members have to feel like they need this tool on them, but the reality is that police commit real acts of violence,” said Frank Knaack, executive director of the ACLU of S.C. “This is a tool that the community can use to hold police accountable for that violence.” While any bystander can press the record button on their camera phone, police have
opportunities to delete footage that may show them in a negative light when recorded by victims of police brutality, Knaack said. That’s why Mobile Justice does more. When users press “record”, the app directly streams the footage to the ACLU, rending police incapable of erasing any footage. And, users can set their account up to stream the footage to select friends and family as well. It also allows users to input additional information, such as location, names of those involved, officers’ badge numbers and more. While body cams worn by police have grown in use, police choose when to turn
their cameras on, according to a statement by the ACLU of S.C. Mobile Justice puts that power in the hands of the community, but even with that, Knaack said this app alone won’t end police violence. “One thing we are being really careful to note is that this app isn’t going to bring about justice,” he said. “It can’t reverse the police brutality that has already happened or will happen in the future, but it provides community members with a little bit more empowerment to assert their rights.” The free Mobile Justice app is available for download at the App Store and Google Play. —Skyler Baldwin
B of the lotter Week
Police received reports from a bus driver saying a passenger was making “threatening gestures,” including finger-guns, the middle finger, and “pulling up his shirt and rubbing his tits.” All aboard! RUNNERS UP A routine traffic stop ended with a young driver breaking down in tears because she was “going to go to jail.” A quick search revealed what she was guilty of possession of less than a gram of marijuana. She was given a warning and did not, in fact, go to jail. An officer asked the driver of a van if he normally smoked weed in the vehicle after catching a whiff of burnt marijuana. The driver reportedly responded, “Totally,” as someone who normally smokes weed in a van would. A woman caught sipping a drink in a paper bag on a downtown sidewalk began to scream profanities at officers, who put her in a police cruiser and relocated her elsewhere, presumably so she could yell obscenities where fewer tourists can hear.

a case study for what’s possible. A big part of that is making sure inclusion isn’t just focused on kids in playgrounds. “It’s not only accessible for children, but for the parents as well,” he said. “If you have a parent or grandparent who may be in a wheelchair, there may be opportunities for them to enjoy a park or an outdoor event, or maybe they can help the children navigate the area themselves.” The Park Circle site, located at the park in the area’s namesake roundabout, was one of eight recently selected as a National Demonstration Site by PlayCore’s Center for Outreach, Research and Education. The selection comes with research and data collection aid as well as grant funding for up to 50% of the playground structure cost, currently estimated at $70,000 in grant funding.

CCPRC offers a station with headphones, fidget toys and other tools to aid those with disabilities at events “We thought we had enough money for this, but because Park Circle itself isn’t really accessible — you can’t roll a wheelchair over the gravel — what we thought
was a small project became something much more substantial,” MacConnell said. “It really requires updating major facilities, plumbing, sewer, stormwater, electrical and on and on. “The public doesn’t typically care about all that background stuff, but if it wasn’t there, we’d certainly hear about it,” he said. “It just takes more time and money than people realize, especially when you’re dealing with older sites.” MacConnell said the team hopes to have a full design within the next year, and estimates the park would be completely done in no more than three years. In the meantime, programs and smaller events are being planned by multiple organizations throughout the Lowcountry with accessibility and inclusion in mind. Visit the CCPRC and the City of North Charleston event calendars for more information on upcoming events.

Representatives from the RJN reiterated the Sutherland’s families demands, and further stated that the trust in the justice system of Charleston had been broken, and the transparency promised by the county’s law enforcement system has been nowhere to be found. “I’m sending a message to Wilson: We want a conviction,” said RJN president James Johnson. “Enough is enough. You promised transparency … and you’ve let the people down.” Wilson said on May 11 she expects to have information needed to determine whether charges will be brought by the end of June. Charleston County Council Chairman Teddie Pryor said the settlement could set the stage for change. —Skyler Baldwin

poleto Festival USA and the Piccolo Spoleto Festival land in Charleston at a fortuitous time for a local arts community sent reeling by the pandemic year. Not only are the programs and exhibitions a welcome change of pace for 17 days, but they’re also a reminder of the wealth of creativity and artistry around us year-round. It’s probably been more than a year since you stepped into a theater or into a crowded gallery. From the glitzy Gaillard to your neighborhood dive bar, crowds were kept away from the city’s traditional hubs for performance art and culture. Sprung from those shutdowns, we experienced some of our favorite local artists and musicians in the only ways we could. Streams, social-distanced shows and pay-what-you-will downloads scratched that itch for a while, but after almost a year of distance, many of us feel a void without these cultural touchstones. But as we’re able to reconnect over top-billed shows like Spoleto Festival USA’s The Woman in Black or Piccolo Spoleto’s juried art exhibition at the City Gallery, signs are pointing toward the local arts scene picking up where it left off in early 2020. As contributing arts editor Michael Smallwood wrote in his opening week Spoleto preview:
“This eagerness on the part of audiences to return to Spoleto speaks incredibly well for the future of performing arts in Charleston. Had audiences decided to stay away, it could have signaled anxiety about the upcoming fall and beyond for the performing arts. Spoleto Festival USA will be the first big test for ticketed events this year. So far, things are looking good.” But we can’t let momentum dwindle after the festivals leave.
Supporting and encouraging public creativity is critical to illuminate and celebrate the culturally diverse, shared experience of living in the Lowcountry. In every corner of Charleston, independent producers will keep creating and performing in 2021. Downtown, Redux Contemporary Art Center wants to introduce you to local artists, while Charleston Stage, Threshold Rep, Footlight Players and PURE Theatre prep upcoming shows. In North Charleston, Nameless Numberhead continues its residency at South of Broadway Theatre, right around the corner from the North Charleston City Gallery. Farther north, the Flowertown Players continue to delight with community theater, while the Public Works Art Center showcases creativity in downtown Summerville. Local musicians are setting stages for a big comeback for live shows in the coming weeks as well. Coming off successful pod-style shows at The Bend and Firefly Distillery, Charleston Pour House has also been hosting intimate outdoor concerts, as Charleston Music Hall, The Royal American and others ease back into live performances indoors. And, there’s even more to come. Through the years, Charleston Mayors Joe Riley and John Tecklenburg have celebrated the opening of Spoleto Festival USA at City Hall: “Let the music begin, the dancers dance, the choirs sing and the children play — the banners fly and the confetti fall.” A welcome return, indeed.

Some 3-4% of Americans are immunocompromised. I know this because I am one of them. Someone you know may also be one. For any number of reasons — autoimmune disease, cancer, organ transplantation — our immune systems have been compromised, and a percentage of us are unable to produce antibodies to fight the coronavirus. This is true even after receiving vaccination. I knew my immune system would have difficulty producing antibodies, but I was still unprepared when, a few weeks after my second dose of vaccine, I received a negative antibody test. The test showed that my body is unable to recognize the telltale spike proteins of the coronavirus. Put another way: I am as vulnerable as ever. With my underlying conditions, if I get sick, I will honestly be fighting for my life. Again, I am not alone. Millions of others are in the same predicament. My worry is that they may not know it.

After immunocompromised I posted about my own negative antibody test on are put at increased risk. social media, many people reached out to me. The first two calls I received were from friends who are immunocompromised and vaccinated, but did not know if they had developed antibodies. After testing, it turned out that neither friend had detectable antibodies. They were vulnerable and hadn’t known. To be clear, most people don’t need to worry about their antibodies. The vaccines are extremely effective in those with healthy immune systems. Yet it’s now more important than ever that we do what we can to protect ourselves. Just as others are loosening their standards, those who are immunocompromised are put at increased risk. You almost certainly know someone who is affected. Immunocompromised people aren’t the only ones currently at higher risk. The community of color has suffered disproportionately from the effects of COVID, an experience that continues as the pandemic wears on. According to the CDC, Black Americans are nearly three-times as likely to be hospitalized for COVID and nearly twice as likely to die from it as white Americans. The numbers are actually worse for Latinx and indigenous Americans. While some of us are compromised due to our pre-existing medical conditions, others remain vulnerable due to race or ethnicity in a country where systemic racial inequities have About the led to disparate health outcomes.

Spoleto director hopes successor pushes envelope
By Michael Smallwood
his year's Spoleto began with an opening gala, as it does every year. There were speeches and performances by prominent artists in the country and around the world. But, it was a little different. First, instead of City Hall or another outdoor space, the entire gala was virtual. And, in a completely unprecedented move, you can stream the entire gala (for free) until June 13. Second, instead of focusing on the festival itself, the entire event was about one man: Nigel Redden, the festival's inimitable general director who will retire this fall. Redden has been synonymous with Spoleto for 50 years. Getting his start at age 18, working for the Festival It seemed like it was of the Two Worlds in Spoleto, Italy, he took over as general manager of time for someone else to Spoleto Festival USA in 1986. As gentake over this platform. eral director, a post he took in 1995, his vision has shaped the festival we This wonderful, know today. He is responsible for programming, fundraising, administrawonderful pulpit where tion, marketing, community relations one can try so many — Redden's fingerprints can be found on all aspects of the event. different things.” Watching the gala, you can hear —Nigel Redden how much his touch has guided not just the festival as a whole, but the individuals he has worked with. The roughly 50-minute event is full of artists and colleagues showering praise and love on their beloved Nigel. Board president Alicia Gregory gave a report of his career and accomplishments. Composer Meredith Monk gave heartfelt thanks for his vision, guidance and love. Stephen Colbert and Evelyn McGee-Colbert invited him to a shrimp-and-grits dinner. Compagnia Marionettistica gifted him a custom marionette in his likeness, hilariously and coincidentally wearing his exact suit. You get the sense that Redden's biggest accomplishment during his tenure is a lifetime of incredible relationships.
Longtime Spoleto general director Nigel Redden will retire this fall “You’ve not only nurtured the audience and changed the audience there, but you’ve nurtured the artists. You’ve taught us all something in our time at Spoleto,” said Grammy Award nominee, Spoleto alum, and host of the gala Anthony Roth Costanzo. It was a sentiment that came up time and time again in speeches from Bill T. Jones, Michael Colgan, David Herskovits and Chen Shi-Zheng. Laurie Anderson shared anecdotes about her previous opera works while playing her musical compositions in front of an everchanging background. Ayodele Casel tap danced after thanking Redden for giving her a first Spoleto showcase with 2017’s While I Have the Floor. Rhiannon Giddens, co-composer and librettist for 2022’s highly anticipated opera, Omar, also spoke before playing “Omar’s Aria,” possibly a sneak peek into next year’s festival.
It was a lovely gala, and it meant the world to the man it celebrated. “I must say, I was very, very touched by what people had to say,” Redden said of the many artists who thanked him for giving them their career catapults. “It’s been one of the huge rewards of this job is that I have felt that we have given opportunities to a wide variety of artists.” It was a fitting opening salvo for a festival primed to feel more intimate. “I think he was very touched by it all,” said Gregory. “I think it really spoke to his heart to hear from the artists who have worked with him for so many years. And, to hear their remarks and their gratitude. I think it really resonated with him, and I think it was a very meaningful experience.” The gala's structure was meant to invoke one of the most impressive elements of Redden's tenure as director.

The Woman in Black invites you to step into the dark
By Matthew Nerber f you hear a loud scream coming from the Memminger Theater at Festival Hall later this month, don’t be alarmed. It’s probably just a ghost. Or maybe it’s the throngs of theatergoers menaced by a ghost — the titular spirit at the center of The Woman in Black, which opens during Spoleto May 28. The play, adapted by Stephen Mallatrat from the 1981 novel by Susan Hill, has a long history of inciting such screams. Originally directed by Robin Herford in 1987, The Woman in Black has been scaring British audiences for more than three decades and holds the record of the second-longest running show in London’s West End (the top spot goes to Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap). The Woman in Black tells the story of young solicitor Arthur Kipps who, while settling the creepy estate home of a recently deceased widow, encounters all the things one hopes not to see in a desolate, darkened manor: windows and doors that swing open or shut on their own, rocking chairs that squeak and creak under the weight of nothingness and, of course, the ghastly
woman herself, not too keen on uninvited visitors. The show is produced stateside by Tim Smith of Pemberley Productions, who has a personal history with The Woman in Black. He saw a production of the play in London when he was 17 and planning to join the Royal Air Force. But, Smith’s future was rerouted that night. He left the show knowing he wanted to work in the theater, and he has a theory as to why the show has remained so popular. “There's nothing like being scared in the theater,” Smith said. “And, it doesn't happen very often. There aren't very many things out there like that.” Smith also produced the touring production of The Woman in Black, which started its American tour in 2018. It was the first time the original staging was presented in the U.S., and the show was so successful — in cities like Chicago, Seattle and Cleveland — that Pemberley Productions mounted another version in New York City at the McKittrick Hotel. That New York show was a hit as well, delighting audiences and garnering a coveted “Critic’s Pick” from The New York Times, but the run was cut short

Syracuse journalism students join City Paper for coverage of 2021 Spoleto Festival USA Charleston City Paper is welcoming seven arts journalism graduate students who will join its team to amplify coverage during the 2021 Spoleto Festival USA. The aspiring arts journalists have traveled to Charleston as part of a capstone course with the Goldring Arts Journalism program at Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Communications. As part of their
coursework, they’ll contribute reviews, previews and other on-the-ground accounts of their time in the Holy City exclusively for Charleston City Paper. “We are delighted to be working with the City Paper to help with coverage of the annual Spoleto festival,” said Joel Kaplan, associate dean at the Newhouse School. The Goldring program trains art critics and writers with backgrounds in film, theater,
music, architecture and other art forms. “By the time they come to Charleston for their capstone experience, they are already professionals and ready to hit the ground running,” Kaplan said. The students joining the City Paper’s Spoleto coverage are Sarah Connor, Patrick Henkels, Emily Johnson, Cydney Lee, Matthew Nerber, Samantha Savery and Mackenzie Snell. —Staff
“One of the things that’s always impressed me … is this terrific range that Nigel has,” said Gregory. You work with so many different genres and collaborate with all of these different sorts of artists and then pull together a festival that’s cohesive and the various pieces resonate. I just think it’s really brilliant, as I’m sure everyone does, just how he’s been able to do that for so many years.” While a paired down, social-distanced, limited engagement and limitedseating festival was not necessarily the way Redden would have wanted to spend his final season as general director, he’s elated to be returning after being forced to take 2020 off. “The idea that we are going to have live performances. That’s what all of us involved in the festival really believe in. It’s very nice to have virtual performances, it’s nice to stream things and so on, but that’s not what we’re in this business for," he said. "We’re in this business because we believe there’s something very special about a person in front of you doing something that is —” he said, pausing, before finding words that feel fitting: “It becomes magic.” Redden, who turned 70 last year, admitted the loss of the 2020 festival was a contributing factor to his decision to step down. “It was very difficult for me that we weren’t able to do a festival in 2020. I work 52 weeks a year basically to make two weeks happen, and these two weeks didn’t happen,” he said. After that setback, he started considering stepping down. But, Redden acknowledged another meaningful reason that now is the time to pass the baton. “There’s been a lot of talk in the arts community about giving room for new voices. I have been at this job on and off for 36 years, which is a very very long time for anyone to be involved in, frankly, anything. Certainly to be running an arts organization that really does have significant impact on the cultural life, I would argue, of certainly the city and the state but also the country. It seemed like it was time for someone else to take over this platform. This wonderful, wonderful pulpit where one can try so many different things. Where we have an opportunity to give wonderful artists sometimes-careerchanging opportunities.” As Spoleto moves forward into a new chapter without him, Redden has specific hopes for his successor. “What I do hope, and I hope fervently, is that whoever it is takes risks—that whoever it is pushes the envelope, pushes hard to do perhaps more than is rationally feasible but is somehow intuitively feasible.”
wants to help you talk to a stranger
By Matthew Nerber
magine for a moment you’re on the phone with a complete stranger. What would you reveal about yourself? What would you learn about the other person? What could that conversation tell you about the nature of human connection? Those are the governing questions behind A Thousand Ways (Part One): A Phone Call, a play by way of a telephone conversation that will be presented virtually starting June 3 at this year’s Spoleto Festival USA. Conceived by Michael Silverstone and Abigail Browde, better known as the experimental theater duo 600 Highwaymen (whose boundary-melting The Fever played at Spoleto in 2019), Part One is the first of a planned triptych of theatrical events that aim to interrogate the notions of performance. Instead of arriving at the theater, audience members are given a phone number to call at a specific time and then connected to an anonymous fellow participant. And with no geographic limitations on who can buy a ticket, an audience member from Charleston could conceivably be paired with someone on the other side of the globe. Through a series of automated prompts, the two callers essentially make a piece of theater with each other, Silverstone said. That sort of ephemeral, spontaneous creation is at the heart of what A Thousand Ways — and, in a broader sense, all of 600 Highwaymen’s work — hopes to achieve. “The thing that we've been thinking a lot about is: How do we make shows where we people can feel the feeling of coming together, where people can see one another, and can be in some kind of collaboration?” Silverstone said. “This piece is about sort A Thousand of learning to see what you cannot see, and Ways (Part One): getting close to something that you actually A Phone Call are just inventing. I think it's about two June 3-7 people who are making something, and it Various times lasts an hour, and then it's gone.” Virtual by phone Silverstone said removing the artifice of $65 theater — where actors play roles and audiences passively receive the story — has been a central tenet of the work he and Browde have created since their days as students in NYU’s experimental theater wing; they officially started working as 600 Highwaymen in 2009. When the pandemic hit, the pair retreated upstate from New York City, and Silverstone became increasingly bored by the virtual theater — mostly Zoom or recorded work — that was being made in response to the pause on live performance.
He and Browde had already been at work on what would become the second part of A Thousand Ways — An Encounter, which takes place in a theater, with pairs of participants (again strangers) meeting in person, separated by plexiglass and responding to a series of prompts on notecards. And so, they decided to reconfigure the experience for the telephone. (Part Three: An Assembly is currently in development. Silverstone describes it as an “extension” of the first two parts, with audience members gathered together in a theater and reading from a script.) The initial trial runs of A Phone Call were “really bad,” Silverstone said, especially since they were working so quickly — 600 Highwaymen shows typically have a years-long developmental process — and in a new format. “We spent last summer hosting these phone calls with strangers,” Silverstone said. “We would just literally get two people who we know don't know each other, and we got them on the phone. We started just giving them prompts.” The experimentation paid off, and cultural institutions from Ann Arbor to Austria have programmed Part One since the Seattle theater On the Boards premiered it in September 2020. The Public Theater in New York City hosted a sold-out run as part of its Under the Radar experimental theater festival and recently revived the show in anticipation of opening part two in June — the first time theatergoers will be at the theater, in person, since last March. Under the Radar artistic director Mark Russell has worked with 600 Highwaymen on multiple
projects, including The Fever and The Record. What initially drew him to the company, he said, was Silverstone and Browde’s rigorous attention to detail and their unwillingness to stop experimenting until the work is just right. And, he believes that Part One could live on long after theaters have opened back up for in-person performances. “It's not just about the pandemic,” Russell said. “It's something that, when I did it myself, with some stranger out in Albuquerque, I wanted to write that person a Christmas card. It really moved me. It taught me things about myself that I didn't completely know.” Silverstone said the audience responses have been overwhelmingly positive, even from those who were initially reluctant. Creating a play and not actually witnessing the performance has been strange for him; the calls are not recorded, and no one other than the two participants are on the line. However, he and Browde have set up a hotline for audience members to call in and share their experiences, if they feel so compelled. “A lot of people say that they were just really surprised by how the performance took shape,” Silverstone said. “In the beginning, you do the call — and it's a little clunky, you're on the phone line, maybe the connection isn't so great. By the end of it, it just becomes this other thing.” Matthew Nerber is a graduate student in the Goldring Arts Journalism and Communications program at Syracuse University.

families combine for high-octane dance

because of the COVID-19 pandemic. When it opens in Charleston, it will be the first time The Woman in Black has played onstage since March 2019. “The excitement, from our point of view, is just putting on a play in front of people,” Smith said. “And, I think the audience will come on that journey with us as well.” It’s a sentiment echoed by Anshuman Bhatia, the show’s production manager, lighting designer and associate set designer. Bhatia worked with Smith on the previous American incarnations of The Woman in Black, and said that the communal experience of being together in a theater has been
Similarly, Ephrat Asherie’s choreography pulls from breaking, whacking, vogue, Latin hustle, Brazilian samba, hip-hop, house and West African dance. “As club dancers and social dancers, we’re always bringing the breadth and the width of our experience to the dance floor,” she said. “He was doing that with his music, and so I was really drawn and inspired by that.” The club scene served as a major inspiration to Asherie and her company members, who often hit the clubs together as well as perform on stage and in the studio. “The vibe of the club as a place of freedom of expression, as a place of tolerance and inclusivity, and a place where the collective consciousness really celebrates the individual, where you are really free to be yourself — this vibe is very integral to the way I make work, the company and everything we do,” she said. The affection for Odeon extends outside of the Asherie family and into the “dance family” that Ephrat Asherie Dance has created. “Odeon is about joy as a form of resistance and solidarity in rhythm,” said
Teena Marie Custer, who has been with the company since 2011. After a year of canceled shows, these performers are itching to get back on the stage and share their work with an audience. “It's so special to connect with people you love in this very specific way, but also to be able to share that connection,” said Ms. Vee, who has also danced with the company since 2011. “There’s nothing like it.” When those audiences file into the newly constructed Rivers Green stage at the College of Charleston, Asherie hopes they will react to Odeon in whatever way feels natural. “I don’t ever want audiences to feel that they have to sit in their seat or that they can’t say something if they feel moved to cheer or to clap or to holler,” she said. “Even on stage sometimes we say things to each other or make sounds, and it’s very much part of these movement forms.”

the show was originally booked. But, the production team was finding it difficult to control the noise with new foot traffic patterns around downtown; the venue change to Memminger Theater should deliver an experience more closely aligned to the play as it was meant to be staged. Smith is convinced the Charleston audiences will have as much fun — and frights — as theatergoers have had in the past. “The beauty of The Woman in Black is that when you're sitting together, you experience a communal fright, and a communal terror,” he said. “That's how I came to love it.” Matthew Nerber is a graduate student in the Goldring Arts Journalism and Communications program at Syracuse University.
orking with siblings is always tricky. For many, it either goes very right (HAIM, the Coen brothers) or exceptionally wrong (Oasis, the Andrews Sisters). Judging from past performances, choreographer Ephrat Asherie and her brother, jazz pianist Ehud Asherie, have landed in the former category for the second time with Odeon, a high-energy 2018 work that will open June 9 at Spoleto Festival USA. Ephrat Asherie, the artistic director of Ephrat Asherie Dance company, was first introduced to African-American and Latinx vernacular dance by listening to hip-hop music in the 1980s and ’90s. From there, she became involved in the breaking scene through her mentor Richard Santiago, better known by his B-boy name, “Break Easy,” and was also introduced to the house scene in New York City. “The underground dance scene in New York has always been my dance family, but it’s always been really important to me to find points of intersection with my dance family and my blood family,” Asherie said. “My brother and I had worked together in 2016, and it went well, which we were kind of surprised at — you never know about working with siblings.” It was a jazz performance by Ehud Asherie that introduced his sister to the multifaceted works of Ernesto Júlio de Nazareth. That music would become the soundtrack for Odeon, for which Ehud serves as musical director. (The Spoleto mounting will feature six dancers and four live musicians.) Nazareth was a Brazilian composer active at the turn of the 19th century. His works pull from many musical styles, including traditional Brazilian rhythms, Afro-Brazilian rhythms, classical European melodies and romantic European music.

Sightsee creating community with cafe and shop
AMOR Healing Kitchen names Ben Simon new culinary director
By Parker Milner
Sightsee Shop quickly became a staple in the Cannonborough Elliotborough neighborhood after opening in 2019, providing an experience highlighted by friendly service, funky playlists and curated collections of art and apparel. Moving forward, co-owners Allyson Sutton and Joel Sadler plan to expand their reach, giving them the opportunity to help other self-starters and have an impactful voice in the Charleston community. Sutton and Sadler opened Sightsee after a successful Kickstarter campaign with $33,000 in backing turned their pop-up into a breezy brick-and-mortar cafe with a giant window facing Line Street. That window came in handy during the pandemic when the only customer interaction the duo had was a quick wave from inside the shop, Sutton said. “We created this dual-concept business Sutton because we wanted it to be an experience when you come in, and we designed the space so people could kind of linger at the counter and have conversations with us,” said Sutton, adding that they shifted to an online ordering format allowing folks to pick up drinks on the ledge outside the shop. “All of a sudden, no one was even coming inside, so it was the complete opposite of the experience that we wanted to create.” After six long months, Sutton and Sadler reopened the shop, and just over a year into Sadler the pandemic, they’re back to doing what they do best — creating a “community space that’s inviting and inclusive.” A limited number of patrons can order an oat milk cappuccino before perusing the shop’s shelves while listening to one of four curated playlists: Summer, Still Summer, Cold Summer and Almost Summer. “We were making Sightsee playlists before the pop-ups,” Sadler said with a smile. “Really, the first product Sightsee ever put out was a playlist.” Look for an eclectic mix of apothecary products, bags, hats, books, drinkware and art crafted by local producers or Sadler himself, a self-proclaimed “doodler.” Sightsee sells prints of Sadler’s anatomy series, in which he maps out downtown Charleston’s peninsula in the shape of a heart, palm and brain. His latest work is

Drippy, the mascot for Sightsee’s first ever capsule collection dubbed “Good to the Last Beat Drop.” “It’s our first capsule collection, this term that I guess is from the fashion industry. I wanted to make something that we could use that would look good on multiple formats. The idea (was to have) a little icon of an animated character that kind of combines some of our interests,” said Sadler, who initially named the character “Lil Drippy” before realizing the name was taken on SoundCloud. “He’s skateboarding, he’s throwing up a peace sign, drinking coffee. Then, the tagline is, ‘Good to the Last Beat Drop,’ as a play on music and Maxwell House’s slogan.” Sightsee Shop doesn’t have to convince anyone that it’s a neighborhood spot with its look and location, and its role was amplified during the pandemic. “Everyone in the neighborhood has been going through this together. We have a lot of people in the neighborhood who started working from home, so they would come by as their one safe outing early on to have some people to talk to,” Sutton said. “That feels amazing for us that our community shows up for us.” “There’s the community, and then, there’s businesses like they’re patches on a shirt,” Sadler said. “The community is there doing its thing, and the patch can come and go. We may initially have just been a patch sewed on the community, but through the pandemic, I feel as though Sightsee has ceased to be a patch and has just become part of the thread itself. We’re just part of the fabric.” Moving forward, Sutton and Sadler plan to use their space to give entrepreneurs an opportunity by hosting more pop-ups. They also want their brand to be an example. “When I think about what I want to hold us accountable to, (it’s) the role that Sightsee plays in Charleston and in engaging in the issues here,” said Sadler, who, with Sutton, took to social media last week, pleading for more justice in local services and announcing they would donate $1 in every $10 sold throughout the week to Lowcountry Action Committee and Charleston Black Lives Matter. “Imagining five years out, we’re just a massive success, and over that time, gentrification has only gotten worse, and we have said nothing. Or, the police budget has doubled, and we have not participated in the city sessions. If we were successful, but these things continued to happen, I would consider that failure as a business. It’s a commitment to not quitting.”
Local nonprofit AMOR Healing Kitchen has named Ben Simon its new culinary director, following the departure of Justin Booher earlier this month. The Massachusetts-born chef joins AMOR after spending time in kitchens all over the country, including Felix Cocktails et Cuisine on King Street and three Michelinstarred Joël Robuchon in Las Vegas. Simon told the City Paper that he’s looking forward to the challenge of cooking solely plant-based cuisine after years of working in fine dining restaurants like Joël Robuchon, where the kitchen churned out a 16-course tasting menu with its fair share of meat. “It’s an amazing adjustment. I love it so far,” Simon said. “We meet all these farmers that are just doing wonderful things for the land.” Moving forward, Simon hopes to help AMOR reach even more locals in need of healthy meals.

Patrick Morris starts something fresh as Donawa
Rural Resonance joins forces with BadTalks on new track, “Apartment” Charleston-based music producer Matthew Kortheuer, aka Rural Resonance, teamed up with local hip-hop artist BadTalks to release the new electronic track “Apartment.” The lyrics mirror artistic epiphanies, referencing the processes of inspiration and creating art. “It’s about taking that raw passion and doing what you love … and not gaining physical things, but emotional,” White said. The final result is an indie-hip-hop sound that is both captivating and introspective. Listeners who want to dive deeper into Rural Resonance can also check out the EP, “Out of Time,” released last year. —Kate Bryan
By Chelsea Grinstead Local drummer Patrick Morris — one half of bluesy garage soul duo Mobros — has debuted his solo project Donawa with the first single “Everyday (Waiting)” May 31. The style of the song departs from the rock-driven sound of Mobros into a rhythmic, ethereal cadence of dreamy simplicity. Over the pandemic, Morris started recording on his iPhone to develop a handful of songs he’s had for years. “It’s crazy what you can do with your phone these days and the GarageBand app,” Morris said. “At first I wasn’t sure what to expect with these songs, and I wondered what they would turn out to be,” he said. “It gave me this fire. I wanted to branch out as much as possible.” Morris had the demo finished and took it to Corey Campbell of Babe Club to arrange and engineer the single in his home Charleston is studio. The process was a new world for Morris, who in addition like a well-kept to the drums, played acoustic secret in a lot of guitar and a vintage Yamaha keyboard (which is technically a toy). ways for music. Campbell is on bass and acoustic guitar for the track. It really is an “Sometimes the studio can organic place to be unnerving. It can be a head game. It’s relaxing to be at work on music home and not too much presand develop sure,” he said of his sessions with Campbell. your craft. LikeMorris wrote “Everyday minds are drawn (Waiting)” about two years ago. The song is a melancholy together.” examination of the fight to remain —Patrick Morris present without getting lost in the past or the future. “We are always letting go and reaching out for things, whatever that is, physical or spiritual. Sometimes there’s frustration for the future and what’s to come, and a little bit of wanting to get unstuck,” he said. The outro is a lyrical collaboration between Morris and Campbell that zeros in on the question of where things will end up as the next step reveals itself. “Charleston is like a well-kept secret in a lot of ways for music. It really is an organic place to work on music and develop your craft. Like-minds are drawn together. You can find such creative people that are open to collaborate. That’s what makes the scene strong.” For Morris, it’s about finding the propulsion to stay creative. Now that he’s embraced the songs he’s been sitting on for years, he’s ready for more. On the heels of finishing “Everyday(Waiting),” he worked with Jake Cochran of alt folk-rock duo Illiterate Light on some of the other demos in Nashville. There’s a strong possibility they will do a full album together in the future. Over the past year, he’s brought structure to his songwriting
Jazz pianist Abdiel Iriarte has a jam-packed June schedule
As Donawa, local drummer Patrick Morris taps more into what makes him tick as a songwriter process by practicing what’s called “morning pages” — an exercise from Julia Cameron’s book, The Artist’s Way. “I write three pages of stream of consciousness, and it gets all the extra words out. You can start finding something that is a little more interesting,” he said. Since the pandemic, he’s been challenging himself to write every day. “Part of the process is chipping away at the block until you can find the piece in there. I used to think about it too technically. If you can get past yourself when writing, you can really start releasing.” While you’re waiting for more tunes from Donawa, check out Mobros’ new compilation album, The Mobros, put out by Los Angeles-based company Artist Formula.
Local jazz pianist and composer Abdiel Iriarte has a June schedule brimming with unique acts and inspired collaborations with other celebrated Charleston-based musicians. Iriarte will take the stage at the Charleston Pour House with local Cuban outfit Gino Castillo and The Cuban Cowboys on June 15 and 29, playing an energetic fusion of traditional Cuban music, improvisational jazz and salsa. In another collaboration, Iriarte will be playing in a jazz duet with Charleston-based Brazilian guitar player and vocalist Duda Lucena every Wednesday in June at the Charleston Grill starting June 9. The pianist will join forces with vocalist Heather Rice for a tribute to the early works of Joni Mitchell at the Charleston Music Hall on June 12. The concert will feature some of Mitchell’s most iconic songs. Finishing the month on a high note, Iriate will return for his second year as piano facilitator at the Youth Jazz Orchestra All Stars Camp at the Gaillard Center June 21-25. The project is directed by Grammy-award-winning local musician and composer Charlton Singleton of Ranky Tanky, who invited him to join the project for the second year in a row — a role Iriarte is thrilled to reprise. —KB

Local emcee Learical pays homage to the local rappers who are helping him out of his shell with his new song said. They’ve been performing at open mic nights at Chico Feo and Elliotborough mini bar regularly this year. Recently she asked him to write a piece for a song of hers, which he called “What Have I Learned About Love” and read for the first time on video call with Charleston poet laureate Marcus Amaker. What he envisions going forward is doing both spoken word and songs at shows. At one of his most recent performances he read a letter he wrote to his dad, then brought out Noisy Boys bandmate Josh Davidson to perform some songs. “I want to bring it all together,” he said. The hybrid art Learical puts out is what he calls “evocative therapy” and without the open arms of the art scene in Charleston, it would not be possible. “People are actually listening and it’s genuine. I didn’t feel that growing up for the longest time. It’s good to finally find that in a community.” —Chelsea Grinstead
When Charleston’s soulful funk group The Real Good News played Tobin’s Market earlier this year with a lineup of local musicians, rapper Mike L!ve asked local poet and emcee Learical to get up on stage and do his thing — but he said “No.” Why not? He didn’t say at the time. “I thought, ‘I’m going to turn this into something, this moment that I passed up on,’” said Learical, aka Christian Morant. What resulted is his new single, “Collateral,” which chronicles not only the local rappers who inspire him, but also the mental grappling that comes with putting yourself out there as an artist. When writing the song, Morant said he was channeling not only the disappointment he felt at the time, but also the encouragement he’s received from those he looks up to. He invited his fellow Noisy Boys musician, bassist Mike Cashwell, to pull everything together on the keyboard and contribute bass and guitar. The self-examining lyrics maintain the cadence of a poem: “Cuz you’d rather look cool than actually do / What it takes to be great and everything to prove / You belong in this game when you’re just a ruse / A fake, a fraud ‘til they all applaud.” “Collateral” represents a combination of the musician holding himself accountable to his faults and paying homage to the scene he said has supported him. The song signals a departure from darker material he’s written in the past. “I’ve moved head spaces. Not to say I’m afraid to touch on those feelings, but I’m letting them go,” he said. Lately he’s been collaborating with local singer-songwriter Anna Crosby as her videographer. She has given him the chance lately to recite poetry at some shows. “I’ve been more confident since and know where to put my energy,” he
