Performed by Sand Artist Kseniya Simonova & Guy Mendilow Ensemble From the Ukraine, international sand art superstar Kseniya Simonova creates a stunning animation of stories lost to war — of Sephardi women’s voices, of bustling Mediterranean ports — by manipulating sand on a backlit pane of glass. She creates, morphs and obliterates sand imagery in real-time, crafting a flowing narrative that is projected on a giant screen overhead. The evocative music and radio-drama-style storytelling of the Guy Mendilow Ensemble (“an international tour-de-force,” Bethlehem Morning Call) adds a cinematographic soundtrack. Ms. Simonova won the first Ukraine’s Got Talent competition, and subsequently competed as a finalist in America’s Got Talent: The Champions in 2019.

The Actors’ Gang The New Colossus

In this intensely physical production, actors tell their ancestors’ stories in twelve different eras, all woven into a single narrative about escaping an oppressive homeland and being drawn to the beacon above Ellis Island. The play was work-shopped during the Obama years in a reaction to the Syrian refugee crises; Director Tim Robbins told the Los Angeles Times, “I looked around at our company, and we have people from all over the world, so I asked everyone to really think about their own families and how they found their way here.” Performed in twelve languages, each used sparsely, and interspersed with live music, poetry, and kinetic movement, the play concludes with a question — who are we as a nation? “The New Colossus holds a theatrical mirror to the nation” (Los Angeles Times).

One minute, you’re falling off your chair laughing, and the next, she unfurls a sentence that cuts straight to the heart of what you really needed to know” (Chicago Tribune). She addresses subjects that begin with capital letters — Alcoholism, Motherhood, Jesus. She’s armed with both selfeffacing humor — she is laugh-out-loud funny — and ruthless honesty, telling her stories with honesty, compassion and a pureness of voice. Winner of a Guggenheim Fellowship and an inductee in the California Hall of Fame, she’s the author of seven novels (Hard Laughter) and several bestselling books of nonfiction, including Operating Instructions (her life as a single mother during her son’s first year), and the classic Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life.

GREAT SHOWS. UP CLOSE. IN FOLSOM!


Leahy Award-winning Canadian group Leahy is one of the most highly regarded progressive folk-roots bands today. The band — siblings all — delivers performances that are full of energy, with a big rich sound, poignant songs, fiery instrumentals and percussive step-dancing. A national phenomena in their teens, and the subject of an Oscar-winning documentary and three PBS specials, the group’s passion for the music is unapologetic. In a word: unforgettable.
