We’ve been doing cooking for Sprout‘s spaghetti dinners for a few months now, and it’s a great time! A different theme each month, illuminated by music, informative lectures, puppet shows, and as much ‘pasketti and aioli as you can slide down your gullet. The theme this month is Transportation and Public Space. The space is dedicated to community and science: thesprouts.org
Here’s a description of the dinner:
“sprout spaghetti dinners is a dinner theater series seeking to bring people from the Somerville and Cambridge communities together around good food, good music, and good performance. Each month, we’ll find an eclectic group of performers to explore the month’s theme through different lenses. In the tradition of dinners hosted by NYC-based theater company Great Small Works, we want to cast new light on common ideas from artistic, musical, and scientific perspectives. You can find information about past dinners at our blog (http://spaghetti.blogs.thesprouts.org).
The theme for this month’s dinner is Transportation and Public Space. It will be happening just outside of Davis Square at sprout (339R Summer St.) on Wednesday April 7 with dinner at 7:30pm and performances beginning at 8. A $10 suggested donation will help us cover expenses.
Our performers will include ::
– Members of SCUL (http://scul.org) will be parading in on their bicycles and talking a little with people about their group.
– Jeff Rosenblum from Livable Streets (http://livablestreets.info/) will be talking about Street Design: Dirty Little Engineering Secrets Revealed.
– kanarinka, a.k.a. Catherine D’Ignazio, an artist and educator, will discuss her project It takes 154,000 breaths to evacuate Boston (http://bit.ly/cnAqnk), and examine the role that fear can play in public space, especially in the form of public transport awareness campaigns, terror simulations in public space, and so on.
– Molly Allis, a local artist and musician, will show an animated music video called Seahorse about a girl who goes on a whimsical journey through city, sky, and sea.
