The Flux Salon - March 9th, 2015

You are invited to join us for a very special Open Invite edition of the Flux Salon as we present a reading of Out of Time, the newest play by recent Gregory Award and Seattle Times Footlight Award winner Rachel Atkins (Black Like Us). Rachel will be joining us in person for an intimate conversation about this new work. In addition to the play reading, there will be live performances by Shontina Vernon + Band, beat-box artist Zeke Keeble, a sound installation from collaborate:create Cycle 3 resident artist Seth Caplan and more. The Flux Salon will be hosted by Hommage in Queen Anne, a French restaurant set along the Lake WA Ship Canal, featuring a menu driven by the changing seasons as well as Chef Nico Borzee's life experiences.

This Salon will mark the kick-off to Forward Flux Productions' inaugural 2015 season in Seattle (after moving here from NYC), and the third and final Salon in a series highlighting new pieces from female playwrights around the country.


Three different pairs of women (Pilar O'Connell, Yesenia Iglesias, and Leslie Wisdom) are linked by tragedy through time. 3 actors play 6 characters, all struggling to make a connection while facing disaster and its aftermath.Out of Time is a beautiful new play about life and death, choices and consequences, chance, hope, loss and survival.
