Arts & Culture, In-Residence, Literary, Music, Special Programming

In the culminating performance of Town Hall’s inaugural three-month In Residency program, Artist in Residence Ahamefule J. Oluo and Scholar in Residence Lesley Hazleton present the creative results of their terms and introduce us to the Spring 2013 Artist and Scholar In Residence.

Oluo’s presentation is Now I’m Fine, which utilizes monologues, comedy, and a 13-piece orchestra to tell the personal and in-depth story of one hectic, traumatic, and hilarious year of the author’s life—basically a wrap-up of the skills Oluo has honed over the past decade as a musician, composer, stand-up comic, and writer. Now I’m Fine’s orchestra features many of Seattle’s exceptional talents, including Evan Flory-Barnes, D’vonne Lewis, Sam Boshnack, and performance artist okanomode.

For her part, Hazleton presents a one-of-a-kind “multi-logue” (as opposed to a monologue) on Town Hall’s fall 2012 season: an audience-sourced intellectual portrait mixed from “Live Tweet” messages, impressions, and ideas about Town Hall events —with a little of Hazleton’s fresh surface here and there. Presented by Town Hall as part of its Artist/Scholar in Residence Program, with media sponsorship by The Stranger.

Advance tickets are $5 at www.townhallseattle.org or 888/377-4510 and at the door beginning at 6:30 pm. Great Hall; enter on Eighth Avenue.
