Hone your ability to create honest characters, feel confident connecting and collaborating with others, and discover freedom and playfulness.

Improv II: Beyond the Basics – Learning to Fly
Sep 22 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Asheville Community Theatre

This class will be offered in person on the ACT Mainstage, following all the recommended

protocols for safety and sanitation. Class is limited to 8 students.

Improv II reinforces all of the skills learned in Improv I by applying those skills to advanced scene work, character creation structures, and at times intentionally conflict-filled scenarios. Beyond Basic will encourage students to no longer be bound by the rules of improv but to swing freely and see that the strategies are not restricting but sound instincts. A sense of play is as important as proper technique. Students will gain further experience and confidence in unscripted comedic performance through more-involved improvised stories, scenes, and group structures; again all done from a safe distance.

Prerequisite: Improv 1 or extensive improv experience (approved by instructor)

*In person classes are 50 minutes with an added 10 minutes for temperature checks*

 

Jimmy Carter: Rock + Roll President Pop Up Movie Screening
Sep 22 @ 8:00 pm – 9:45 pm
plēb urban winery

Image may contain: one or more people, people standing and outdoor, text that says 'Gregg Allman Bono Garth Jimmy Rosanne Brooks Buffett Cash JIMMY CARTER ROCK& ROLL PRESIDENT "As joyful and buoy buoyantas.its ant as music. Hollijrood Bob Willie Nile Paul Trisha Dylan Nelson Rodgers Simon Yearwood'

President combines rare archival footage with era-defining live performances: Aretha Franklin, Jimmy Buffett, Paul Simon, Dizzy Gillespie, and Herbie Hancock only scratch the surface. Mary Wharton traces how Carter’s genuine approachability became key to his political appeal, and allowed him to connect with voters who may only have known him as a small-town peanut farmer. But even more urgently, it shows us the unifying potential of a leader who believed, in a twist on Dylan’s words, that America could get busy being born, even as it seemed busy dying. — Loren Hammonds

Asheville Art Museum: Drawing Basics Class
Sep 23 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Online

September 9, 16, 23, 30, October 7 & 14 (make-up, if needed: October 21)—Wednesdays, 6–8pm
Registration deadline: September 2
This program takes place virtually via Zoom. Space is limited; to register, click here or call 828.253.3227 x122.

In this six-part class, explore the fundamentals of drawing. Strengthen your ability to understand the visual language employed by artists, and learn to speak the same language by developing work of your own. Working with both technique and theory, start with proportion, placement, planes, and perspective, then move to shading and measuring before putting it all together in a final copying exercise. Works from the Museum’s Collection serve as examples of key drawing concepts, as well as a model for master copies.

Instructor Tony Corbitt, Jr. is a professional, self-taught artist living, working, and teaching in Asheville. Inspired by the French Masters of the late 19th century, he often favors plein air painting, emphasizing tonal relationships and sound draftsmanship with broad sweeps of a loaded brush. His inspiration is rooted in the American South; be it painting the Gulf Coast, sketching an alligator, or capturing the ever-changing shadows of the Blue Ridge Mountains, he can usually be found outdoors, fully immersed in his surroundings.

“Blood Done Sign My Name” by Mike Wiley
Sep 24 @ 7:30 pm
Online

Henry “Dickie” Marrow, a 23-year-old U.S. Army veteran whose wife was pregnant with their third daughter, was beaten down and shot to death in the street by Robert Teel, Teel’s 18-year-old son Larry, and Roger Oakley, Teel’s 21-year-old stepson, for allegedly making a remark to Larry Teel’s wife. Despite testimony by two black eyewitnesses, the men were acquitted of the crime by an all-white jury. Roger Oakley, Teel’s stepson, actually confessed to shooting the gun but was never indicted. But it was the Teels’ acquittal for their hotheaded hate crime that launched the city of Oxford, North Carolina into a season of violent reprisals.

The performance will be accompanied by gospel vocalist Mary D. Williams.
