THE WARP & THE WEFT at The Magnetic Theatre
A troupe of actors share songs and experiences from their childhood then vie for the opportunity to act out their favorite story for (and with!) the audience.
This world premiere was created by Asheville Creative Arts and features text and video from 8th grade students from Hanger Hall and participants of the Latino youth group MANOS (Mentoring And Nurturing Our Students), a Buncombe County Schools and WWC collaboration. Inspired by images of children in NC’s textile industry at the turn of the century, this performance will encourage the young (and young at heart) to tell their own stories on their own terms.

“Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers.
Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society.
Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears.
Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi
