Anastacia Renee at Twilight Gallery

In addition, Twilight Gallery (4306 SW Alaska St) will be hosting a special reception during Art Walk Thursday for Anastacia Renee Tolbert’s “9 Ounces: A One Woman Show”. Here’s a little more about this project:

A theatrical mixed-media project, 9 Ounces: A One Woman Show is an unkempt, de-ribbon- ed, narrative braid dangling with crooked parts and it unofficially yoga’s its way through the unexpected journey of a queer woman of color’s mid-life a-ha moment and extreme case of takotsubo’s cardiomyopathy. Using the audience as mirror, epiphany and diary, three narratives crochet themselves around evolving frames. Meet Luna, in(no)cent, truth-telling childlike ghost-angel, Saraphina filter-free wise counsel-spiritual matriarch and Alice an artist and writer wedged between four universal questions: Who the am I/not? What am I supposed to be doing? Why me? What’s for Dinner? Together, the three bravely and vulnerably traverse the what-now with humor, sadness and a longing wish to have a deeper appreciation and longstanding compassion for Alice’s 9-ounce heart and a goal to master downward dog.

Twilight will be hosting two nights – Friday, August 12 and Saturday, August 13 – where you can experience this unique performance art. Tickets are $10 and space is limited, so don’t miss out on your chance to be a part of one of the most exciting art events to come to West Seattle this year.
