About zero to fierce

THE 3rd annual Zero to Fierce WomXn's Festival: AN OPPORTUNITY TO DISCOVER, INSPIRE, AND CREATE!

On March 4 through March 10, 2019, Playhouse Arts produces the Third Annual 02F: Zero To Fierce Festival. This weeklong event celebrating creative womxn in our community is centered around International Women’s Day on Friday, March 8th. Co-Director Jacqueline Dandeneau has been working hard to produce a memorable event. " I am excited by what we have planned for the Festival this year. We have the premier of two original theater pieces, an art exhibit from local visual artists, an evening of women in music, and we are happy to be working with other organizations such as Centro Del Pueblo, Outer Space, Redwood Raks and Dead Reckoning. It is becoming increasingly important for us as a community to gather together, and that is what this weeklong event is about - from the Convivial Symposium to the International Potluck Brunch.”

This year the 02F Festival is broken down into two series, the Lunchbox Series and the Evening Series. The Lunchbox Series, Monday through Friday from noon to 1pm, offers people a unique experience on their lunch break. Topics include making peace with money, queer identity, Morris Graves, the invisibility of aging and Native Women and violence. “When you buy your ticket, you get a light lunch along with amazing performances and important conversations” says Dandeneau.

The Evening Series includes the movie Roma, with a pre movie discussion by Centro Del Pueblo, an ongoing art exhibit ,“/SHē-ärt frəm THə härt/”, the return of the Convivial Symposium, and local teens will present their original musical Sandman. On International Women’s Day the Arcata branch of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom will be celebrating at the Playhouse with their annual free event. Other events include the 8th Annual One Minute Dances at Redwood Raks and women in music at Outer Space.

On Saturday, March 9, The Broad Side will feature four different musical styles with an eclectic group of women including Julie Fulkerson, Gwen Post, Lorenza Simmons, Jenny Mao Villasenor, Lyndsey Battle and the Monster Women.

To close this week of outstanding events, there will an International Potluck Lunch on Sunday, March 10 at 1pm.
