The 02F: Zero to Fierce Festival, Playhouse Arts' seven-day festival "celebrating creative womxn" in the community, returns with fire March 4-10 at the Arcata Playhouse. The event, centered around International Women's Day on March 8, promises more of the groundbreaking, inclusive and inspiring conversations, music and art that made it a hit the last two years.
Co-director Jacqueline Dandeneau says she's excited by what's on tap for this year's festival. "We have the premier of two original theater pieces, an art exhibit from seven local visual artists, an evening of women in music and we are happy to be working with other organizations such as Outer Space, Redwood Raks and Dead Reckoning."
This year, the festival is broken down into two series: the Lunchbox Series and the Evening Series. The Lunchbox Series takes place Monday through Friday from noon to 1 p.m. with topics that include making peace with money, queer identity, the artist Morris Graves, the invisibility of aging and Native women and violence. The Evening Series includes a free showing of the Oscar-winning movie Roma, a visual art show, theater, dance, a convivial symposium, beer tasting, live music and an international potluck.
Tickets are available for purchase at www.zerotofierce.org, at Wildberries Marketplace or by calling the Arcata Playhouse at 822-1575.
