The Welcoming: A Supper with For You Productions
Doors at 5PM; programming begins promptly at 5:30.
Join Headlands for The Welcoming, the first taste in a series of interactive performances by For You Productions, a collective founded by Bay Area Fellow Erika Chong Shuch, Ryan Tacata, and Rowena Richie. Since March 2020, in response to the isolation of the ongoing pandemic, For You Productions has been partnering with Little Brothers Friends for the Elderly (LBFE) to bring artists and elders together for creative exchange. Developing out of that ongoing work, The Welcoming presents an interactive performance paired with food inspired by the memories and imaginations of elders from the LBFE community, designed in collaboration with artists Sarah Wells, Bijun Liang, Lauren Spencer, Peekaboo, Gabrielle Christian, Deirdre Visser, and Werd Pace. Following the performance, guests and Artists will gather for a family-style meal in the Mess Hall.
The Welcoming is a co-production of For You Productions and Headlands Center for the Arts, supported by Creative Capital, New England Foundation for the Arts, Rainin Foundation, and California Arts Council. For You is a fiscally sponsored project of Dancers’ Group.
