Enjoy ‘The Arts in the Garden’ at Highline SeaTac Botanical Garden in July
Enjoy ‘The Arts in The Garden at Highline SeaTac Botanical Garden this July!
“Join us for three wonderful events that celebrate the beauty and inspiration of the garden in July,” reads an announcement.
The garden will be holding a free Butoh performance called ‘Wandering & Wondering,’ this Saturday, July 14th, from 1-3 p.m. in the Seike Japanese Garden at HSBG. Join Joan Laage and her troupe as they weave the spell of Geisha being captivated by the sights and sounds of the beautiful Japanese landscape. Butoh is a post-WWII Japanese performance style that combines dance and mime to create a contemplative performance experience.
For those who like to create art themselves, they’ll be holding a two-day painting workshop led by regional watercolor artist Susie Short. Painting Roses will teach all attendees, amateur or experienced, how to capture the magic of roses with the stroke of a brush. For more information or to register, visit Susie’s website, www.susieshort.net.
Lastly, Book-It Repertory company returns to HSBG to present their adaptation of The Future Remembered on Sunday, July 22, from 1-2pm. This free play explores the impact of the 1964 Seattle Worlds Fair on the Puget Sound region – and how that event continues to influence our lives to this day. This is a general admission performance, so bring a chair, bring a blanket, bring a picnic – come and enjoy a blast from the past!
