During All Sides Weekend Arts, Christopher Purdy discusses 'The Flood' with composer Korine Fujiwara, Opera Columbus artistic director Peggy Kriha Dye and Janet Chen, executive director of ProMusica Chamber Orchestra.
Facing stiff opposition, Columbus leaders have downsized a proposed ticket tax. The new plan lowers the tax from 7 percent to 5 percent, and it also better defines where the money will go. But some opponents still threaten to take the issue to the ballot.
Theatre is a powerful tool for introducing tough and sobering topics into our everyday conversations.
Racism is one of those challenging topics. Through spoken word, acting and visual performances, we can better understand and engage in thinking about the treatment and experiences of black people in modern America.
Today on All Sides, guest host Gail Hogan joins us as we talk about theatre as a tool for spurring dialogue about racism.
