I’m delighted to be part of Anna Rae’s diversely curated series All Together Now, where I’ll be performing original puppetry pieces in an evening that also features surf rock band Honey Cutt, poet Amanda Shea, and magician Just Felice.
All Together Now is a multidisciplinary event that makes space for women, people of color, and queer performers. Every installment features a range of performance genres and performer identities.
Scout Cambridge interviewed Anna Rae about the series:
Part of the impetus behind All Together Now is Rae’s own experience as a local musician. After moving here from Wyoming, Rae began to realize that the rock scene was fairly homogeneous: white, male, cis, straight.Scout Cambridge: https://scoutcambridge.com/all-together-now/
“There was a lot of great local rock music, but the shows had all the same rituals,” she said. “Boston as a whole is very racially segregated, and that translates into the art, the subcultures focused on different art forms. There were not a lot of opportunities to collaborate.”
“I think there is absolutely a very strong appetite for this type of thing,” says Rae. “Everyone who comes to an All Together Now show says they’ve been wanting something like this, they feel welcome here, they want to go to more. But I think a lot of people aren’t aware.”
