Whose memory comes closest to the truth? Who bears the responsibility? See The Magnetic Theatre’s World Premiere of Lucia Del Vecchio’s BETTER STRANGERS! Best known for her rollicking Magnetic comedies such as MILF, The Musical and last year’s Off the Rails, playwright and Founding Artistic Associate Lucia Del Vecchio returns to Magnetic 375 (375 Depot Street in the River Arts District) with the world premiere of a thought-provoking drama, Better Strangers, about two people who meet again twenty years after a conversation that irrevocably changes one of their lives. Del Vecchio is extraordinarily excited about a script so different from those she’s written before. “This play allowed me to really delve into the nuances of dialogue,” the playwright says, “to follow what seems like a casual conversation between two people, who haven't seen each other in a long time, as it devolves into heated conflict and argument. Literally every word counts in a play like this, as it has the opportunity to shed light onto the motivations, subtext, and histories of each character.” Callan White, a highly regarded, Asheville-based actress and teacher, makes her Magnetic debut as the director of Better Strangers. The two-hander stars theatrical veteran Andrew Gall (a newly named Magnetic Theatre artistic associate, previously seen in The Magnetic’s Malverse, and the director of the company’s recent Six Knots) playing novelist/professor John Lambert, who—at least at first—has no recollection of former student Joanna Tilley, played by Emily Tynan, who makes her stage debut in this production. “This powerful play keeps becoming what you least expect,” says Magnetic Producing Artistic Director Steven Samuels. “And Lucia could not be more fortunate than to have Callan White directing a play with such complex, commanding characters. Andrew Gall’s performance will be strong, as always. Emily Tynan, the most-accomplished newcomer I’ve ever seen, will be a revelation.” The Magnetic Theatre presents the world premiere of Lucia Del Vecchio’s Six Knots, directed by Callan White. Starring Andrew Gall and Emily Tynan. Set and prop design by Nathan Singer. Lighting design by Jason Williams. At Magnetic 375 (375 Depot Street in the River Arts District). Low-priced previews September 14 & 15. Opening night, with free bubbly, September 16. Continues Thursdays-Saturdays through October 7. All performances at 7:30 PM. Previews $12. All other performances $16. $10 student rush tickets available 15 minutes before curtain with valid I.D. Prices include taxes and fees. Tickets and info: www.themagnetictheatre.org.

Sculptor Dustin Farnsworth is a rising star in the contemporary craft world, and has exhibited work in over fifty national exhibitions, most recently in The Center for Craft, Creativity and Design’s jointly-curated exhibition, Forging Futures, at Blue Spiral 1 in Asheville, NC. His work, both smaller sculptures and large-scale installations, is inspired by architectural forms. Farnsworth aims to create “visceral and cerebral portraiture of today’s youth,” a generation he believes is in “need of protection, empowerment, and change.” Each year since 2006, CCCD awards ten graduating college seniors a Windgate Fellowship—one of the largest awards offered nationally to emerging artists. To celebrate the tenth anniversary of this program, CCCD launched the Windgate Project Grants initiative for previous fellows. For his Windgate Project Grant, Farnsworth worked as an artist-in-resident at the 701 Center for Contemporary Art in Columbia, South Carolina. The resulting installation incorporates audio and photographs taken during on-site interviews with local youth, while demonstrating how these contributions shaped his artistic process. Learn more about his work at the Windgate Project Grant Lecture, part of the North Carolina Art Council’s 50th Anniversary Celebration. The Windgate Fellowship Project Grant program is administered by The Center for Craft, Creativity & Design and supported by the Windgate Fund at the Community Foundation of Western North Carolina.

Description:
From the author of the New York Times bestseller, The Girls of Atomic City comes the fascinating true story behind the magnificent Gilded Age mansion Biltmore--the largest, grandest residence ever built in the United States. Help celebrate the launch of THE LAST CASTLE: THE EPIC STORY OF LOVE, LOSS, AND AMERICAN ROYALTY IN THE NATION'S LARGEST HOME. This is a hometown story from one of Asheville's finest writers. Author Karen Abbott (Liar, Temptress, Soldier Spy) will join Denise in conversation for this not-to-be-missed in-store event. About the book: Orphaned at a young age, Edith Stuyvesant Dresser claimed lineage from one of New York's best-known families. She grew up in Newport and Paris, and her engagement and marriage to George Vanderbilt was one of the most watched events of Gilded Age society. But none of this prepared her to be mistress of Biltmore House. Before their marriage, the wealthy and bookish Vanderbilt had dedicated his life to creating a spectacular European-style estate on 125,000 acres of North Carolina wilderness. He summoned the famous landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted to tame the grounds, collaborated with celebrated architect Richard Morris Hunt to build a 175,000-square-foot Chateau, filled it with priceless art and antiques, and erected a charming village beyond the gates. Newlywed Edith was now mistress of an estate nearly three times the size of Washington, DC, and benefactress of the village and surrounding rural area. When fortunes shifted and changing times threatened her family, her home, and her community, it was up to Edith to save Biltmore--and secure the future of the region and her husband's legacy. The story of Biltmore spans World Wars, the Jazz Age, the Depression, and generations of the famous Vanderbilt family, and features a captivating cast of real-life characters including F. Scott Fitzgerald, Thomas Wolfe, Teddy Roosevelt, John Singer Sargent, James Whistler, Henry James, and Edith Wharton. The Last Castle is the uniquely American story of how the largest house in America flourished, faltered, and ultimately endured to this day. Karen Abbott is the pen name of Abbott Kahler. She is the New York Times bestselling author of SIN IN THE SECOND CITY, AMERICAN ROSE, and, most recently, LIAR TEMPTRESS SOLDIER SPY, named one of the best books of 2014 by Library Journal, the Christian Science Monitor, and Amazon, and optioned by Sony for a miniseries.A native of Philadelphia, she now lives in New York City, where she's at work on her next book.

Writing from the Top of Your Head is a one-of-a-kind six-week workshop designed for writers who have a burning desire to write but have a hard time facing the blank page. Class meets Monday evenings 6-8:30 p.m. from October 2 to November 6, 2017. As an optional add-on, students may purchase individual coaching sessions with the instructor in increments of 30 or 60 minutes.  You struggle with procrastination, self-criticism, or perfectionism, and you hide your writer self from the world. Many writers have been “heartbroken” by “the cult of criticism” and other obstacles that get in the way of a thriving creative life. They long for an environment where it’s safe to explore, fall down, make mistakes, and experiment wildly. This is the place you’ve been longing for. Expect some roaring laughter as well as a traversing of the depths, and a deeper sense of freedom on the page Writing from the Top of Your Head is inspired by Emily Dickinson, who wrote “If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, that is poetry.”  In this workshop you will be guided, in a criticism-free environment of support and safety, to “open the top of your head” to access personal images, words, sounds, and memories. You will build a beautifully solid foundation for a resilient creative life, one that enables you to follow through on your creative dreams and goals in a purposeful and fulfilling way. The course incorporates powerful strategies from Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coaching and Gateless Method writing – both proven techniques that help artists overcome blocks that stem from the creative process.  To register by check, email [email protected]s.com for instructions. Nina Hart bio: Nina Hart is a writer, performer, and creativity coach trained in the Kaizen Muse method. She is also a certified Gateless Method writing teacher – “a method of teaching the art and craft of writing using creative brain science, ancient non-dual teachings and highly-effective craft tools…allowing writers to access the creative genius inside.” Her first collection of surreal short fictions called “Somewhere in a Town You Never Knew Existed Somewhere” was selected as a Short Stories (Adult Fiction) category finalist in Foreword Reviews’ prestigious 2014 IndieFab Book of the Year Awards. She is the founder of a unique method of teaching writing called “Writing from the Top of your Head,” which combines group Creativity Coaching with creative writing. Nina was also an original member of the experimental dance troupe Contraband, in San Francisco and, playing a purple electric bass, has recorded and performed with numerous bands.
