TIME:  7:00 pm
LOCATION:     Washington Hall, 153 14th Avenue, Seattle, WA 98122 (map)

INFO:   Award-winning author Mary Gaitskill is best known for delivering powerful stories of dislocation, longing, and desire with prose that “glides lightly over unsoundable depths” (Village Voice).  The New Yorker called her National Book Award-finalist novel, Veronica, “one of the great American novels of the past decade,” and The New York Times Book Review called her latest, The Mare, “extraordinary…[A] magnificently hopeful novel.” What is that mysterious quality that makes the plot and characters of a novel or short story seem real, even when they are outlandish? Gaitskill calls this inner life of fiction the “inner weave,” and in her Word Works talk, “The Inner Weave: Mystery and Imagery in Fiction,” she will describe how this “inner weave” may be created through language, specifically nonverbal imagery with layers of meaning and/or feeling through which we may sense the hidden and irrational life of characters and stories—that is, what makes them most deeply real. Q&A will follow.

Pacific Northwest Ballet | Pictures at an Exhibition
DATE:  Thursday, June 8th
TIME:  7:30pm
LOCATION: McCaw Hall: 321 Mercer Street   (map)

INFO: "LA SOURCE IS BALANCHINE AT HIS MOST ELEGANT—A PERFECT APERITIF. You’ll smell the perfume in this sublime work originally created for Violette Verdy. Opus 19 is a darker work by Jerome Robbins originally created for Mikhail Baryshnikov. It is also a work I danced for most of my career, working closely with Robbins in the studio. It’s an emotional and physical marathon with enormous rewards for audience and artist alike. Our final ballet is by Alexei Ratmansky (Don Quixote, Concerto DSCH), a man as humble as he is talented. Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition is paired with Wassily Kandinsky’s vivid geometric images; the work showcases dancers as priceless masterpieces —just like this season. You won’t want to miss a bit of it." -Peter Boal
