AROUET PRESENTS THE TEMPERAMENTALS - A CHRONICLE OF GAY HISTORY
On Friday-Saturday, May 10-11, Monday, May 13, Thursday, May 16, Saturday, May 18, Sunday, May 19 (May 19 performance interpreted for the hearing impaired), and Thursday-Saturday, May 23-25, with performances at 7:30 p.m., except Sunday, May 19 at 2 p.m., at The Ballard Underground (2220 NW Market St.), Arouet and Alfed Zern Hill present the Northwest premier of The Temperamentals by Jon Marans.

The Temperamentals chronicles the early days of the Gay Rights movement, almost 20 years before Stonewall, told through the love affair between Communist Harry Hay (who later founded the Radical Faeries) and Viennese fashion designer Rudi Gernreich. In the McCarthy era, when homosexuals were openly persecuted, five men came together and formed the Mattachine Society, the first sustained Gay Rights organization in the United States that paved the way for today's Gay Rights movement.

The New York Times called The Temperamentals 'an eminently likable docudrama about gay identity in the age of Eisenhower,' Backstage said 'The Temperamentals is an exceedingly fine play - smart, passionate, focused, and satisfying.' After Elton stated 'playwright Jon Marans has written the brilliantly-titled The Temperamentals, a play that captures all the messy complexity of the founding of a movement,' while the Associated Press calls it 'Fascinating, entertaining and emotionally affecting.'

Tickets: General admission $16 in advance/$20 at the door; student/senior $12 in advance/$16 at the door. www.brownpapertickets.com/event/362590; 1-800-838-3006.

SEATTLE CENTER FESTAL - 'SPIRIT OF WEST AFRICA'
On Saturday, May 11, from noon-8 p.m., at Seattle Center Armory, Seattle Center Festal presents 'Spirit of West Africa,' inviting visitors to explore and experience the cultural roots and contemporary influences of West Africa through live performances, visual arts, hands-on activities, foods, games, and a lively marketplace. The annual festival expands this year to include artists and performers whose expression clearly reflects the influence of West African culture, but who live and work in Seattle and call this city their home, regardless of where they were born. They come from places like Trinidad, Cuba, Jamaica, Haiti, Peru, Columbia, Brazil, Guyana and the list could go on.

Under the direction of Senegalese born Thione Diop, 'Festal: Spirit of West Africa' has always focused on music and dance as performed by West African artists, many of them brought to Seattle just for this festival as guest performers. The more expansive view this year considers the fact that Seattle is now home to many artists from these nations as well as the great African Diaspora, that vast region of the Americas created by the trans-Atlantic slave trade, who continue to practice their traditional arts. In addition, many American-born artist consciously work in mediums, especially music, that emphasize and celebrate West African cultural ideas and values.

JUSMONI & WD4D WITH DAVE B, GIFT UH GAB & DJ SAME AT WASHINGTON HALL
On Saturday, May 11, at 8pm, at Washington Hall (14th Ave. & E. Fir St.) Local R&B singer and activist JusMoni (aka Moni Tep) hosts an evening of music and more with WD4D, Dave B, Gift Uh Gab and DJ Same.

As Luzviminda Uruzi 'Lulu' Carpenter writes: 'JusMoni exemplifies the fusion of art and activism. She's a musician, storyteller, community organizer, grassroots educator, and all around advocate for LGBTQ people, youth, people of color, and women, along with everyone standing at the intersections of these identities, as she does herself.

'Intersections mean figuring out where things connect. Figuring out how one thing affects another.' JusMoni says, reflecting on how mixed gender, racial and cultural experi-ences have influenced her. 'My identity helps me reach audiences and communities of vast demographics. There are no rules at the intersections, so why make them.'

'Nurtured by the Seattle scene, R&B singer JusMoni has come into her own, and is ready to lift up a new general of local music and activism.'

Joining JusMoni at this event will be WD4D aka Waylon Dungan, Dave B., Gift Uh Gab, and DJ Same.

As Luzviminda Carpenter writes, 'The show will be ushering in a new renaissance at Washington Hall that is known for its cultural fusion of immigrants and people of color since 1908 with jazz, music, art, culture, activism, and community. In many ways, JusMoni embodies the essence of what this historical Central District building is all about.

'JusMoni's music invited audiences to join her on her life's journey; from being born to a Cambodian refugee mother and African-American father, growing up in the Central District and South End, surviving traumas, seeing many friends die at a young age, being a single and resourceful mother, coming out as Queer and gender fierce, and ultimately using her stories, identities, and experiences to advocate for herself and other youth.

'If you do come out on Saturday night, you will not be disappointed. JusMoni and WD4D make audiences smile for joy, come to peace with their pasts, heal through beats and vocals, and tell a story of pain, struggle, and ultimate triumph through art and community.' Admission: $10 - all ages.
