The Complete Works Of William Shakespeare (Abridged) – Ringgold Depot

“One of London’s longest-running comedies of all time, this hilarious play showcases all 37 of

William Shakespeare’s plays in 97 minutes! Three (or more based on the director’s discretion)

madcap actors in tights weave their wicked way through all of Shakespeare’s comedies,

histories, and tragedies in one wild ride that will leave you breathless and helpless with laughter.

The show is an irreverent, fast-paced romp through the Bard’s works.”

WSLR Presents: Babehoven & Deaux Eyes – The Woodshop 

“Since starting Babehoven in Portland, Oregon in 2017, Maya Bon has shown herself to be a gifted heart-on-sleeve songwriter, using music to peel back the layers of her own experiences—sometimes sad, sometimes surreal, always vividly rendered—to reveal universal emotional truths hidden in the most intimately personal of details. On Babehoven’s new EP, ‘Sunk,’ Bon seeks to answer a seemingly simple yet ultimately life changing question: what would happen if, rather than constantly fighting against the immovable tides of unfixable things—broken relationships, a fractured society, a future that erodes daily in the face of climate change—she gave herself permission to stop struggling altogether. What beauty might life attain if the choice to give up—to become ‘sunk’—was reframed as an act of self-care rather than one of defeat? ‘Sinking can be a form of self acceptance, allowing oneself to let go of the narrative that we have to keep treading water in order to succeed—there are ways to move on from the parts of ourselves and our lives that feel unmanageably difficult and hopeless,’ says Bon of the EP’s title.”

The festival experience is full of surprises.

A festival pass offers access to all publicly announced performances—enabling festival goers to not only see familiar artists that they know and love, but also to explore the music of artists with whom they are not already familiar.

With a very rare exception, everything—all of the venues, along with Knoxville’s finest hotels and award-winning restaurants—is within an easy, short walk of everything else, with a dedicated festival trolley service offering assistance should you wish to rest up for a moment and catch your breath.

While no two Big Ears are quite the same, each year the festival presents many of the world’s most visionary composers and musicians, artists whose work reaches for new heights and expands to new frontiers. The programming transcends generation and genre—bringing together iconic trailblazers and young iconoclasts performing and sometimes blending classical and contemporary composition, jazz, rock, folk traditions from throughout the world, pop, drone, avant-garde, ambient and beyond.

Previous performers and attendees have included John Luther Adams, Laurie Anderson, Art Ensemble of Chicago, Carla Bley, Anthony Braxton, Gavin Bryars, Bryce Dessner, eighth blackbird, Bela Fleck, Philip Glass, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Milford Graves, Jonny Greenwood, Mary Halvorson, Jon Hassell, Vijay Iyer, Kayhan Kalhor, Kronos Quartet, Alvin Lucier,  Roscoe Mitchell, Meredith Monk, Jason Moran, the National, the Necks, Joanna Newsom, Angel Olsen, Evan Parker, The Punch Brothers, Steve Reich, Terry Riley, Wadada Leo Smith, Sons of Kemet, St. Vincent, Supersilent, Swans, Wilco, and hundreds of others.”
