Home: a simple four-letter word of immense complexity that means both the same and completely different things to all people. Local performance artists Kima and Dasha Kelly Hamilton will explore that small yet mighty word in their upcoming piece "Home," bringing forward ideas about sovereignty, history, community, identity and more to the Marcus Center's fourth floor Rehearsal Hall A tonight at 7 p.m.
Correlating with the 50th anniversary of Milwaukee's Fair Housing March, "Home: An Exploration of Sovereignty, History and Home" is a multimedia celebration of humanity hoping to tie together the many diverse discussions and conversations currently taking place about the city, the neighborhoods and the communities that all share a place in our definition of the word.
Joining Kima and Dasha Kelly Hamilton – the latter an HBO "Def Poetry Jam" alum as well as one of two individuals named Milwaukee Artist of the Year by the City of Milwaukee Arts Board in 2016 – on stage for this show are fellow Milwaukee musicians, artists, spoken word performers, dancers and more including Bennie Higgins, Alexis Luna, B Free, Evan Sandherr, Brian Demetri and Kimi Evelyn.
Tickets for the one-night-only show are on sale now at the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts box office for $15. For more information on the performance, visit the Marcus Center's website.
As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.
When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
