Using shadow puppets and historical images from the Upper Columbia River’s fishing heritage, Virginia Marting and Moe Bowstern illustrate Ed Edmo’s poem ‘Celilo Fishermen.’ The collaboration is a haunting elegy for a 15,000 year way of life brought to an end by the construction of the Dalles dam and the subsequent flooding of Celilo Falls.
This performance is part of the Making Change Series of Events and Workshops at Paragon Gallery, happening between May 16th and May 27th.
Moe and Virginia will be teaching a workshop about shadow puppets earlier that day at the gallery. For more information about it and to sign up (require) you can go here.

When: Thursday May the 25th at 8 pm (doors open 7:30 pm, please be there early, performance is short and we don’t want you to miss it)
Where: Paragon Arts Gallery, 815 N Killingsworth St, Portland, OR 97217
