Urban Tellers® | Immigrant & Refugee Edition

Our goal is to address the ‘othering’ that has escalated in our country by humanizing and building connection within our urban community.
Urban Tellers Immigrant and Refugee EditionPortland Story Theater is very excited to have Mexico (Fernando López García), Indonesia (Lily Waldman), Denmark (Philip Lund), Argentina (María Luisa Baragli Bevington), Iran (Yashar Vasef), and Somalia (Zahra Abukar) represented.
This program is made possible through the generous support of the Oregon Cultural Trust, The Collins Foundation, and The Old Church.

Lawrence Howard, Armchair Adventurer
Nansen of the North
Bend Show! Lawrence Howard tells Nansen of the North This show received rave reviews at its premiere in Portland and now we're bringing it to the Cascades Theatre in Bend! Before Amundsen, before Scott, before Shackleton, there was Fridtjof Nansen, the great Norwegian, the Father of polar travel, the one who showed them all how it could be done. Adventurer. Scientist. Explorer. Humanitaran. Nansen, who made the first ever crossing of Greenland on ski. Nansen, who locked his ship in the Arctic ice and tried to drift over the Pole. Nansen, who famously said that it is better to go skiing and think about God than it is to go to church and think about skiing. Join us in Bend for a brand new installment in the Armchair Adventurer series: Nansen of the North. Bob Hicks of Oregon Arts Watch wrote a beautiful review, Fridtjof Nansen's Polar Express. Read it here. Audience member, Holly Wenger, told us, "I was completely engulfed by the story and mesmerized by Lawrence's spectacular delivery. Loved the historic photo montage to peruse pre- or post-show. Great evening. Go see this show!"
