As a Non-Profit, Red House Arts Center holds many fun, arts-focused events to help raise money to fund all of our unique programming and education that takes place throughout the year. Those, as well as special events that are in partnership with Redhouse in the area, will be featured here.
The Sphinx Organization is a national non-profit founded in 1996 by Aaron P. Dworkin, a graduate of the Interlochen Arts Academy and the University of Michigan (B.B. and M.M.). A violinist himself, Mr. Dworkin founded the organization to help overcome the cultural stereotype of classical music, and to encourage the participation of Blacks and Latinos in the field. The mission of the Sphinx Organization: We transform lives through the power of diversity in the arts

Foster Care To Fabulous
Between the ages of 14 and 17, Patrick Burns lived with four foster families in Oakland, CA. His self-written, self-performed musical details this experience with a plethora of jaw-dropping and side-splitting anecdotes, and a bizarre cast of horrific, hilarious, and ultimately heartbreaking characters.

KAREN OBERLIN has been a fan of Elvis Costello since her early teens, when his young angst, disillusionment and vulnerable heart seemed perfectly in synch with her own. For her new show, Karen brings forth a collection of material from her more than 30 years of following his eclectic, fascinating career to express some of the most intriguing elements of this unique singer/songwriter’s work and life. www.karenoberlin.com

Orson Welles/ Shylock
This unique blend of comedy and tragedy and fact and fantasy chronicles Welles’ many unsuccessful attempts to play the role of Shylock from Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice and the surprising and heartbreaking ways that his life overlapped with the characters. “Endlessly entertaining, Chiorini’s Orson Welles/Shylock takes listeners on a roller-coaster ride through time, space, and the mind of Orson Welles, cutting (as radio can do) from decade to decade and location to location with a word, and (with only four actors on stage playing all the parts) assembling a Shakespeare-sized cast of real (and imaginary) people.”

Plunge is a solo work that combines the use of body puppets, marionettes, masks,
dance, and music. Utilizing rhythmic music, dancers, body puppets and larger then life
marionettes, LOCO 7 weaves a choreography which extends beyond the body of the dancer. Dealing with themes such as South American Culture & History, the immigrants’ experience and urban life, Restrepo creates animated movement, in an ever-changing and surreal
environment, bringing the stage to life.
