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.
Originally from Syracuse, NY, 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
"Karen Oberlin’s extensively researched, beautifully executed tribute to the music of Elvis Costello... is a major leap forward into full-scale noir, an artistic demimonde that she illuminates with a dark blue glow." -- Stephen Holden, the New York Times
“Thrilling. Ms Oberlin is as lovely to look at as she is to hear”

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.
