{elbow room} presents: “Recall,” an evening of original performance followed by discussion featuring solo performance-in-progress by Margo Lukens and new work by William S. Yellow Robe Jr., Saturday, Feb. 3, at 7 p.m. in the Fallout Shelter space of Waterfall Arts, 256 High St.

Lukens will perform "FATTY: or, Why White People Are Afraid of Indians," a solo show based in memoir by a middle-age white woman thinking about race and oppression. This is a work-in-progress developed during a recent sabbatical from UMaine, where Lukens teaches English. She has performed with Penobscot Theatre Company in Bangor (“Calendar Girls”; “Cinderella”; “Sunday In the Park With George”), where she recently has begun to study improv.

Award-winning playwright, actor, author, director, educator and poet Yellow Robe's works, exploring identity and cultural authenticity, have been performed in venues across the United States including Penumbra Theatre Company in St. Paul; the Public Theater in New York; the Trinity Repertory Company in Providence, R.I.; and the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C.

Yellow Robe is a member of the Assiniboine and Sioux Tribes of the Fort Peck Indian Reservation. Some of his numerous works are included in “Grandchildren of the Buffalo Soldiers and Other Untold Stories,” published by UCLA American Indian Studies Center; and in “Where the Pavement Ends; Five Native American Plays,” University of Oklahoma Press.

The performances will include adult content and are not suitable for children or teens. Donations will be accepted, with all proceeds to benefit Waterfall Arts. This is the fourth {elbow room} event. A co-production with Waterfall Arts, {elbow room} is a performance series and space for incubating original performance, storytelling and theater experiments for mature audiences.
