Overture to a Thursday Morning
Act 1 & Act 2
Gather round for this two act one woman that show weaves a tapestry of music, physical play and imagery into a virtuosic piece of theatre, bringing light to intergenerational care.
From the imagination of performer/creator Kali Quinn, Overture to a Thursday Morning takes
audiences on a musical journey of three generations from an infant home in the1950’s to a present day nursing home. Through the creative use of household objects, live violin composition, and old slide show projections, along with her ability to voice young and old, angry and kind, Kali Quinn invites you to her unique and riveting theatrical experience that plays with both autobiographical and fictionalized material.
Camilla Rockwell of Burlington’s Full Circle Festival commends:
"Each performance by Kali Quinn generates a powerful magnetic field. One is overwhelmed with sheer awe at the range of her creativity, then captivated by the personalities and stories of her characters. Combining the joy and playfulness of a child with the wisdom of an ancient, Kali opens every heart in the room to a new level of compassion and understanding."

The Women's Freedom Center presents a free screening and discussion of the HBO award-winning documentary film:
Join us for a special screening and discussion of the HBO award-winning documentary Private Violence. Kit Gruelle – the domestic violence advocate featured in the film – will be at the screening.
Private Violence is a feature-length documentary that explores a simple, but deeply disturbing fact of American life: the most dangerous place for a woman in America is her own home. Every day in the US, at least 4 women are murdered by abusive (and often, ex) partners. The knee-jerk response is to ask: “why doesn’t she just leave?” Private Violence shatters the brutality of this logic.
