Here is a sample of the talk-back segment from “Steady,” produced by Ryan Hope Travis. The clip will give you a sense of awareness for the many flexible, organic adventures involved in community theater. Also check out the golden-voiced solo by actor Kamani Grate.

As a director Ryan Travis is prolific. He has conceived and directed numerous productions since we interviewed him a few years ago.

Ryan’s pace is frenetic, but the quality of the work never suffers.  The actor/director/professor knows how to explore and present timely topics with the right dusting of theatrical polish. His latest offering is “Steady,” an hour-long, song-dialogue-dance-dramatization of the past, present and future of Civil Rights, with a particular emphasis on the 54-mile march from Selma to Montgomery.

There were two shows for “Steady” over the weekend at The Art Rage Gallery.  What made the Art Rage production unique was the poignant visual reminder of the Selma adorning the walls, thanks to the compelling documentary photographs of Matt Herron.  Having photos of Dr. King, John Lewis, Doris Wilson, and others as part of the set design provided inspiration for the audience as well as the actors.

“Steady”  has its next showing at Onondaga Community College on Monday.

Herron’s images will be on display at Art Rage until the end of March.

Social Media Breakfast Syracuse #10 Panel (with moderator Patrick Finlon, left)

Social Media Breakfast Syracuse #10 Panel: Kimberley McCoy, Rachel Boucher, Matthew De Bellas and Sarah Massett (with moderator Patrick Finlon, left).

This kind of collaboration is encouraging.

We finally got to attend a Social Media Breakfast here in town. The group had its latest meeting at Syracuse Stage on Thursday, and the focus was how arts organizations engage online.  Participants included representatives from The Red House, The Everson Museum, CNY Arts and Art Rage.

The discussion ranged from generating unique content and boosting awareness to using “gamification” (rewards) and data collection methods to gain new followers/supporters. 

What was most impressive is that you didn’t have to be a savvy social media manager or represent an art venue to pick up pearls of wisdom from this conversation.   Quick, power-packed, yet very filling, it was like breakfast for your head.

This public art piece, located on the Hawley-Green neighborhood,is an homage to all things temporary. Torgerson’s work has also been displayed in NYC and Minneapolis.  She said the wheat paste works last from a few weeks to a few months, depending on the weather. Locally we’ve seen Torgersons’s pieces in Little Italy and Midtown.
