Every First Monday at 9pm, VCA broadcasts from our living room to yours.
The fourth installment of Vashon Center for the Arts’ in-house all local late-night-talk-showish thing, “It’s Late on Vashon (iLOV)” will be livestreamed Monday, October 5th at the ungodly late hour of 9pm. This episode will highlight some truly original islanders with a taste of their unique performance styles.
On the show you are invited into a virtual living room where we get to know some of the many island gems through interviews with host Darragh Kennan and performances by our local artists.
The Octobers show’s theme, inspired from the reader board sign next to the north end Syrian food cart, is “Fun is not Cancelled.” and features the multi-talented husband and husband duo of David Mielke and Thomas Pruiksa and the phenomenal Arlette Moody.
David and Tom have been creating a series “Broadway in the Yurt” through the pandemic times that is completely original– With a welcoming Mr. Rogers-esque rapport they utilize intelligent wit, Broadway music, original writing, and poetry and pack it all into their charming island yurt. The work is playful and meaningfully layered. As they describe, “what started out simply as a means of creative expression turned out to be a way of deepening their marriage as they realized they could use the making of the videos to have fun collaborating while also working through issues of conflict and the myriad emotions arising under the challenges of lockdown, cultural transformation, and smoke.”
Arlette Moody will join the living room fun and give us a taste of her original song-making with her stunning voice and stage presence. Arlette sings in a trio called The Curvettes with Stephanie Murray, and Elaine Rochford. They write originals in collaboration with fellow band mate, Rick Doussett.
Only now is she willing to go out on a limb with herself as a musician with her current looping styles. She hopes you enjoy her mistakes!
