Gamm Theatre resident artist to present show about children affected by AIDS/HIV
Feb. 5, 2015
Rhode Island-based actor, director and teacher Steve Kidd will perform his one-man show “Sigh/Omelas” – born from his work at a camp for children affected by HIV/AIDS – at 7 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 13, in the auditorium at the Community College of Rhode Island’s Liston Campus, One Hilton St., Providence.
This program is presented by the CCRI Performing Arts Department free of charge through funding from the Charles Sullivan Fund for the Arts and Humanities.
Kidd, an equity actor and resident artist at the Sandra-Feinstein Gamm Theatre and visiting professor at Brown University, is a 2008 winner of the Lewis Hine Award, given to 10 people in the country for their unheralded work on behalf of children.
“Sigh/Omelas” tells stories of children living with AIDS in a biased and uninformed society. Throughout the play, Kidd becomes different characters, flowing effortlessly from one to another. Excerpts from Ursula Le Guin’s short story about a flawed utopia titled “The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas” are integrated throughout the production.
Kidd will lead a question-and-answer discussion after his performance.
