Prepare to be captivated when Harvest Moon, an honored Quinault storyteller and Master Basket Weaver, comes to the KALA stage November 17th. A seasoned performer with decades of experience, Moon uses her voice, facial expressions, and body gestures to bring archetypal characters to life, transporting audiences through a veil of time into ancient realms.
Whether it be a campfire, library space, stage or movie set, Moon seamlessly adapts to her surroundings. She began TV and film work in the ‘90s, starting as a stand in for actress Elaine Miles on Northern Exposure. She’s appeared in 13 films since, including First Cow, Showing Up, and The Dark Divide. Moon was harvesting cedar bark in the woods she when got an audition call for The Dark Divide. “The audition was in Portland. I missed a day of getting cedar bark, but I got the part.”
Moon’s upcoming KALA performance is sponsored in part by the Astoria Visual Arts, and a grant by the Oregon Humanities, as part of the AVA’s exhibit (opening 11/11), Portrait of Eugene Landry, An Artist, A Time and a Tribe. Moon has a familial connection to Eugene Landry. “He was my uncle.”
Harvest Moon will be introduced by special guest author Robert Michael Pyle.
Doors open at 7pm. Show at 7:30pm. Tickets $20. Ages 16+ welcome. General seating. Full Bar. KALA is located at 1017 Marine Dr. in Astoria. 503.338.4878
