Portland’s Profile Theatre to Present Sam Shepard Festival

Wednesday, August 27, 2014


Festival of One Acts

Festival of One Acts

Portland’s Profile Theatre presents a series of short plays by American playwright Sam Shepard this fall as part of a six-day festival.

Six different directors will take on nine of Shepard’s short plays and memoirs in its Festival of One Acts, which kicks off on Sept. 3. The festival will also feature live music, discussions and beer tastings.

The nine works will be split into two separate performances – Series A and Series B -- with audiences given the option to watch them separately or in weekend marathon packages. Among the works involved are "The War in Heaven," "The Curse of the Raven’s Black Feather," "Cowboys #2," "Evanescence" and "Shakespeare in the Alley."

“Sam Shepard’s short plays and stories give us a look inside the mind of a writer who can’t seem to stop writing,” said Profile Artistic Director Adriana Baer. “These plays, rarely, if ever, performed, make up a cross-section of Shepard’s writing life.”

Each performance will be preceded by live music performances, while postshow discussions, beer tastings and food carts will be part of the marathon weekend performances.

The cast for Festival of One Acts includes Beth Thompson, Nelda Reyes, Ty Hewitt, Andrés Alcalá, Chris Murray and Elizabeth Huffman. Directors are Pat Patton, Olga Sanchez, Matthew B. Zrebski, Jess K Smith, Rebecca Lingafelter and Bruce Hostetler.
Festival of One Acts will be performed on the Morrison Stage at Artists Repertory Theatre, 1515 SW Morrison Street in Portland. For more information, check out Profile Theatre’s website.

This W+K ad took the legacy, skill and training of young Tiger Woods all the way to the links in Scotland and the British Open.

Nike Evolution

The early Nike ads  were maybe not the most creative by today's creative standards, but the brilliance of the Nike Evolution ad was that it made a sneaker a piece of technology. It may be the first time that a sports product was sold with the idea that an athlete could gain an advantage through apparel or footwear.

Just Do It

The first time the iconic tagline, "Just Do it" was ever used in a Nike ad was in 1988. It was not Michael Jordan, but a guy named Walt Stack - take a look.

Mars Blackmon made Spike Lee, elevated Michael Jordan's cred, made millions for Nike and thrust W+K into the first class designation as a global ad agency.

Before Tiger there was no Nike Golf. This ad was the foundation to the development of the product line. Tiger was a different golfer: He was the first athlete in the game, strong and brilliant. No golfer ever looked so cool.

Michael Jordan may be the greatest basketball player ever. But what made him a marketing superstar was the Air Jordan positioning - the sub brand created by Wieden + Kennedy.

Bo knows. Bo Jackson may have been the greatest athlete of all time, but no one would have known if it were not for the amazing creative developed by Wieden + Kennedy for Nike. Bo knows and we know Bo.

Lil Penny

Lil Penny was in part the brainchild of creative Stacy Wall at W+K and rolled out Chris Rock as the alter ego to Orlando Magic guard Penny Hardaway. 

Claymation never played so well as the moment when Lil Penny hit on Tyra Banks.
