Tiptons: Mythunderstandings

Mythunderstandings explores the common threads of our individual experiences and the myths we tell ourselves and each other to make sense of them. How do people deal with Fate, Superstition, Love, Death and other facets of the Human Experience?

The heart of this audio/visual feast is centered around personal stories recorded from a diverse range of people, including a hoarder, a refugee, an adoptee, a bank teller, several grandmothers, and a northwest Salish tribe member, whose tales are woven together into a provocative tapestry presented with humor and pathos.

This collaborative performance features an award-winning creative team: film maker Adam Sekuler, director Lisa Halpern, and the Tiptons Sax Quartet collaborating with drummer Tarik Abouzied and Coastal Salish story-teller/musician Paul ‘Che oke ten’ Wagner.

This project was developed with support in part by 4Culture.
