Home Grown: Playing: Guitar Charlottesville and Theater of the Oppressed

Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, David and Leslie welcome two guests who speak softly yet carry some big art. First Rafael Scarfullery comes on the show and is very patient as we commit ourselves to correctly pronouncing his name. Scarfullery is a professional classical guitarist, and he has started Guitar Charlottesville to promote classical and classical influenced guitar in Charlottesville. We talk about GuitarCharlottesville and get a chance to question our stereotypes with classical music. Next, Piedmont Virginia Community College’s Brad Stoller returns to the show, as it’s time for his annual Theater of the Oppressed Workshop. Brad describes what the “Theater of the Oppressed” is and how he and his partners (Matthew Slaats and Mecca Burns) work it into a workshop. We also talk to Brad about art’s role in addressing the need for safety. It’s the art that quietly moves this week on Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.

Home Grown is heard on 94.7 WPVC the Progressive Voice of Charlottesville, Sundays from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.
