Gentrification in Portland and the city’s redlining past go under the microscope in Darrell Grant’s jazz-classical chamber opera, Sanctuaries, with a libretto by two-time National Poetry Slam Champion Anis Mojgani and directed by Alexander Gedeon. Focusing on personal stories from the Albina neighborhood, this latest site-specific commission challenges Portland as a community to truly listen to and acknowledge marginalized voices while addressing issues of white privilege, racial equity and inclusion, and economic disparity.
