Gentrification and Portland’s racist 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. This latest site-specific commission challenges us as a community, drawing on personal stories from the Albina neighborhood to truly listen to and acknowledge marginalized voices while addressing issues of whiteness, privilege, and discrimination.
