Drums, dance and culture celebrate North Dakota’s bond with Japan, and more this weekend – InForum


from Thursday to Sunday

Nearly 30 years after it was first staged, the drama “Keely and Du” is enjoying new life after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. In the play, which opens Thursday at Theater B, Keely is a pregnant rape victim seeking an abortion who has been kidnapped by anti-abortion activist Du. In conversations, the two explore the ideas of individual freedoms and religious activism, among other issues. Can open dialogue help diametrically opposed people begin to understand each other?

Saturday

When people think of North Dakota’s relationship with other countries, they may think of ancestral lands in Germany or Scandinavia.

Saturday sees a different kinship with Rhythm of Japan in ND: Celebrating the Friendship of North Dakota and Japan, held from 2-4 p.m. at North Dakota State University’s Festival Concert Hall. The event, hosted by the Japanese America Society Minnesota, opens with a drum performance by Tsukasa Taiko, as well as remarks from Governor ND Doug Burgum, Consul General of Japan in Chicago, Hiroshi Tajima and Bob Sinner, President of SB&B Foods. The concert is free, but online registration is required.

John Prine’s death in 2020 hit music fans in Fargo-Moorhead hard, as the folksinger had a strong following here. His brother, Billy Prine, tries to ease the pain by playing the late great singer/guitarist’s songs and showing that more than one member of this family knows how to tell a story.

Backed by the Prine Time Band, Billy performs some of his brother’s best-known songs and tells the story behind them beginning at 7 p.m. Sunday at the Sanctuary Events Center. Tickets are $29.50 and $44.50.

Sunday

Great Wu.jpg

Once used to the city, it seems like it’s been a while since The Big Wu has passed.

Jam band Twin Cities are back on the road to celebrate their 30th anniversary, so it’s only natural that the five-piece band would return. Things and places have changed, so the Wu brings his mix of harmonies and improvisation to The Hall at the Fargo Brewing Company at 8 p.m. on Sundays. Tickets are $18 for this show on ID only.
