The Stimson-Green Mansion was built in 1901 on Seattle’s First Hill as a private residence, designed by famed Northwest architect Kirtland Cutter. The mansion has a storied history, with connections to prominent Seattle families Stimson/Bullitt and Green. Nowadays, it serves as the headquarters for the Washington Trust for Historic Preservation, and is available for tours and events.
For the first two Friday and Sunday evenings in November, the Stimson-Green Mansion will be transformed into an immersive, self-guided performance by Cabin Fever Dance Company entitled Heart Content.
Heart Content is a project of the Site Specific Program, which aims to interpret King County’s historic places through an artistic lens. Keep an eye on the Cabin Fever blog, as they release videos from their It’s a Process series leading up to the first performance, offering a peak into their process for creating this new work.
Stimson-Green Mansion, 1204 Minor Ave, Seattle
Friday, November 8 & 15, 7:30pm
Sunday, November 10 & 17, 4:30pm
After spending several months in the Stimson-Green Mansion and interviewing the mansion caretaker, Cabin Fever has developed Heart Content, a series of “choose your own adventure” style performances – consisting of maps and stories handed to audience members upon arrival. Roving performances and installations will take place throughout the evenings within the mansion.
