Local production company Twin Heroes just put the wraps on a summer of artistic events that invited audiences into works of compassion and common ground, anchored by Transcend: Queer Arts Festival in August. Local artists and producers Alex Vassos and Tulsi Florence produced Transcend, which featured three Ashland spaces given over to the glorious and outrageous, the profane and the sacred, the hilarious and just plain hairy. Dance, drag, spoken word, visual art, DJ, and theater all found room at the one-nighter, which took place at in and around the clutch of creative studios located at 280 E Hersey near downtown Ashland. Other Twin Heroes productions this season included three nights of string quartet in association with Josephine County’s Chinquapin Arts Center, featuring musicians from New York City, a night of chamber music, and a two-night concert in Ashland and Grants Pass, titled We Choose Love, honoring the journey of Taliesin Myrddin Namkai-Meche.
