Wild Beauty – a Day 4 offering
“a riot is the language of the unheard.” –Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Gearing up for MLK Day and Wild Beauty, we thought it’d be helpful to share some resources and food for thought and soul, to prepare for a space of reflection. To start, Gabrielle has offered this interview between Mike Wallace that took place 3 years after the “I have a dream” speech, with thoughts on his commitment to non-violence, the then very recent uprisings and riots taking place across the U.S., black power, and so much more. Read the interview on CBS.
What is a riot to you? What languages do you use to connect, to commune, to resist, to love, or rebel?
Wild Beauty opens space for four core black artists–Gabrielle Civil, Randy Ford, Neve Mazique-Bianco, and Fox Whitney–to work/ play together in an MLK ritual/ black movement intensive.
Access Velocity is Velocity’s initiative to support independently produced performances in our flexible Founders Theater. This program allows local artists to rent our spaces and produce their performances affordably for Seattle audiences. All ticket sales, event content, and production is run independently through the artists. Learn more.
OUR TICKETING POLICIES
The below policies only apply to Velocity-produced events only. Tickets to Access Velocity performances are handled directly by the individual producer. If you’ve purchased tickets for a performance that is not Velocity-produced, we recommend checking the individual producers’ policies.
Q: Where do I go to pick up my tickets?
A: You can pick up your tickets at our Box Office. Please arrive at least 5 minutes prior to show time. We do not offer late seating.
Q: What happens if I’m late?
A: All tickets that are not claimed by show time will be released to our Wait List.
Q: How does your Wait List work?
A: If there is a sold-out performance, we will create a waiting list 1 hour prior to show time. If you are hoping to see a performance and do not already have tickets, you can put your name on the waiting list by going to our Box Office in person. We will call available seats no more than 15 minutes prior to curtain. We give wait list priority to Friends of Velocity.

Q: Can I exchange my ticket?
A: If you want to go to the same performance on a different date we can do a ticket exchange for free—but only if there are tickets available. Also! Certain events or promotions are not eligible for exchanging your ticket. Please contact our box office at least 24 hours before the original performance date. All exchanges are subject to availability. You can contact our box office here: 206-325-8773 or email@example.com
Q: I can’t attend a performance or exchange my ticket, can I just donate my ticket?
A: Yes! You can donate your ticket by returning your tickets to Velocity as a donation. You can also receive a tax deduction for the price of the tickets. Your donation will be acknowledged by mail or email. Please contact our box office at least 24 hours before the performance.

Under special circumstances, tickets for canceled events may be refunded or exchanged upon notification from the Box Office. You may also return these tickets as a donation to Velocity and receive a tax deduction for the price of the tickets.

Q: There’s been a change in the performance I was going to watch! What happened?
A: We get that performance changes do not always work out for everyone. We acknowledge that artists, programs, casts, dates, and prices are subject to change due to the many variable factors that go into creating any production. We hope you still attend performances and experience the incredible work of the artists in our community.
