WHY:  Stella Kutz and Will Lemke have been friends since the late 90’s during their days at Franklin High. Stella is an accomplished dancer & choreographer, and built Yaw Theater as a studio and performance space focused on developing community and collaboration among artists. Will has been making films since his childhood, and opened Propadata Films in 2005 with a focus on exploring eye-opening stories. The two are excited to provide an event for local filmmakers and dancers to screen their works, and for Seattle theatergoers to support homegrown talent!
