Shepherd Express: Summer Theater Around Wisconsin

There are many forms of “kinetic” art here, but two notable ones are film and cocktail-making. Of the former, the DKAF has a line-up of Oscar winners and nominees, Wisconsin-made films and the Rainn Wilson one-man show, Thom Pain, which kicks things off. Films include short animated fare, including Oscar nominee Garden Party, three shorts from Wisconsin filmmakers and English-language shorts selected from six different countries. The cocktail competition takes place on Tuesday, June 5, at the Wickman House in Ellison Bay, to select the official drink of the 2018 festival. Other events include live comedy, music and dance. June 11-15 at Björklunden, a pristine 425-acre estate on the shore of Lake Michigan.
