Performance ensemble Strange Attractor produce roughly one show per year, and it’s always worth checking out, whether it’s a sea pageant on First Beach or a multisensory tour of an old East Side mansion. Their latest, part of the Providence Preservation Society’s new Sites & Stories Explored initiative, is a one night only choral haunting of the Earnscliffe Woolen Mill/Paragon Worsted Co., a compound of buildings just outside Olneyville Square where women produced wool between 1898 and 1960. Chrissy Wolpert (Assembly of Light Choir) directs a large chorus of women, non-binary, and two spirit people in songs dedicated to the ghosts of those women who worked in the mills.
The buildings aren’t currently safe for visitors, so the haunting will commence in the parking lot and the whole thing is outside. Bring a chair, if you think you might need one, and dress for the weather.
