About the work:

Five original pieces give a glimpse into the reality of living in today’s world with a disability. Spoiler alert: unlike in the movies, it’s not always a happy ending.

Mixed Tape
A performative mix tape on multiracial identity

What does it mean to be mixed race in a society built on the rigid construction of race categories? How do these experiences shape people of mixed race? Through talented multiracial and multi-cultural performers, Mixed Tape aims to provide some answers to these, but is also not afraid to leave the audience questioning their preconceived notions.

Curated by Marisa Mosqueda
Ensemble: Nadia Isabella, Hunter Douglas, Gerald Boles, Destiny Hulke, and Gabriela Lucia "Lela" Nesheim

Merkur and Venera
A staged reading of a new play.

In the wake of global decay, five astronauts have enlisted in a one-way mission to restart civilization on a new planet. Each crew member holds onto the past in different ways; more than anything, they're all ready to have a fresh start. When a technical misstep results in the death of one of the personnel, the remaining astronauts struggle to grieve and push on at the same time. But maybe they're not as alone out here as they perhaps once thought.

An intergalactic exploration of loss, ghosts, and knowing.

Written by Evan Peterson
Direction and Dramaturgy by Ash Kaun
Cast: Ava Fojtik, Del Logeais, John DeWitt, Mitch Ross, Lauren Syme, Emma Gustafson, and Gabriel Benson

MERKUR AND VENERA contains strong language and depictions of death and subsequent grief. Please inquire with Evan Peterson (petersoe@augsburg.edu) if you're concerned about whether attending is right for you.
