Performance Season

Kristina Wong, Sweatshop Overlord: A Work-in-Progress Reading by Kristina Wong

Block 1, Thursday, September 2 at 6:30 PM
Palmer Tent West

This event is only open to the CC campus


Get in on the ground floor of Kristina Wong, Sweatshop Overlord, her brand-new solo theater work that will have gone from lived experience to fully realized off-Broadway production in just 20 months-- an unusually short period to hatch an original theater work about our unprecedented times.  The show chronicles Kristina’s pandemic journey from out of work performance artist to Overlord of the Auntie Sewing Squad-- a national mutual aid sewing collective that sewed and distributed masks during the pandemic for the most vulnerable of communities.  Kristina Wong will be reading excerpts of this play-in-progress and share her process in making this show while living it. It will premiere at New York Theater Workshop in November.

Fall Official Theater Dept. Production: Silence

Written by Moira Buffini, Directed by Caitlin Lowans of Theatreworks
Block 3, Performances November 5-7 and 12-14
Norberg Theatre, Cornerstone Arts Center


A dark comedy for dark times. At the turn of the last millennium in the nowhereville north of England, a ragtag group--lady, lord, handmaid, warrior and priest-- sets out on a journey to safety, with a despotic ruler in hot pursuit. Part epic road trip, part medieval romance, part gender explosion, part black comedy, this play explores how a person might forge their path through the world, "living, as we do, on the edge of destruction."

Boy mother / faceless bloom is a multimedia performance work combining large-scale sculptural and scenic design, live and recorded music, and embodied movement to tell the story of a young boy who learns he will be a mother. Drawing upon the combined, personal mythologies of Nengudi, Kwon, Nishimura, and Kohl, Boy mother / faceless bloom explores transgender identity, parenthood and ancestral lineage in a time of planetary crisis, as well as the spiritual legacies of colonialism, imperialism, and ideologies of domination.
