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

This event is only open to the CC campus

 Kristina-Wong---Sweatshop-Overlord.jpg

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.

Silence-Poster.png

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."
