Outside The Room @ Denver Center for the Performing Arts

A family struggles to find humanity and normalcy in a world made uncertain and strange after the transformation and “othering” of one of their own. This physical theatre piece imagines what happens on the other side of the iconic door in Kafka’s Metamorphosis.

JANE/EYRE @ The Bakery

We are not here to flatter egotism, or prop up humbug; we are merely telling the [queer] story. We value what is good in the book; but we believe in the existence of other, and more vivid kinds of goodness.

Raven Jane

Rachel’s powerful vocals combine her Appalachian roots with a hard-rocking force. Mixed with the indie, post-rock-inspired experimentations of the band, they create a layered sound that aims for the gut and head.

Script – Missa Populi

A modern, theatrical interpretation of the Catholic Mass – created by Grapefruit Lab and Teacup Gorilla.

Missa Populi @ PackingHouse Center for the Arts

Combining the sacrifice, transcendence, blood, and circumstance of the Catholic Mass with history, live music, science, dance, literature, and pop culture to find a wholly modern communion experience. What we have left is our selves, broken and battered, but surviving together.
