Alaxsxa | Alaska is a theatrical collage of multimedia, puppetry, and Central Yup'ik drum and dance, illuminating striking moments of cross-cultural encounter in the epic, changing landscapes of Alaska.
Directed by Ping Chong and Ryan Conarro, Alaxsxa | Alaska features Conarro and Gary Upay'aq Beaver (Central Yup'ik), along with puppeteer Justin Perkins. The three performers use movement and puppetry to reveal a series of little-known historical narratives of collisions between people and cultures in Alaska. These histories — at times humorous, at times tragic —juxtapose against Beaver and Conarro's own personal memories as "insider" and "outsider" in the Last Frontier.
In the latest installment of composer-performer Michael Harren's multimedia performance, The Animal Show, Harren blends humor with candor to convey the importance of keeping all animals safe from harm. Through stories, music, and video from his residency at Tamerlaine Farm Animal Sanctuary and activism on the road, The Animal Show is a thoughtful exploration of humans' relationships with nonhuman animals.
Building a Real Boy sheds light the critical issues surrounding freedom of information and privacy on the internet. This show is devised from Aaron Swartz's writing, blog, and journal entries, interviews with colleagues, friends, and family, and court transcripts. Building a Real Boy has been created collaboratively by a team of performers, directors, writers, and designers. Since computer programming and social networking were a key component to Swartz's life, we are experimenting with utilizing social networking and new media during the development and performance of this piece. Elements of this piece will include live tweeting from audience members in the space and around the world.
Actor and cabaret singer Stephanie Trudeau will perform a return engagement of her docu-cabaret, Chavela: Think Of Me. She introduced the show there last spring and has been invited back in response to the appreciation of her audience and an enthusiastic review.
The piece, written and performed by Trudeau, is more than a musical cabaret based on the songs of legendary Mexican singer Chavela Vargas. It is also a documentary theater project that traces the famed ranchera singer's artistic evolution and the key relationships of her life. These relationships include musical mentor José Alfredo Jiménez (the world's greatest composer of ranchera songs), the painters Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo, the great Cuban courtesan Macorina, and the producers, notably Pedro Almodóvar, who enabled her comeback at age 74 after a 15-year battle with alcoholism.
La MaMa will celebrate Charles Ludlam and the Theatrical Ridiculous Company's legacy and work with live panelists, video tributes, and the presentation of rare footage and photos in the Ellen Stewart Theatre.
Moderator: Sean F. Edgecomb (author of Charles Ludlam Lives! Charles Busch, Bradford Louryk, Taylor Mac, and the Queer Legacy of the Ridiculous Theatrical Company)
Panelists include: Everett Quinton, Black Eyed Susan, Lola Pashalinski, John Jesurun & Taylor Mac
Conceived, written, and directed by Murielle Borst-Tarrant [Kuna/Rappahanock Nations] Musical direction by Kevin Tarrant [Hopi/Hochunk Nations]

Music and libretto by Gary S. Fagin Includes world premiere screening of documentary film Guns by Nick Davis
Tackling the impact of gun violence in the United States, The Struggle to Forgive: Confronting Gun Violence in America is a new musical dramatic work that hauntingly gives voice to those involved in the gun debate — victims and their families, law enforcement and perpetrators, politicians and gun enthusiasts.
The libretto is based on audio, video, and written accounts of those living with the aftermath of gun violence or the loss of a loved one, as well as news reports of mass shootings, recordings of 911 calls, and the gun control debates.
Guns tells the interconnected stories of individuals whose lives have been dramatically affected by guns. Complex and powerful, the film will tell stories that are not as simple as they first appear — stories full of richness, irony, and emotional truth — and in so doing, tells the sweeping story of an Issue that defines our time.
Enter The Portal and follow Dante through epic deserts and alpine mountains as he seeks the beautiful and mysterious Beatrice while being pursued by his inner demons.

It not only entertains but also immerses the audience in a journey of transcendence and empowerment.
