Swedish theater group Boulevardteatern presents the enchanting story of Guji Guji.
The story begins with a crocodileegg that lands in a ducks' nest. Out pops Guji Guji — a small crocodile that becomes raised as a duck. Mother Duck doesn't care that Guji is different from the other young ones. They are her children and she loves them all, just the way they are. Problems arise when Guji Guji meets two big crocodiles. They declare that Guji is a bloodthirsty duck-eating crocodile — just like them! Guji Guji is a tale about differences and similarities, love, friendship, and thinking for yourself.
Freely adapted from the book Guji Guji by Chih Yuan Chen (Taiwan). From 4 years and up.

The Plurality of Privacy Project in Five-Minute Plays (P3M5) is a transatlantic theater project initiated to explore the value of privacy. In cooperation with the Goethe-Institut Washington, theaters across the United States and Europe have commissioned playwrights to write five-minute plays themed around the question, "What does privacy mean to you in the digital age?" The results are being presented in different formats by a network of theaters between January 2017 and June 2018. These performances, staged readings, and community forums create an artistic and cultural dialogue centered around varying American and European understandings of privacy.
Note: Performance dates and locations vary. For more information, visit the Goethe-Institut website (URL below).
The Anthropologists' This Sinking Island, directed by artistic director Melissa Moschitto, celebrates the courage of refugee communities impacted by climate change. Set in a landscape created from repurposed materials, This Sinking Island uses movement, masks, and live music to tell the story of a family who must leave all they've ever known in search of a new home. Crafted from research by the company with sea level rise science and climate refugee testimony, performances will feature a dynamic ensemble including resident actors Mariah Freda and Brianna Kalisch as well as PJ Johnnie and Chad Anthony Miller. "The time for cross-generational conversations is now," says artistic director Melissa Moschitto. "Our goal is to use theatre to build a bridge between understanding climate science and imagining a better and more just future. Tackling today's pressing issues with the spirit of youth can inspire hope and empathy."
