WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

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.
