An original dance production Directed/Choreographed by David Wynen

Performing in Watters Theater
8 p.m. March 4–5 and 2 p.m. March 5–6, 2022

Sunset Mirage is about a time and a place and an encounter that coincides for just a
moment. It happens in a place that is hot, desolate and forgotten. A place that was once a visited destination on the highway, now broken and dusty with just the remnants of what was. We create a mirage as we start with nothing at sunset as the piece comes to life moment by moment from restlessness to the unstoppable impulse to celebrate and let loose.

By Qui Nguyen
Directed by Brian Gillespie
Performing in Watters Theater
8 p.m May 5–7 and 2 p.m. May 7–8 2022

She Kills Monsters tells the story of Agnes Evans as she prepares to leave her childhood home in Ohio after the death of her teenage sister, Tilly. Agnes stumbles upon Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons® notebook, and finds herself propelled into a journey of discovery and adventure in the imaginary world that was her sister’s refuge. In this dramatic comedy laden with ‘90s pop culture and a slew of demons and monsters, acclaimed playwright Qui Nguyen offers an action-packed homage to the geek and the warrior within us all.
