Thursday, Sept. 16, 2021

noon - 1 p.m.

Theater and Dance Building 202

Speaker:  Lucas Erickson from On Stage


On Stage will be facilitating discussions this fall for classes based around the play Animate (September 16 – 26, 2021).  The play will be presented at the Como Zoo and produced by Mixed Blood Theatre.  Created by Ken LaZebnik and Jack Reuler, Animate was created through a year of listening sessions with zookeepers, animal collection curators, zoo directors, primatologists and zoo detractors.  Each scene in the play takes place in a different area in the zoo!  The play deals with race and philanthropy, species preservation, conservation, education, etc.
