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.
