It’s Thursday or Friday night. The hes have gone to bed. Two sisters await one period. Spoiler alert: one of them is pregnant. With twins. In the shes, six women representing four generations collapse corporeal time — from in utero to beyond death — to celebrate sex and sisterhood, and to decide once and for all if souls exist.

Geona, a nonbinary recluse, is caressing their collarbone to BDSM porn when suddenly a rave spills off their computer screen. In a swirl of neon the ghost of their Muscogee Creek great-grandmother appears who descends with us into an immersive, operatic digital fantasia queering 200 years of American history.

A and Bea is a deep, messy, epic love story—as most love stories are. When these two women of color met twenty years ago there were oceans to cross. In the wake of her partner’s death, Abbie attempts to restitch their fractured history, tracing across time and space. Along with some bumps and bruises, she discovers the poetry and dissonance that was their relationship.

Featuring Johnathan Dougan, Sauda Jackson, Rae Mizrachi, Rayshaun SandlinSabra Shelly, John Teresi

Steeped in the modern mysticisms of David Bowie and Hilma af Klint, Animus Anima//Anima Animus invites the audience to experience an intimate chamber play that quickly unravels into a celestial fantasia of bodies and color. Watch two sisters struggle to sleep while shadows dance around them, uttering nonsensical absurdities while they parse what really matters to them. As the night bleeds into twilight, the ascended masters come to ask them: who are you at 3 am and what do you want?
