Kegan Marling: Jump ship mid way

Grown up. It’s what we become once we take on a certain degree of social responsibility – for a partner (marriage), a child (parenthood) or a community (military duty). But for many queer youth, there can be many obstacles to obtaining this cultural acceptance. We grow into an understanding of how the world works with few models of how to transition from gay youth to gay adult to gay elder. Or what it even means to be a “gay adult.” Jump ship mid way imagines some of the unique paths to community acceptance navigated by gay men, and some of the traps and treasures of a queer community which frequently elevates youth and which is uncertain of a need for “adulthood.”

Cast: James Graham, Kegan Marling, Mica Sigourney, Nol Simonse

Dandelion Dancetheater: Friend

Friend is an homage to Sharon Mussen, a close friend of Director Eric Kupers who passed away recently, and also an investigation of the nature of friendship. Kupers directs a highly diverse ensemble in looking inward to discover hidden longings and ambivalences about friendship. The group of collaborating performers include dance, music, theater and design artists with and without disabilities—each making crucial contributions to the foundation of the project.

Cast: Cristina Carasquillo, Patrick Cashman, Patrick Cress, Dana DeGuzman, Chris Gallegos, Dorine Hoeksema, Mickey Kay, Eric Kupers, Heather Lukens, Matt Payne (April 2nd only), Keith Penney, Mantra Plonsey, Anne-Lise Reusswig, Sue Roginski, David Ryther, Stacz Sadowski
