Acclaimed Norwegian playwright Arne Lygre delves deep into what it means to be human in today’s world — and how our own interpersonal relationships have direct parallels to society as whole. I Disappear examines dislocation, memory, mortality, and identity in a poetic yet haunting drama that solidifies Lygre’s position as one of our most interesting and challenging dramatists.

A staged reading of Feast, a theatrical exploration with vibrant music and dazzling dance of the magnificent, cross-continental Yoruba culture. Followed by a discussion with Elyse Dodgson, International Director, The Royal Court Theatre.Originally produced in 2013 by the Young Vic and the Royal Court, this is the first presentation of Feast in the US.Afro-Caribbean traditions and ancestral lore come to life in this energetic work about three sisters who become divided at a crossroads on their way to a family dinner. From Nigeria in the 1700s through Brazil, Cuba, and the USA to London in 2013, the sisters survive by their spirits—spirits of courage, mischief, and incredible resilience.Feast was written by playwrights Yunior García Aguilera (Cuba), Rotimi Babatunde (Nigeria), Marcos Barbosa (Brazil), Tanya Barfield (US), and Gbolahan Obisesan (UK) and originally directed by Rufus Norris.
