At the depths of the human experience is the desire to survive. We spend our lives pushing through obstacles towards something bigger than ourselves. When we know that we have reached the end of this great struggle, we want to leave something behind – some artifact that will tell people centuries later that we existed. Theatre Zoetik’s Aragrad is a physical theatre piece that collages physical memories, dreams, aspirations and spoken text in an allegory about what it means to be human and the line between good and evil. Aragrad will run in ACE 207 on: Thursday, April 4 at 7:30 (PWYC preview) | Friday, April 5 at 7:30 | Saturday, April 6 at 2:00 and 7:30. Email to reserve a ticket and you can pick it up/pay at the door.
