The Big Deal: Cara Mia Theatre Presents Where Earth Meets The Sky

by Zoee Acosta 4 Apr 2018 8:30 AM

Presented by the Cara Mia Theatre, Where Earth Meets the Sky, engages the power of sci-fi through an unapologetic political lens. In the tradition of indigenous futurism, this play portrays visions of a future in which queer people of color and women are not just present, they are active agents and protagonists in the healing and reunification of the earth – a large step away from the traditional representations of the sci-fi genre.

In this story, the effects of racism, sexism, consumer culture, capitalism, industrial technology and Eco-violence intensify. Consequently, the separation of the earth’s people and the planet is inevitable, segregating those who desperately chose to hold on to oppressive forms of power and luxury, and those who chose to radically stand with the earth and reach back to the indigenous wisdom of their people. A wisdom that for so long was condemned, erased, and vilified. Through the eyes of indigenous storytellers, this play invites its audience to consider an alternative future by asking us to revisit the harsh realities of our present and our past. This play invites us to consider our role in that future through understanding how our individual choice is connected to the larger collective fate of our world.
