5/9-18 — Q STAGE 2019

20% Theatre Company Twin Cities presents four experimental world premiere performances created by local queer artists Taylor Seaberg, Dua Saleh, Keila Anali Saucedo, and D. Allen. Q-STAGE seeks to shift consciousness about queer identity through new performance work, facilitate conversation surrounding queer identities and queer art, and contribute to the growth of local, emerging queer artists. Q-STAGE 2019 new works include a mix of live music, theatre, video, movement, poetry, and storytelling.

One of the shows is "Weirdo Indigo Child," written and directed by Taylor Seaberg. It is a loosely autobiographical, audio/visual play about Evy Ngiri, a genderqueer Kenyan-American who grew up on military bases with an adoptive white father enlisted in the Air Force and a hyper-religious, assimilated Black mother.

$5-$25. Phoenix Theater, 2605 Hennepin Ave., Mpls.
