    UTNT: Year of the Tiger

    Khristián Méndez Aguirre directs this performance, part of the UT New Theatre project, in which "a news anchor is preparing for a special transmission commemorating the year that has gone by, when she's visited by a tiger who really wants her to get the story straight, no matter what the cost." This investigation explores not only the impact of COVID-19 worldwide, but also civil unrest, police brutality, and the defeated Trump administration's war with truth.
    Thu. & Sat., March 25 & 27, 7:30pm. Donations accepted.

    The Social Distancing Festival

    This is an online community, as playwright and unstoppable force of creative nature Nick Green informs us, and it's been activated to "celebrate and showcase the work of the many artists around the world who have been affected by the need for social distancing that has come about due to the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19)." It's not Austin-based, this virtual and ongoing festival of all kinds of performance arts, but damned if there aren't a few talented Austinites among the eclectic mix.

    UTNT: Del Corazón Nace el Enjambre

    This portion of UT's annual New Theatre project is a virtual retelling of the tale(s) of la cucaracha. Activating the cockroach as a time-traveling hemispheric avatar, this practice interweaves stories of self-metamorphosis, resistance, and revolution to explore "how attuning to a theoretical brown commons might expand possibilities of freedom." Conceived and directed by Erica Patricia Saucedo.
    Thu.-Sun., March 25-28, 7:30pm. Donations accepted.
