Coming Home to Wild – In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre

In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre Presents,
Coming Home to Wild
New Works on Extinction and Resilience.

An immersive, intergenerational evening of stories, music, and community, with a light meal.
All ticket income will benefit Indigenous Environmental Network (IEN)
Coming Home to Wild reminds us: we are not the only ones wondering what wholeness feels like as the world burns. Through music, puppet performance, and a light community meal we will strengthen our collective resistance and resilience.

Experience three new puppet works by Julie Boada (Anishinabe), Rebekah Crisanta de Ybarra (enrolled Maya-Lenca), and Wild Conspiracy (Elle Thoni and company) who ask: in the face of extinction and climate catastrophe, what do our ancestors have to teach us about resilience? You are invited to join the circle as our ancestors, human and more than human, speak, sing, and soar. Encounter stories of our time that awaken rather than paralyze reminding us of the world as it truly is, in all its beauty and its pain.

Together we will answer the call to come back to the truth of who we are: wild.

Tickets on Sale Now
Sliding scale tickets are offered to everyone, no-questions-asked. “Pay what you can” tickets will be available at the door, pending availability. All tickets include a light meal.

The Rape of Lucretia

Arbeit Opera Theatre (AOT) presents a new production of Benjamin Britten’s poignant opera The Rape of Lucretia during Women’s History Month alongside Community Partners Women’s Advocates, Violence Free MN, and Advocates for Human Rights.

The Rape of Lucretia was the first of Britten’s chamber operas and is based upon the ancient Roman tragedy of Lucretia. The story unfolds during a time of war when Rome is ruled by an Etruscan King who ascended to power through force. It is in this hostile society that Lucretia’s body is used as a tool for political ambition and power.

The production will be presented in English with English supertitles.

*Audience note: Recommended for ages 16+. This production contains scenes of sexual violence, misogyny, and suicide. There will be a trained response therapist from Women’s Advocates on-site at each performance.
