"Red Planet Respite"
Scientists from the School of Earth and Space Exploration helped devise this piece about life on Mars
Some 30 ASU scientists worked with San Diego theatre company Circle Circle dot dot to inspire this piece about the prospect of life on Mars. The play is an imaginary tale set in 2044, in which serious science is thrust to the background as commercial enterprises create the first luxurious resort on the red planet. Circle Circle dot dot developed this original production with the School of Earth and Space Exploration and the Mars Rover team at ASU.
World Premiere. Directed by Soroya Rowley and Katherine Harroff, a 2008 graduate of the School of Film, Dance and Theatre. The visiting company is part of MainStage Alumni Artist's Series and is known for creating works inspired by people in the community. Past works looked at mall Santa Clauses, Roller Derby ladies and drag queens (www.circle2dot2.com). If you are interested in learning about Mars, check out http://redplanet.asu.edu.
"No Place Like Home"
Book by Soroya Rowley*
Music & Lyrics by Soroya Rowley* & Andrew Steele
The extreme hardship of being young and homeless is something most of us may witness within our community, but will likely never experience first-hand or fully comprehend. Homelessness is constantly referred to as one of our communities' biggest social issues, but few can actually empathize with the issues of the population or have had the chance to understand how one can reach such dire situations of economic hardship.
This summer, Community-Based Theatre Company Circle Circle dot dot will take audiences into the world of Daisy, a young, disabled woman who unexpectedly finds herself in exactly that hardship, and must do whatever it takes to survive. No Place Like Home is a World Premier Acoustic-Musical Written and Directed by Soroya Rowley and Andrew Steele, based on true stories of residents of PATH (People Assisting The Homeless) in San Diego. Join us for an informative, entertaining, and touching perspective of another side of our humanity. Discover the journey some must take to the place we call home.
