ALAXSXA | ALASKA

October 5th and October 6th

On Sale Monday, August 13th at 10:00 AM

Spellbinding history and cross-cultural encounter in the 49th state

“Cultures collide and coexist in Ping Chong + Company’s, sumptuous anthropological collage ALAXSXA | ALASKA This theatrical feast bursts with vitality as vast as its subject.” — Time Out New York

Created by innovative theater masters Ping Chong + Company’s, ALAXSXA | ALASKA (uh-LUCK-shkuh) weaves puppetry, video, recorded interviews, and yuraq (Yup’ik drum and dance) in a collage of striking contemporary and historical encounters between Alaska Native communities and newcomers in our state. Performers Ryan Conarro, Gary Upay’aq Beaver (Central Yup’ik), and puppeteer Justin Perkins reveal little-known histories — at times humorous, at times tragic — and juxtapose them against their own personal histories as “insider” and “outsider” in The Last Frontier. Experience intimate encounters with a multimedia performance as epic as the changing landscapes of Alaska.

Since 1975, New York-based Ping Chong + Company has produced theatrical works addressing the important cultural and civic issues of our times, striving to reach the widest audiences with the greatest level of artistic innovation and social integrity.
