What Brings You Light?

submitted by dames@augsburg.edu

Augsburg’s Interfaith Scholars, a group of students who are interested in exploring the religious diversity of the Augsburg student body, the wider Twin Cities community, and the United States through interreligious dialogue and action, are organizing a campus wide art project focused on the question: “What brings you light?” This is an ambiguous prompt, as our goal is to engage with folks from many different religious, spiritual, and secular backgrounds and to showcase what is the “light” in our lives despite our different beliefs.

We ask the members of the Augsburg community to reflect on what brings them light, and to photograph if they are able. Perhaps it is a beloved pet, a significant other, a spice rack because you love cooking, a pocket bible, a special place you spend time in, etc. If it is not something you’re able to photograph, a selfie would be a great submission! Please send appropriate content, as these photos will be displayed at the “Interfaith Art Project Showcase” on April 4th in the Gundale Chapel, located in Hagfors from 5pm-8pm.

We are also asking for an audio clip with your photo submission. You can talk about what your light is or answer one of the following questions the Interfaith Scholars has compiled. Please send your photo submission to interfaith@augsburg.edu. You may submit a text description or an audio recording between 30 seconds and 90 seconds long answering any of these questions:
– What brings you light?
– What brings you meaning?
– What brings you joy?

Please feel free to interpret the question in whatever way resonates with you. Be creative, be spontaneous, and be intentional. Please let us know if you have any questions on this art project or are unsure on how to complete the submission.

We look forward to seeing (and hearing!) from you.

Best,
Augsburg Interfaith Scholars

“Passage” (A Staged Reading) is Seeking Actors and a Director

submitted by chamberh@augsburg.edu

My name is Halle Chambers. For a little over a year now, I have been writing a historical fiction play called “Passage” about Swedish immigration to Minnesota in the late nineteenth century. This semester, I will be presenting a staged reading of my play for theatrical honors. I am currently looking for anyone who might be interested in being a part of the project.

In “Passage,” we follow a small Swedish family from beginning to end of their journey to America. The story mostly centers on the son, Björn, who acts as the main narrator, chronicling the family’s journey in a journal. Many characters are double-cast for effect:

BJÖRN: Son. Early teens. Main Narrator. Also KIM
LYDIA: Mother. Also SOLVEIG
JACOB: Father.
CAROLINA: Daughter. 6-8 years old
KRISTINA: LYDIA’s younger sister. Left Sweden in earlier wave. Lives in Minnesota . Family’s connection in America. Also EMMA
LARS: Good Samaritan. Also DOCTOR/DRAGON
KIM: BJÖRN’s great-grandson. Also BJÖRN
EMMA: KIM’s older cousin and BJÖRN’s great-granddaughter. Also KRISTINA.
SOLVEIG: KIM and EMMA’s grandmother, and BJÖRN’s granddaughter. Also LYDIA
TEACHER: Strict authoritarian educator. Historically, likely male. Also NÄCKEN
NÄCKEN: “male water spirits who played enchanted songs on the violin, luring women and children to drown.’” Also TEACHER
DOCTOR: Helps family in emergency. Also LARS/DRAGON
VOICE: offstage voice. Also reads stage directions
DRAGON: Figure of CAROLINA’s imagination. Also LARS/DOCTOR

Currently, I’m looking for people who might be interested, but will need firm commitment ASAP. This will be a staged reading, and will have less time commitment than a full play. I’m especially interested in anyone who might want to play BJÖRN/KIM, as well as anyone who could direct the project, as my main focus will be on playwriting. If you are interest, my email is chamberh@augsburg.edu
