The Center for Global Education & Experience, and the Augsburg Theater Department are partnering with the Guthrie Theater to engage Augsburg students, faculty and staff in the production of “We Are Proud to Present” — part of the Level Nine Series, devoted to community dialogue about today’s most significant topics and questions.
Get your complementary tickets to this production in the Oyate Commons (Study Abroad/Away, ISSS and Multicultural Student Services suite) in Lower Level Christensen Center. Limit, 2 tickets per person. *See available dates/times below.
Find a seat. Any seat in the room. Watch carefully as an ensemble of six American actors — three black and three white – begins to stage a presentation about a genocide in 1900s colonial Africa. As they earnestly (and comically) stumble through their artistic process, attempting to remain true to the events in the past, they unwittingly unpack a personal and political firestorm of racial dynamics in America in the present. And even the best intentions can’t save them.
Critics have called We Are Proud to Present “90 minutes of original, enlightening, pulse-pounding theater” (Backstage), “devastatingly funny…dangerous and primal,” (The Washington Post), and “impressive, disturbing and thought-provoking” (San Francisco Chronicle).
*Tickets for the following dates/times:
Tuesday, February 21 at 7:30 p.m.
Wednesday, February 22 at 7:30 p.m.
Thursday, February 23 at 7:30 p.m.
Saturday, February 25 at 7:30 p.m.
Sunday, February 26 at 7:00 p.m.
Tuesday, February 28 at 7:30 p.m.
Saturday, March 4 at 1:00 p.m.
The theme of this production echos the focus of CGEE’s semester study abroad program in Southern Africa: Nation Building, Globalization, and Decolonizing the Mind.
