Theater Department Professor Beliza Torres Narváez will perform her solo show
“Resabios de Amargura or that bitter cabaret” in double feature with storyteller Javier Morillo’s “Broken English Mother Tongue.”
When: Thu Feb 20- Sat 22 @ 7:30 pm and Sun Feb 23 @ 2pm.
Where: Avalon Theatre (HOTB) 500 E Lake St, Minneapolis
Tickets: $18 (general), $15 (Student and Senior) and $12 (groups of 10+).
The event runs for 2 1/2 hours with an intermission.
In “Broken English, Mother Tongue,” Morillo weaves personal stories of growing up on a US Army base in Puerto Rico with the history of the Island’s complicated relationship to the United States. Note: the audience may be quizzed on its knowledge of Puerto Rican history—but don’t worry—like Puerto Rico, all answers are, well, complicated.
Beliza’s “Resabios de Amargura or that bitter cabaret” is a campy mixture of song, comedy, mistranslations and social critique that follows the story of Lola Amapola, a diva-wannabe that loves her country Puerto Rico but feels attracted to the U.S. mainland. She follows the “American Dream,” but things don’t turn out quite as planned. Will she stay in the U.S.? Will she go back home? Is there a home to go back to?

My name is Brooke and I am a member of the Augsburg Women’s Hockey team. On February 14th at 7pm and February 15th at 2pm, we will be hosting a Concussion Awareness Weekend in support of the Headway Foundation in Ed Saugstad Arena. The Headway Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that aims to promote a safer sports culture, provide resources for patients, and enhance concussion evaluation protocols and accessibility. Many people don’t realize how concussions affect physical, mental, and emotional health. During our games, we will have a poster with information about concussions, stickers, and an area for donations. If you aren’t able to donate that is completely ok! We would still love for people to come to check out the poster and support us as we take on Concordia-Moorhead! I guarantee you will learn something new.
This past weekend we officially clinched a playoff spot and look to make a strong push to try to win the MIAC. Any support is much appreciated.
If you have any questions feel free to contact me,

The Augsburg Native American Film Series presents Blood Memory on February 19, 2020.
The title “Blood Memory” is derived from the concept that the experiences of one generation are passed onto the next through DNA. Future generations live with the shared knowledge of their ancestors – meaning there is a foundation of survival instinct and cultural identity that exists within us prior to learned experience. In many ways, this is a beautiful and poetic concept, but trauma and abuse can also be transferred intergenerationally, sometimes unknown to the carrier. This film is about acknowledging and honoring all aspects of blood memory, and how we as individuals and community members heal our collective traumas and learn to pass positive ancestral knowledge to the next generation–Director’s Statement (Blood Memory, Official Film Site)
Blood Memory, a true life “dark-horse political thriller”, tells Sandy White Hawk’s story of adoption out of her home community at a young age and her work to help the “stolen generation” of the American Indian Adoption Era return home. Intertwined with her saga is that of Mark Fiddler, an ICWA lawyer whose advocacy as co-council in Adoptive Couple vs. Baby Girl 2013 helped to dismantle the law he once fought to protect (Vision Maker Media). Join Sandy White Hawk for an evening of screening the film and discussion.
