An Evening of Performance and Politics: Sliver of a Full Moon

6:00pm

Location: 

Knafel Center, 10 Garden St.

Sliver of a Full Moon: A Play Reading and DiscussionPresented by: Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study
Free and open to the public. Registration required.

"Sliver of a Full Moon" is a powerful reenactment of the historical congressional reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) in 2013: a movement that restored the authority of tribal governments to prosecute non-Native abusers who assault and abuse Native women on tribal lands.

When Olive and G.R., two scientists studying extraterrestrial life, get the chance to travel thirteen light-years to another planet, it seems like their dream job. Or it would be, if they didn’t have to babysit the C-list celebrities filming a reality TV show in their research station. After two weeks, they’re trapped, running out of food, water, air, patience, and opportunities to slip in product placement for zero-g tampons. Will reality TV producer Bryan Seacrest (no relation) be stranded? Is a rhetorical question an easy way to build suspense? Do they die at the end? (Don’t we all?)...
