 Pangea World Theatre presents:
5 Weeks
 through April 23
5 Weeks tells the stories of broken hearts, shattered images, longing and memories of home during the tumultuous time after borders were drawn to create India and Pakistan in 1947. Inspired by real life events, interviews and fiction, 5 Weeks weaves together multiple strands of stories of people of different faiths and cultures, bringing to life those forced to flee what they once called home, the pressures to choose allegiance, and the desperate search for compassion in a time when humanity hung in the balance.

The Food Defense Conference 2017
May 3-4, 2017, Commons Hotel
When you observe the world around you, what do you see? What possibilities for healing self and community emerge when you pause to consider your place within a larger network of life? How are your movements, stories, and imagination formed and informed by the these relationships with the environment? Adapting the practice of Augusto Boal and his Rainbow of Desire, this workshop explores the ways in which performance mediates our relationship with the environment. Through movement and oral storytelling, participants will reflect on what they carry into the space, how they connect with the world around them, and why we might consider performance as a way to hear and see the environment otherwise. This will be the first of several performance workshops happening at the Native American Medicine Garden over the spring and summer months.

WHEN: Wednesday April 26th from 2:00-3:00
WHERE: University of Minnesota Native American Medicine Garden (corner of Cleveland and Larpenteur)

* Come dressed for the elements - this event will be rain or shine!
* There will be light snacks and refreshments at the conclusion of the event.
