Adult tickets $20; Senior/Student tickets $15
Tickets available soon
Inspired by the book Flatland by Edwin Abbot. The year is 2089 in Tierra Plana, a new nation of squares, walls, and all sorts of boxes; a place where individual categories are pre-determined. Four friends: Fig, Noir, Isa, and Hex, are preparing for the day they receive their identity bracelets. Nervous about not fitting in, they escape to the desert and discover the mystery of the past hidden in boxes from the U.S. Census Bureau. Bi– will break open the boxes of selective classification and raise the question: What is your bi-dentity?
“This play uses mathematical and geometrical metaphor as well as inspiration from interviews from people in the community to tug at the heartstring that often makes us feel a little too much like the other,” says the play’s writer Georgina Escobar. “Bi– is simply about expansive thinking and it challenges the audience to join a ride that could feel strange and foreign, but then again, isn’t that what all people who claim a dual identity (bi-nationals, bilinguals, bi-cultural) have to navigate in dealing with a homogenous society?”

Tickets available online, in the Columbia Arts Gallery, and at Waucoma Bookstore.
