Developed by F.U.N Collective Directed by Brennan O'Rourke, Katusha Jin Sitting Shotgun, SQUARE 1 May 14-19, 2019
STEREOFLIGHT, heavily influenced by magical realism, is a play that imagines what would happen when you board a plane towards your dream destination, fall sleep on your seat, but your unconscious works intensely to reveal that your dream destination is just an illusion, a place built on stereotypes, meritocracy and broken institutions. The play was written and developed collaboratively by the members of F.U.N. Collective, and was initially inspired by the different immigrant experiences from the founding members of our collective. The show quickly became a project aimed at highlighting the lack of mobility that the US immigration system presses on newcomers while we manage to navigate, struggle and celebrate our intersectional identities. This iteration of STEREOFLIGHT is proud to feature only femme-identified artists: womyn of color, immigrants and queer folks.
F.U.N. Collective (Fierce Untamed Niñes) will present its first full-length play STEREOFLIGHT on May 14 as part of a casual residency at Sitting Shotgun theater company. The play, written in collaboration by Kim Morales, Donna Gary and Salomé Egas and co-directed by Katusha Jin and Brennan O'Rourke will have a six-day run (May 14th-18th @ 8pm, May 19th @ 6pm) at SQUARE 1, 885 Park Avenue in Brooklyn, NY. The show, an evolving work-in-progress, is being produced by Myka Cue and Salomé Egas. The cast of STEREOFLIGHT includes Camila Kann (Martha), Mouli Ghosh (Aquilah), Lesley Young (Bashita) and Claudia Job Pula (Devoción), they will be accompanied with live music by the talented Emily Wexler (ES Wex). The co-directors will be joined by fight choreographer Stephanie Orta. Photography by Lauren Pratt.
