Letters|Home is a dance-theater performance celebrating the various ways in which human beings relate to the notion of “home.” Led by Wynn Fricke, Cláudia Tatinge Nascimento, Tom Barrett, and Eliot Gray Fisher, the creative team of Macalester students playfully investigates the act of homemaking, the pains of displacement from lost or stolen land, immigration and the history of our ancestors, community at gay bars and other safe spaces, spiritual life, and the body as our very first home.  

This event is for: Alumni, Students, Staff, Faculty, Parents and Families and Public
