THEATER: Peter Handke's They Are Dying Out is an epic reflection on the psyche of the corporate world and how it infects the humanity of those who engage it. Business kingpin Hermann Quitt knows that it is challenging for him to live up to his own ideal image of life. Frustrated by this knowledge, he turns into an unethical monster who disregards his wife, breaks contracts, betrays and ruins his business associates, and leads him to commit the ultimate crime against himself. MFA Directing alum Chi-Wang Yang returns hom with this spellbinding German play, They Are Dying Out.

THEATER: Skyview Double Feature
Written by Isabel Salazar
Directed by Dan Bonnell
Skyview Double Feature by Isabel Salazar reflects on the fragmentation between human reality and spirituality. Composed of two separate parts, Conception and Revelation, Skyview Double Feature can be viewed in two ways: either separately or in tandem. Dan Bonnell directs both pieces, presented by the CalArts School of Theater. Each segment focuses on a part of Mejia's journey. Searching for a sense of truth in her life, Mejia grapples with her own identity and the demands of the world surrounding her. When obstacles veer her off course, she is forced to face destiny in its' purest forms. Is fate what we make of it or is it out of our control? Through mystical encounters and transcendent experiences we join Mejia on her path of discovery.
