20% Theatre Company Twin Cities presents the 4th annual Q-STAGE: New Works Series -- an experimental series dedicated to providing a stage for queer artists and performance-makers to showcase new work.

SET "A" -
May 5 & 6* at 730pm, and May 7 at 2pm
@ Intermedia Arts, 2822 Lyndale Ave S, Minneapolis

FEATURING:

"THE SMITTY COMPLEX"
Written & Created by Devin Taylor
Co-Directed by Devin Taylor & Bri Collins
Featuring Courtney Stirn, Beth Mikel Ellsworth, Graeme Ernest Monahan-Rial, and Logan Gilbert-Guy

Smitty is an otter looking for an answer to the question: "what am I?" He finds himself in the office of Dr. Handler--an "expert" determined to resolve Smitty's confusion and help him conform to a proper narrative of otterness. What follows is a surreal look at how the politics of medicine and social welfare interact with the politics of fear, identity, and self-determination. It's mostly a story about an otter.

--AND--

"THESE FLOATING BONES"
Created & Performed by Nadia Honary
Video Design by Nadia Honary
Directed by Shalee Mae Coleman

What if birth and death are only points on a circle? Is nature transcendental escape or a manifestation of our minds inner turmoil? Through elemental inspired film, dance, poetry, and music, "These Floating Bones" seeks to discover answers and to find balance through movement.
