Dear Maria Kizito supporters,
Thanks again for the exchange that you made possible with Erik Ehn's play Maria Kizito. I wanted to let you know that the team's work together continues! Three performers from the Maria Kizito team - 2 from Uganda, 1 from the US - are performing in a Rwandan/Ugandan/American production of Ugandan playwright Deborah Asiimwe's play Cooking Oil. It's a beautiful piece about justice in the context of the foreign aid industry's impact on the "developing" world. The play will be presented in Los Angeles June 6-9 at ATX Warehouse produced by Los Angeles Performance Practice with support from CalArts' Center for New Performance. We're proud of the work. If you are in the area, please come check us out.
