As we transition from summer to autumn, the equinox asks us to honor the changing seasons with a balance of light and dark. Traditionally, this is a time for gathering, grounding, and comfort. The veil between the spiritual and mortal worlds is particularly thin around the autumnal equinox.
Our variety show is inspired by the chautauquas of the 19th and early 20th centuries, where people from all walks of life came together to experience education, entertainment, and culture for the whole community, with speakers, teachers, musicians, and entertainers.
We will have American Sign Language interpreters thanks to a grant from Regional Arts & Culture Council. Thank you as well to CymaSpace for working with us to ensure our show can be inclusive of the Deaf and hard of hearing community.
Founded in January 2018, Future Prairie is an artist collective led by women and queer creatives. We develop and mentor emerging and under-represented artists. We also produce a monthly podcast, host a quarterly variety show, and curate exhibitions, panels, performances, and published works that feature historically-marginalized groups such as women, disabled, racial, ethnic, gender, and sexual minorities, and low-income individuals.
