Set in a city doomed to revise its cataclysms again and again, Bellona, Destroyer of Cities draws on the labyrinthine world imagined by Delany to express the intricate and at times abstract delineations of race, gender and sexuality today.

The show stars Sarita Choudhury, Caleb Hammond, Mikéah Ernest Jennings, Jon Morris, Ayesha Ngaujah, Tanya Selvaratnam, and Natalie Thomas; and features set and lighting design by Peter Ksander, and video and photography by Josh Higgason with Jay Scheib and Carrie Mae Weems.

Tickets are $25. Bellona, Destroyer of Cities is presented as part of the Emerging America Festival and in conjunction with FAST/MIT 150: a festival celebrating MIT’s confluence of Art, Science and Technology.  More info HERE.
