At Mixed Blood, we realize that our productions, and the narratives we support, are only part of a larger conversation around the content, issues, and themes those works explore. With that understanding we seek out ways to invite others to join the conversation.

Our Free Speech program has provided a few of those opportunities. The Free Speech Salon series invites members from our community to speak on panels focused on particular themes and issues extracted from our productions.

We invite you attend a conversation about the Twin Cities' Theatre Scene, "Crashing the National Theatre Scene", on Monday, Feb. 27 @ 9:00 pm

When announcing our topics for Crashing the Party, we were very excited to host a conversation about the Twin Cities’ place in the American Theatre landscape. In light of articles that were part of HowlRound’s recent week-long focus on Twin Cities Theatre, we believe it’s timely to continue the dialogue.

Join us Monday, February 27 for our Salon “Crashing the National Theatre Scene: The Twin Cities’ Place in the American Theatre.” The Salon will immediately follow our 7:30 pm “Industry Night” performance of Crashing the Party, and we’re hoping to gather a critical mass of Twin Cities theatre-makers to enrich the conversation. The salon will begin at 9:00 pm and attendance of Crashing the Party is not required to take part. If you can’t make the Salon, you can still follow and participate in the live conversation on Twitter with #TCtheatre.

"Theatre and Politics: A Healthy Marriage?" is the topic for the Sunday, Feb. 26th Salon

Monday’s event will be preceded by Sunday’s Salon, “Theatre and Politics: A Healthy Marriage?”. Join us after the 3:00 pm matinee of “Party” as we discuss the inextricable bond between theatre and politics and the advantages/disadvantages of that union.  Slated to speak so far are: Judge Kathryn Quaintance and Laurie Carlos.
