PlatteForum is pleased to announce our summer ArtLab internship project, “Messages from the Galactic Flare,” an engaging, thought provoking, and immersive live performance focused on sex education and breaking societal stereotypes that often surround them.
“Messages from the Galactic Flare” will focus on two main characters, and a range of topics shedding light upon issues surrounding self-acceptance and self-love in today’s Fyre Festival climate. As part of the annual ArtLab program, PlatteForum’s Esther Hernandez and Amanda Flores have paired the summer’s crop of interns alongside UMS event Director Tobias Krause, and choreographer Jiah Shin to help concept, plan, and execute this one-of-a-kind show that will be performed once, and only once on one of the biggest stages inside of the UMS.
Joining ArtLab interns is a cast of Denver creatives from all walks of life; Steven Frost, Louis Trujillo, James Mullane, Elyssa Lewis, Rachel Mathews.
