The Mikado: Reclaimed PR ImageSEASON 28
| FEBURARY 2016
The Mikado: Reclaimed
Based on the words & music of Gilbert & Sullivan. Devised by the Ensemble
Directed by kt shorb.
Presented by Generic Ensemble Company and The VORTEX in conjunction with LuckyChaos Productions

The Mikado: Reclaimed flips the Gilbert and Sullivan classic on its head, presenting an (almost) all-Asian American cast performing a devised theatre piece with select musical numbers from the (in)famous operetta. Set in an internment camp in the near future, internees seek humanity amidst racism, corruption, and xenophobia. Queer love stories mingle with examinations of yellowface and conflict as we reinvent the well-known characters of Yum-Yum, Nanki-poo, and Ko-Ko. In a political climate of over-crowded immigrant detention centers, calls for “Muslim Bans,” and the largest refugee crisis in decades, The Mikado: Reclaimed explores human resilience and liberation in the face of real and metaphorical confinement.

 

Featuring: JooHee Anh, Annie Hedrick, Jonathan Itchon, Abigail Lucas, Smalls McCoy, Rachel Steed, and Leng Wong. Directed by kt shorb. Music Direction by Alex Hartley, Lighting Design by Shelby Gebhart, Costume Design by Lirit Pendell, Cosmetic Design by Amelia Turner, Scenic Design by Ann Marie Gordon.

This project is funded and supported in part by VORTEX Repertory Company, a grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts, and by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department.
