Q&A WITH SUSAN RAFFO
Pangea World Theater presents Q&A: Questions and Answers with Organizers and Artists, a series of intimate community conversations with some of the Twin Cities’ most creative, influential and dedicated organizers and artists. Curated by Emmanuel Ortiz and Jessica Lopez Lyman
Susan Raffo is a bodyworker, community organizer, writer, and a sometimes nonprofit worker.Closest to her heart is the work she has focused on over the last six years: weaving together body-based or somatic work with racial and economic justice work within the lens of healing justice. Susan lives in Powderhorn Park with her partner Rocki, daughter Luca, and housemate Kelly. Susan pretty much prefers to do everything in groups.

RECONCILIATION
In a dystopian future, the United States government has initiated a “Truth and Reconciliation” process with Indigenous peoples – and lack of compliance is a federal crime. One woman with nothing left to lose challenges the charge of “Failure to Reconcile” and fights for her life. Is reconciliation possible – and if so, at what cost?

Written and performed by Marisa Carr, Reconciliation is presented as part of Pangea World Theater’s Indigenous Voices Series Intermedia Arts’ Catalyst Series.
