As part of the UtahPresents 2023-24 season, Indigenous artist and University of Utah Theatre Department alum Timothy White Eagle is bringing his performance The Indigo Room to Kingsbury Hall, Thursday, November 9 through Saturday, November 11 at 7:30PM.
The performance is part of UtahPresents’ Stage Door series, with limited capacity seating on the Kingsbury Hall stage. Tickets are $40, with a $5 ticket for U of U students and a $10 ticket for non-U students, and are available at 801-581-7100 or utahpresents.org. The Indigo Room is limited to 50 patrons per performance.
The Indigo Room is an immersive ritualistic theater and installation work by Seattle-based Indigenous artist Timothy White Eagle and his team of collaborators, The Violet Triangle. This new theater work is rooted in ritual theater and explores one of the oldest and most universal myths, the story of a hero being swallowed alive and then returned, which has appeared around the world. The artists use this ancient story to ponder what it means to be living in our contemporary moment through isolation and longing for community while juxtaposing the profane with the sacred.
