Explore the social, political, and cultural themes threaded throughout Asolo Rep's theatrical season. 

Join us as we examine issues of race, gender, identity, and cultural intersection. Discuss art and activism while connecting with community—these dynamic community conversations invite all to the table and challenge us to reflect upon our past and present in hopes for a more inclusive future.

IllumiNation tickets include a ticket to the show, a pre-show reception, and a currated post-performance discussion.

Special IllumiNation Event

Wednesday, Jan 4 - IllumiNation at Stick Fly

Moderated by Stick Fly Director Marcus Denard Johnson and Visiting Assistant Professor DeAnna S Wright.

Family dynamics are colored in with an abundance of history. In this particular world of an affluent family, the Levays, we get to bear witness to the unfolding of their history in the midst of the family's patriarch, his two sons, their two visitors and the daughter of the family maid. In this talkback, we will engage in a conversation that unpacks the universal narrative of Stick Fly, comprised of race, class, privilege, status and the turbulence that comes when family secrets are uncovered.
