howdy ! and welcome to the future. the future is somewhat less formal than the past as it’s still underway... is still becoming 

Also, I’d like to remind you that our collective future is unquestioningly and emphatically diverse, intersectional, equitable, free, empathic, and reparated. if you’re not with it, then you are against it, man.

Make Thee an Ark. Historic Spanish Point, October 2021 

Make Thee an Ark is a new site-specific play imagined by Raychel Ceciro, set 300 years in the future in a new Ark floating above an undersea Florida. Moored to an old oil rig, the New Ark harbors what may be the last vestiges of humanity after global warming has wreaked havoc on the planet. Combining storytelling with immersive performance, projection, and puppetry, Make Thee an Ark interprets the history of Historic Spanish Point  from the perspective of a generation living in the flooded future. The performance runs just over an hour in duration. See photos of the space here.

Additionally, Historic Spanish Point is hosting a talk-back panel after the final performance with community members and local experts to discuss the play and its relevance.

Support for the Ark Dialogues programming was generously provided through a grant from Florida
Humanities with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities, by the John Ringling Tower Fund
with funds from the Arts and Culture Alliance of Sarasota County, and by Historic Spanish Point.
