The Seven Fires

Seven Fires Actors

In May, Theatre alumni Cian Evans Grayson, Darius Lee, Kevin Harris, and Joshua Miller worked with current Theatre student Alex Naranjo and faculty members Barbara Mangrum and Sarah Crockarell to produce an immersive play at Allerton Park and Retreat Center in Monticello, IL. The Seven Fires is based on the story of how the Anishinaabe people came to the Great Lakes area, the losses they suffered because of white settlers, and the message of hope that we can still heal the Earth and each other. Over two performances, audience members trekked over a mile-long trail to experience this story through music, movement, and poetry, and donated over six hundred dollars for the Bad River Tribe Land and Water Defense Fund.
