JSonic and The Unknown Salon


Idris Goodwin

FRI, JAN 5 | 10:30 AM - 12 PM (MST)
Community Room

A presentation and conversation towards a mixed media stage play. Playwright and Director Idris Goodwin, Arizona's own Childsplay Theatre and The Mix are joining forces to tell a new story in a new way for new audiences. J Sonic and The Unknown, part of the BIPOC SUPERHERO’S INITIATIVE, is an exciting sci fi, afro futuristic adventure play slated for production in fall 2025. Though currently only in script form, Idris would like to invite participants into the process, as he begins to thrust his new baby into the brave new world of technology, exploring the appropriate merge of the analog (live performance) and digital. After a roughly 30 minute, show and tell, reading of the script, the audience will be invited to share their prescriptive ideas, recommendations and visions.
