Join us for Aurora's 30th Season!

A message from Artistic Director Josh Costello

Dear Friends,
After a year that challenged all of us with pandemic, uncertainty, and the forces of hatred, we are at last able to anticipate not a return to normal but a chance to build a better world. Theatre is at its best when it brings people together and moves the conversation forward, and that’s what’s on offer from the plays that comprise Aurora’s thirtieth season. You’ll experience the skipped heartbeat of falling in love, the intellectual thrill of untangling a new idea, the joy of shared laughter as outdated shams are exposed, and the rousing energy of a call for revolutionary change.

This week on Aurora Connects, Josh and Dawn are joined by Corrina Gould, tribal spokesperson for the Confederated Villages of Lisjan (which includes Huichin, on the land colonially known as Berkeley and Oakland) and Co-Director for The Sogorea Te’ Land Trust, a women-led organization within the urban setting of her ancestral territory of the Bay Area that works to return Indigenous land to Indigenous people. We'll get to know Corrina better, learn more about the Confederated Villages of Lisjan and the Sogorea Te' Land Trust and Corrina's roles with each organization. We'll also learn more about the West Berkeley Shellmound and the Ohlone people.
