Peer Advocates for Sexual Respect 3rd Annual Community Promise

Join the Peer Advocates as we celebrate our community values through the lens of Healthy Relationships! This year, we posed the questions of “What Does a Healthy Relationship Look Like?” and “Why Do You Deserve to Have One?” Come hear the responses of your peers and members from the broader Amherst community!

"Gossamer"

The Department of Theater and Dance presents Gossamer, written and directed by Sophina Flores ’20. Gossamer follows three children and their mother through a dissociative fantasy world they have created as a response to trauma, trapped in the liminal space between death and life. Through surrealist movement, Gossamer carries us through a distorted narrative of a broken home—a family grappling with forgiveness, acceptance and hope for recovery, while facing the truth that no one is innocent within the cycle of abuse.

Set design by Laura Carty ’20, costume design by Lorelei Dietz ’20, lighting design by Lauren Thompson, projection design by Brenna Kaplan ’22, and sound design by Christianna Mariano ’21 and Alistair Edwards ’22

Starring Sam Beach, Emily Fedor, Leah Folpe, Nick Govus, Eli Quastler, Andrew Rosevear, Caroline Seitz and Renz Toledo

Tickets are free; reservations are recommended: call (413) 542-2277 or email theater@amherst.edu.
