Shaunga Tagore’s Letters to the Universe is a brown femme “superqueero’s” journey through time warps and alternate dimensions where she meets her epic, complicated spirit guides – Premonition, The Warrior, The Conjurer, The Healer, The Siren and The Star, who each teach her about the secret of magic. This play infuses theatre, dance, poetry, song, video projection, and astrology. It is about survivors, ancestors, family, and curious twin spirits like grief & joy, life & death, madness & magic.

All cast and crew members of Letters to the Universe identify as queer, trans, genderqueer, Black, Indigenous and/or people of colour (QTBIPOC). On our team we have survivors, single parents, deaf/hard of hearing artists, people who live with chronic pain, disability and mental health struggles.  This is not an accident.

Historical and systemic oppression against Queer, Trans, Indigenous, Black and people of colour all around the world has left devastating consequences on our right to express ourselves, build solidarity and community with one another, and connect to a core part of our spirits, energy and passion.

And yet, here we are. We tell stories to survive, to hope, to create individual and collective change, to love bigger and better. We’d love to share this story with you. Please come to see our show and read more about how you can support this work!
