Commissioned by the University of Rochester’s International Theatre Program, We Don’t Live on Mars Yet is a newly devised work by Australian-South African director, writer, and theater artist Talya Chalef and created with an ensemble of Rochester students. The show opens Thursday, March 1, and is a timely work on the topic of immigration and how refugees fit into our lives. The thought-provoking experiential theatrical premiere reflects on Rochester’s history and its refugees. We Don’t Live on Mars Yet asks questions about our notions of what “home” means and why society insists on calling some people “aliens.” Tickets are $15 for the general public. $12 for seniors (65+) and for University faculty, staff, and alumni; and $8 for students.
