For Dezi Gallegos' latest piece of documentary theater, the 18-year-old performance prodigy interviewed people from nine different religions to help him decide once and for all whether or not God exists. What he found -- and shares on stage -- is wit and wisdom from a witch who worships Elvis, the director of an official organization of American atheists, a rabbi who somehow holds down a side job as a drag queen and many more, as well as an understanding of the shared human quest to discover why we're here. Gallegos has continued to develop his craft since his success as the co-writer of the award-winning Prop 8 Love Stories, when he was just 14. Learn More
Sia Amma is out of Africa. She grew up in a small town between the boundaries of Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea in West Africa. She remembers walking through town as a child, seeing family members, beautiful buildings and children laughing in the streets. In the market, Mandinka women sold ceremonial white cloth. Twenty years later, when she returned following the civil war, that was all gone. The entire town had vanished. Amma is a stand-up comedian, dancer and actress who is best known for making fun of African and American cultures, relationships, life experiences, sexuality and, of course, herself.
