Theatre Professor Ryan Conarro will perform his interdisciplinary performance work 'Saints of Failure' as a site-specific production inside the sanctuary of Denver’s Historic Grant Avenue Church & Sacred Space (216 South Grant Street) April 16-17 and April 23-24 at 7:30pm. 

Weaving storytelling and live makeup transformations, Conarro shares a series of stories and memories to explore deep questions about LGBTQ identity and the American Christian experience, and the frictions and absurdities that ensue when these identities collide. The piece is underscored with a rich soundscape of live organ accompaniment by Denver musician Martha Yordy, and vocal performance by Mark Middlebrooks. 

'Saints of Failure' is presented in partnership with PFLAG Denver and The Center on Colfax. These two LGBTQ+ service organizations will co-facilitate post-show community conversations on Saturday, April 17, and Friday, April 23.
