by Alexa R. McGinn

November 22 & 24

Growing up as a budding writer, Alexa’s world is rocked after being placed in remedial reading and spelling classes at school. One dyslexia diagnosis later, we follow Alexa as she navigates school, discovers the internet, declares Shakespeare to be an old fart, and revives her love for words. Using dance, spoken word, and a few book references for good measure, Celexia is an autobiographical ode to words and a declaration of our human desire to create and be heard.
