"Misalliance" director Rebecca Eddy tells you why you should watch her play.
In October 2011, a small group of UAF students, staff, and alumni gathered to discuss the 39th annual Festival of Native Arts (FNA). In January, the group tripled and began to meet at least twice a week, with the festival’s opening night, Mar. 1, 2012, on the horizon. Finally, last night approximately 100 volunteers kicked off the celebration at the University of Alaska Fairbanks Davis Concert Hall.
“Most of the volunteers are Alaskan natives themselves, so they like being a part of something that celebrates their native culture," said Sarah Walker the festival student coordinator.

The "Trancemonster" multimedia performance on Saturday night was not typical of a Davis Concert Hall event. Rather than string ensembles, there was pounding bass. In place of refined theater, there was a lasershot light show.
