The Sixth Act
Formed in 2004, The Sixth Act provides co-curricular support for the study of drama across disciplines at MCC. To this end, The Sixth Act (1) develops co-curricular events and materials for MCC faculty and students, especially those who might teach or study plays or playwriting, and (2) provides enrichment opportunities to encourage all MCC faculty, students, and staff to see and talk about plays produced at MCC and in the Rochester area. The Sixth Act seeks as its leaders faculty, staff, and students drawn from a variety of academic disciplines and departments. The Sixth Act is supported by MCC's Creative Arts Committee and Liberal Arts Program.

Through The Sixth Act, Daystar/Rosalie Jones will introduce viewers to the storytelling potentials of the Anishinaabe Medicine Wheel, also called the Medicine Circle, or the Circle of Life. The Wheel embodies a depth of teachings from the Anishinaabe (or Ojibwe) people of North America. In its basic elements, this symbol is used as a teaching tool through which to embody the cycles of life, the elements of nature, and our responsibilities to self and the world around us.
