Upcoming Performance with Carl Li at FOOD:SOUL – BREATHE FREE March 4, 2015


Flux Theatre Ensemble

Wednesday, Mar, 04 2015 07:30 PM

“Give me your tired, your poor,/ Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free…”

Emma Lazarus’ famous poem, inscribed as a welcome to immigrants on the Statue of Liberty, is the inspiration for the title of our next Food:Soul. BREATHE FREE will use poetry, short plays, devised work and participatory theatre to empower dialogue about immigrant rights and the U.S. deportation crisis. Drawing on Judson Memorial Church’s immigrant rights advocacy and Flux’s participation in the New Sanctuary movement, BREATHE FREE will wrestle with questions of home, migration, borders and how America’s spirit of welcome changes in a time of war. As always, Food:Soul features free food, free theatre and a joyful spirit of community, so please join us on March 4 as together we yearn to BREATHE FREE.
