Motus Theater & The Immigration Justice Task Force at the Boulder Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship are collaborating on a special dinner and film showing of the nationally acclaimed production “Law Enforcement Leaders Read ‘Do You Know Who I Am?'”
This performance brought to the stage Boulder County DA Stan Garnett, Boulder County Sheriff Joe Pelle, Lafayette Police Chief Rick Bashor, Louisville Police Chief David Hayes, Longmont Public Safety Chief Mike Butler, Boulder Police Chief Greg Testa, CU-Boulder Police Chief Ken Koch and Vice Chancellor of Public Safety Melissa Zak, who stood in solidarity with and read the autobiographical monologues of the Motus writers/performers and DACA recipients Juan Juarez, Victor Galvan, Oscar Juarez, Ana Temu, Hugo Juarez, and Ana Casas. You can watch a 3-minute highlight of the performance here.
Bring some food to share and join us to experience the film of a performance that was watched online by over 13,000 people, and was featured on NPR’s Here and Now, among other national media outlets.
After the screening, Ana Casas, Motus Theater writer/performer from SALSA LOTERÍA, and a guest performer in “Law Enforcement Leaders Read ‘Do You Know Who I Am?'” will engage the audience in a talkback. And Motus’ Producing Director Rita Valente-Quinn will be there to share more information about how you can host your own Motus Meals immigration program in your church or home.
This screening of “Law Enforcement Leaders Read ‘Do You Know Who I Am?'” is part of the Motus Meals program. Food brings people together and community is created when we share a meal together! Motus Meals are events that use Motus Theater films and food to bring communities together to continue the critical conversations after the run of our show is over.
