Motus Theater’s UndocuMonologues with Jazz great Robert Johnson

January 21 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Tickets available at https://thedairy.org/online/MotusTheater

In Honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Motus Theater presents
The National Premiere of  UndocuMonologues
at the Gordon Gamm Theater at the Dairy Arts Center

UNDOCUMONOLOGUES with Jazz great Robert Johnson

Don’t miss this once in a lifetime performance in which jazz great Robert Johnson offers a musical response to powerful stories from the heart by undocumented community leaders on the frontline of U.S. immigration policy. Visual Art by UndocuQueer Artist Julio Salgado.

Robert Johnson will be responding to the stories of Tania Chairez, Laura Peniche, Alejandro Fuentes Mena, Victor Galvan & Cristian Solano-Cordova. Johnson (who sang with Stan Getz and Stevie Wonder), will be accompanied by the pianist Adam Bodine.

(There is also a free 3pm family friendly performance of five different UndocuMonologues, but not in collaboration with Robert Johnson)

Motus Theater’s UndocuAmerica interrupts the dehumanizing portrayals of immigrants by encouraging thoughtful engagement on the challenges facing the undocumented community and the assets immigrants bring to our country. Motus worked with ten undocumented leaders to help them write powerful stories about their lives. Stories told are on a variety of themes, such as: the pain of being categorized as a criminal; losing family to deportation; the challenge of attending college without documentation; and being rejected by the country in which you were raised.

Join the movement! Listen to the life stories of DACAmented leaders in our community and learn about their hopes, fears, and about the assets they bring to our country.

The 3pm performance FREE (Please note there are no advance tickets. Seating will be on a first come, first served basis)
