Motus Theater’s mission is to create original theater to facilitate dialogue on critical issues of our time. We aim to use the power of art to build alliances across diverse segments of our community.
Our award-winning performances and projects have moved important local and national debates about marginalized local histories, and immigration reform.
Motus Theater reached a national audience in 2017 with our acclaimed performance of law enforcement leaders reading autobiographical monologues of DACA recipients. In 2018 and 2019 we are moving forward even more strategically with the UndocuAmerica project.
UndocuAmerica is our most strategic project yet, addressing threats against the undocumented community with a focus on local impact and national reach. It builds on the collaborations and learnings from our previous achievements and brings together autobiographical monologues, radio/podcasts, documentary theater, and journalism to amplify the stories of undocumented immigrants in our community and across the country.
