ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE
Increasing racial violence. Gender parity dismissed. Rising class warfare. Newly gained ground for same sex couples and trans safety threatened. Immigrant status insecure. Mosques, synagogues, and sacred burial grounds desecrated. Is this the America we want for ourselves and our families? Our nation is at a critical crossroads. What can we do? Join us as we imagine the future for our country and chart a path of action forward together with compassion and courage. Penumbra’s Let’s Talk Series creates space for compassionate and challenging conversations around issues of social justice, equity, and the arts. Hosted by Sarah Bellamy, the event begins at 6:00pm with refreshments and light bites, followed by a 90-minute presentation and discussion.
Penumbra Theatre’s My America is sponsored by MPR News and supported in part by a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, as part of its Knight Arts Challenge. The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation’s Knight Arts Challenge funds ideas that engage and enrich St. Paul through the arts. Additional support provided by the Bush Foundation and the Marbrook Foundation.
