UndocuAmerica: Special MLK Day Monologue Performance

Motus Theater will celebrate and recognize Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s fight for equality and civil rights by debuting a new set of autobiographical monologues as part of its UndocuAmerica Performance and Media Project. Dr. King believed in equality of all people, and today, Motus deconstructs the dehumanizing portrayals of immigrants by encouraging thoughtful engagement on the challenges facing the undocumented community and the assets immigrants bring to our country. In collaboration with Northern Colorado Immigrants United, Motus will present the autobiographical monologues written and performed by undocumented leaders about their hopes and dreams as well as the challenges facing them and their families. The monologues will be interwoven with iconic visuals representing each story, as well as acapella music. This performance will be followed by a talk-back with the audience to explore the impact of the performance on the audience (as well as performers) and foster dialogue about how we can combat racial prejudice, misunderstanding, and ignorance to create a just community that is inclusive of all people.
