Performance: Stories of an Imperfect Movement (June 24)

June 14, 2012 in Event

Come and experience a night of story-sharing, discussion, and fun on Sunday, June 24th at 5:30pm at the Aztlan Theater! (974 Santa Fe Drive, RSVP on Facebook)

Occupy Denver has partnered with the Romero Theater Troupe, a group of social activists who promote social justice through organic theater, to create a unique event called “Stories of an Imperfect Movement”. Over the past two months, we have compiled stories from people who have been directly involved with Occupy Denver through a horizontal, consensus-based process called “organic theater”. We have turned those stories into a theater production designed to show the side of the movement that most people don’t get to see and that the media doesn’t tell you about.

After the performance, we will have a time for “talk-back”, offering a chance for you to interact with the performers and participants in the movement, ask questions, critique, and even tell stories of your own. This performance is intended for a broad audience – supporters, critics, observers, and participants of every kind – all are welcome!

The stories exhibited in this performance aim to provide a window to what it’s been like being active in the movement and give the real background of some of the more controversial moments of the movement. As participants in the movement, we want to share our experiences, good and bad, with the public and help others better understand what Occupy is really about.

Doors will open at 5pm, and the show will start at 5:30. We suggest a $5 donation, but no one will be turned away. Don’t miss it!
