Co-producer Damien Luxe, a media justice activist and multimedia artist, says of the performers’ relationships to social justice, “We travel with our work in order to connect each other and local folks with intra-community liberation strategies and to develop, as a complicated community, visions of a world we want to live in. To paraphrase the brilliant Toni Cade Bambara, we hope to make the revolution look irresistable — by presenting art that supports each other’s self-determination and brilliance, we start to radically re-vision a world we can survive and thrive in — a world that deserves art and which needs all kinds of people making it.”

Co-producer Heather Acs, a New York City teaching artist and theatre performer, says of the performers, “Touring with multi-disciplinary artists who work professionally in a variety of media means that we can share strategies from Theatre of the Oppressed to DIY, from ukelele chords to community forums to bring a combination of glitter, gender justice and engaged art.” The roadshow gathers performers with backgrounds & experiences including folks who are working class, poor, professional, and sex workers; folks with graduate-level education and people who are self-taught; mestiza, immigrants, border-crossers and white folks; survivors, organizers, and educators. “Getting to shake up all this experience and celebrate the creativity that comes out is what storytelling and community art is about.”
