“Commit yourself to the noble struggle for equal rights. You will make a greater person of yourself, a greater nation of your country, and a finer world to live in.” – Martin Luther King Jr.
In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Motus Theater presents a Family-Friendly performance of “JustUs: Stories From the Frontlines of the Criminal Justice System.”
In this performance, which is part of the Boulder County premiere of “JustUs,” audience members can listen to the autobiographical stories of Cierra Block, Brian Lynch, Juaquin Mobley, and Brandon Wainright developed in collaboration with Kirsten Wilson.
The performance will be followed by a panel discussion with Motus’s “JustUs” monologists, Boulder County DA Michael Dougherty, and Colorado State House Representative Leslie Herod – Chair of the Colorado Prison Population Management Community.
A full “JustUs” performance featuring seven monologists and musical responses by jazz great Robert Johnson and Adam Bodine will be presented at 6:30 PM also at the Gordon Gamm Theater (age advisory: 18+ years old). Tickets for the 6:30 PM performance of “JustUs” are available here.
“JustUs” premiered at the 2019 National Association of Community and Restorative Justice Conference in Denver, in front of 1,600 people.
