Truthworker Theatre Company is honored to be the feature performers at The Stanley B Keith Social Justice Center’s 4th Anniversary Fundraiser. We will perform excerpts from our provocative three-part body of work that depicts the prison industrial complex through the lens of a dozen youth directly impacted by mass incarceration. This trilogy, comprised of original hip-hop theatre productions, moves from the school-to-prison pipeline and youth criminalization, through the impacts and practices of solitary confinement, and into re-entry upon release. Truthworker’s deeply personal performances center redemption, forgiveness, and responsibility to humanize those most negatively impacted by systemically racist policies. Creating radical forums for vulnerability, Truthworker’s compelling performances weave rhyme, hip-hop theatre, dance, multimedia, cutting edge technology, and personal testimony to interrupt and transform the criminalizing and violent systems that permeate our communities. Using art to raise awareness, Truthworker’s productions serve as the public face of a growing movement demanding criminal justice reform.
