|Step into the future with the power of a strong community!
We are pleased to bring critically acclaimed actress, writer and theater based educator, Anu Yadav to the area as part of the Voices of Community series coming up November 13th – 20th.
Anu Yadav is dedicated to telling the stories of people pushed to the margins of public discourse and as a solo performer Anu shape-shifts into characters from everyday life with both humor and drama. Her devised theater work sparks a powerful forum for people to reflect and listen to each other’s stories across social and economic divides.
On Thursday November 17th and Friday November 18th at 8 PM at Next Stage see the performance of ‘Capers, a stirring blend of theater, documentary and activism. ‘Capers is a one-woman show based on the stories of families at DC’s Arthur Capper/Carrollsburg public housing projects – nicknamed ‘Capers – who protested the government-funded demolition of their neighborhood. $18 general admission and $16 students/seniors.
On Wednesday November 15th Join Anu’s workshop, The Art of Listening, form 6:00 – 8:00 PM at Next Stage for $10.
