Motus Theater Sets the Stage for Undocumented Voices

Motus Theater Sets the Stage for Undocumented Voices

Since 2013, Motus Theater has been working on advancing the conversation around issues of immigration and documentation in the United States, by working closely with community leaders to illuminate the realities and challenges of living as an undocumented person. The Motus Theater crew will present two performances of their new production, “UndocuMonologues”, on Martin Luther King Day, Monday, January 21st - featuring narratives written by people living with undocumented status in the U.S., in their own words.
