Virtual Theatre Today: Thursday, November 12- with Lillias White, Aisha de Haas and More!American Dreams - American Dreams invites YOU to participate in the newest game show sensation - where you, the audience, decide who wins the ultimate prize: citizenship to "the greatest nation on earth." Redefining online theater, this is a participatory performance which changes every night. A funnel for both unarticulated and spoken fears and divisions most current in the U.S., American Dreams meets audiences where they are in debate(s) on borders, immigration, security, and citizenship, and creates a space for connection and dialogue in and between communities about what it means to be(come) a citizen of this country. The show transforms abstract political debates into personal, tangible questions: What shifts when we aren't talking about distant borders but potential neighbors? What kinds and levels of bias do we bring to the conversation? Who would you take a chance on? How far would you go to advocate for your choice? Do you trust the system? If not, why and how do you continue to participate in it? At a time when so many feel a deep divide between various definitions of who "we" are, American Dreams strives to offer something more essential than ever: the opportunity to connect our hearts and minds with people, places and ideas we might not encounter otherwise. click here

Haruna Lee's - Obie-Award Winner Haruna Lee directs "Beyond the Wound is a portal" - an immersive musical ritual that invites you to slow down and rest as we, the first line of curse breakers and spacewalkers, seed the magic and medicine of our imagination together.

You are who you are. And you are who you've been. And you are who you'll be. And we invite all of this in. click here
