by BWW News Desk - Jul 31, 2018

As part of the 2018 Next Wave Festival, BAM and Onassis Cultural Center New York will present Speaking Truth to Power, a fall series of theater productions, conversations, and film screenings that explores The Concept of free speech as a form of resistance, and examines the challenges facing individuals, societies, and movements that seek to employ it.
