“I PROTEST” / Produced by eta Creative Arts / Created by eta Creative Arts Youth Ensemble / Directed by Erica Brown Williams
I PROTEST incorporates poetry, drama, music, dance and video to punctuate personal and social aspects of current and historic protest movements. Young artists’ voices and bodies are at the center of this dramatic performance. Audiences have an opportunity to witness and respond to the idea of Protest for personal advocacy.
This devised work is a culmination of writing and performance training workshops conducted at eta Creative Arts Foundation in collaboration with the Department of Cultural Arts and Special Events and The Millennium Park Theatre Series for the Year of Chicago Theatre.
