In My Shoes

Tuesday, April 26, 2016
7:30pm – 9:00pm

Storrs Campus
Student Union Theatre

In My Shoes brings the voices of women in and outside of prison to the stage in spoken word, dance and song and asks audiences to engage in just what it would be like to be ‘in my shoes.’ The piece presents an evocative mix of the stark and the delightful as it challenges us to explore issues of criminal justice from the stance of our common humanity. Performed by women who have reentered the community from York Correctional Institution joined by The Ensemble of the Judy Dworin Performance Project, In My Shoes presents an authentic, provocative and soul-searching journey through the twist and turns of the walk to prison and back and what it means to be truly free.

Performance is FREE and open to the public.
