In these polarizing times, a story can bring people together.
A story can speak the truth. A story can heal.
What are the stories that need to be heard now?
‘Walk in my Shoes’ is a Theater of Witness piece created and performed by police and community members exploring societal wounds and sharing their stories and visions for the future. Scripted and directed by Theater of Witness Artistic Director Teya Sepinuck directly from the words and experiences of the performers, the piece is collaboration with Philadelphia Police Inspector Altovise Love-Craighead, and composer Jay Fluellen. ‘Walk in my Shoes’ reveals the poignant and provocative stories of how race, poverty, trauma, inequality, power, abuse, safety, heroism, and injustice intersect in the lives of both police and community members.
