Motus Theater and the Newman Center for the Performing Arts present the special performance UndocuMonologues with Arturo O’Farrill. In this performance, audience members will have the unique opportunity to sit on stage and listen to Grammy award-winning Afro-Jazz musician Arturo O’Farrill improvise musical responses to the autobiographical stories of five undocumented leaders.

Autobiographical monologues by Tania Chairez, Laura Peniche, Alejandro Fuentes Mena, Victor Galvan, and Cristian Solano-Córdova in collaboration with Motus Theater’s Artistic Director, Kirsten Wilson.

UndocuMonologues with Arturo O’Farrill marks the Denver launch of Motus Theater’s national podcast Shoebox Stories: UndocuAmerica series which is a unique “story-holding” podcast, where prominent Americans stand in the shoes of an undocumented person by reading aloud their story, saying their words and holding the weight they carry.
