Mixed Blood Theatre
A free community gathering
Enacting the Dream features select readings from Native Gardens author Karen Zacarías’ play Just Like Us followed by a panel discussion including public officials, immigration experts and DREAMers. As a March 5 deadline looms before the bulk of the DACA permits begin to expire, well over 6,000 DREAMers living in Minnesota remain unsure of their future status in the United States. Enacting the Dream provides the opportunity to build empathy and awareness about the challenges faced by those whose path to citizenship remains unclear.
The readings will begin at 7 p.m. followed by a panel discussion.
Tickets are free, reservations are required. Due to limited capacity, there is a two-person limit per reservation.
As part of the Level Nine Series, the Guthrie is committed to offering Happenings, periodic community gatherings in response to local and national current events, creating a forum in which citizens can grapple with today's biggest topics and questions.
Mixed Blood Theatre has invited the global village into its audience and onto its stage for its unique brand of provocative, inclusive and predictably unpredictable theater since 1976. Using theater to illustrate and animate, Mixed Blood models pluralism in pursuit of interconnections, shared humanity and engaged citizenry.
