Tilikum returns for one night only.
Friday, June 19
We recommend viewing this video in full-screen mode (the small, square four-corners symbol in the bottom right corner of the video) and be sure that the video is un-muted (the small speaker symbol in the bottom left corner of the video).
You can make a donation any time before the end of tonight's broadcast with this button. 100% of donations will go to the #LetUsBreathe Collective.
Founded by Colón, the #LetUsBreathe Collective is an alliance of artists and activists organizing through a creative lens to imagine a world without prisons and police. It operates the Breathing Room space, a Black-led liberation headquarters for arts, organizing and healing on Chicago's South Side. Says Colón, "Now is the time to get on the right side of history. Now is the time to imagine beyond nightsticks and cages. Now is the time for collective care and responsibility. Dismantling white supremacist ideology and carceral systems is spirit work--metaphysical work--that demands our will to love be stronger than our will to power, that our courage to resist be stronger than our fear of change. We are creators and visionaries; we can imagine beyond police and prisons, and the time is now. Global pandemic has shown us that overnight transformation of social systems is possible, so there is no more time to wait for violent systems to grow a conscience. The time is now."
This fundraiser is made possible by the generous permission of the playwright, director, actors, musicians and designers whose work appears here, as well as United Scenic Artists Local 829.
