Anacostia Playhouse

Pay What You Can/Voluntary Contribution

Since 2015, Silence Is Violence has been a platform for DC-area youth and professional artists to address social justice issues that affect them through performance and community dialogue. Our first two events focused on the #BlackLivesMatter movement, responding powerfully to police brutality against black communities and facilitating a conversation that spanned generations and cultures.

This year, we are shifting focus to a social justice concern that has risen to the forefront in light of the most recent presidential election: immigration. Through multi-disciplinary performances, visual art, a panel of experts, a community quilt and more, Silence Is Violence: What Now? will explore the immigrant experience and immigrants’ rights, engage with issues of Islamophobia and xenophobia and celebrate the cultures of all people who call the United States their home. We look forward to working with our diverse student body and artistic community to bring to life the many voices that make our nation great!

Join us! Reserve tickets to either performance, and come to the Anacostia Playhouse on Feb. 27 or 28 ready to participate in an enriching, uplifting artistic conversation. Tickets are Pay What You Can/Voluntary Contribution: we know that not all guests will be able to contribute, but if you can, please do so at the door!

Presented in partnership with the Mayor's Office on Latino Affairs, Sitar Arts Center, Split This Rock, GALA Hispanic Theatre, DC SCORES, and Alexandria City Public Schools.
