Event description

Description

UrbanTheater Company, Liberation Arts Collective, and Eric Avilés presents "Where You From? What You Be About? "

"Where You From? What You Be About?" is an autobiographical solo play set in the historically Puerto Rican neighborhood of Humboldt Park Chicago. Seamlessly moving from past to present, “Where You From? What You Be About?” tells a story of how a man and his family reconcile the influences and subsequent death of a family member due to gun and gang violence. A cousin’s funeral becomes the catalyst for confronting a buried truth, for facing the effects of growing up surrounded by poverty, violence, and the need for healing. Using humor and drama this transformational journey is an interdisciplinary solo play that includes spoken word, video, and a live DJ. * Recommended for ages 12+
