Boundless Truth: Women’s Stories of Freedom and Incarceration

September 19 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

We invite you to join us either in person at the Gordon Gamm Theater in the Dairy Arts Center, or online via Zoom, on Sunday, September 19th, at 2pm or 5pm, for the national premiere of Boundless Truth: Women’s Stories of Freedom and Incarceration.

In Boundless Truth, Black women leaders who were formerly incarcerated tell autobiographical stories of the racism, biases, and injustices within the criminal legal system. Performance includes musical responses by Colorado’s famed Spirit of Grace – a cappella social justice singers and a special performative response from IWADE, the Intergenerational Woman’s African Drum and Dance Ensemble.

The autobiographical stories were developed in a 24-week Motus Monologue process facilitated by Motus Theater’s Artistic Director, Kirsten Wilson and Transformative Healing Coach Wendy Talley. Monologues were created by Brenda Cisse, Candice Bailey, Colette Payne, Cynthia Randall, Marquitta Brown, Terri House, and Willette Benford in collaboration with Kirsten Wilson.

Boundless Truth is part of the JustUs project. JustUs is unparalleled in our nation, supporting community leaders who are impacted by carceral systems to tell artfully crafted autobiographical monologues that expose the devastating impact of the criminal legal system and inspire action towards a vision of true justice. The project builds upon Motus’ specialty of developing artfully crafted autobiographical monologues with leaders on the frontlines of violence in the U.S., putting them center stage as the protagonists in the American drama.
