Rocks Karma Arrows Screening (Part 1)

November 14 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

In collaboration with the Longmont Museum, Motus Theater presents Rocks Karma Arrows Screening (Part 1).

Rocks Karma Arrows is a film of Motus Theater’s multimedia contemporary theater piece looking at Boulder history through the lens of race and class. Historical figures, like the great Chief Niwot, come alive to tell the story of the early founding of Boulder and the massacre at Sand Creek. Interviews with local historians and Buddhist monks are woven with historical photographs and film into the drama. At times the photographic images completely take over 180° of the theatrical space so that actors are literally immersed in the history – interacting with the photos, struggling with the voices of the past, and trying to understand how those voices echo in the present. The highly acclaimed production debuted as an official city event for the Boulder Sesquicentennial in 2009 at the Alliance for Technology, Learning and Society at the University of Colorado at Boulder. The film was created with a generous grant from the National Endowment for the Arts

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Motus Theater’s Artistic Director, Kirsten Wilson.
