A new immersive multi-media experience bringing audience members into the lives of American low-wage workers living on the margins. A Piece of the Dream weaves film, photography, dance,
installation art, spoken word and live performance together in order to create space for the voices and stories that all too often go unheard as part of our American narrative. Audience members will journey
in groups of ten through several rooms on different floors while being exposed to a multitude art forms from various perspectives directly inspired by stories of people from the Capital Region who are considered working poor. A Piece of the Dream is meant to engage and provoke audiences to bear witness to the impacts of earning a low-wage, and to confront the way that this economic marginalization systematically oppresses millions of people in this country, and in turn affects us all. Inspired by a vision of a more just and equitable society, this multi-media experience seeks to connect audiences to the struggle of all workers and to imagine that another world is possible.
Audience members will go through the experience in groups of 10. Tickets LIMITED Reserve tickets at Brown paper tickets: http://thedream.bpt.me
