UndocuMonologues: Stories from our Undocumented Neighbors
Presented by Motus Theater

Motus Theater’s undocumented monologists invite you, via Zoom, into their homes to share personal stories about their lives, fears, and dreams. One story will be read aloud by special guest readers, Colorado Congressional Representatives Joe Neguse and Jason Crow, who will then reflect, alongside the monologists, about the impact of reading the story. Each monologue is followed by a musical response from Uruguayan musician Elisa Garcia.
