Wednesday, March 4th
Emma Lazarus' famous poem, inscribed as a welcome to immigrants on the Statue of Liberty, is the inspiration for the title of our next Food:Soul. BREATHE FREE will use poetry, short plays, devised work and participatory theatre to empower dialogue about immigrant rights and the U.S. deportation crisis. Drawing on Judson Memorial Church's immigrant rights advocacy and Flux's participation in the New Sanctuary movement, BREATHE FREE will wrestle with questions of home, migration, borders and how America's spirit of welcome changes in a time of war. As always, Food:Soul features free food, free theatre and a joyful spirit of community, so please join us on March 4 as together we yearn to BREATHE FREE.
The BREATHE FREE creative team is: Sol Crespo, Heather Cohn, Emily Hartford, Montserrat Mendez, Anna Rahn, August Schulenburg, Jason Tseng and Christine Zagrobelny.
Participating artists include: Sarah Amandes, Ken Glickfeld, Ivy Hong, Adriana Jones, Daryl Lathon, Carl Li, Moana Love, Collin McConnell, Antonio Minino, Ekwa Msangi, Matthew Murumba, Kyoung Park, Lori E. Parquet, Trevor Salter, Adriana Sananes, Jane Lincoln Taylor, Matthew Trumbull, Chinaza Uche and Stephanie Willing. More participating artists to be announced soon!
Flux's Food:Soul--BREATHE FREE is presented as part of Judson Memorial Church's Bailout Theater.

Judson Arts’ longest-running populist art and food program provides a full, free potluck-style meal cooked by our volunteer corps and served at 7:15 pm, followed by a free music, dance, or spoken word performance on the Meeting Room dance floor or in The Loft. [Read more.]
Judson Arts regular Amanda Duarte hosts a curated lineup of writers and musicians showcasing their “Dead Darlings,” pieces that have been cut, abandoned, and shunned until now. In the rambunctious, welcoming environment of our Loft, these wonky works of art are given the chance to unapologetically shine for one brief moment, going back in the drawer. [Read more.]
Judson Arts’ playwright development program selects one writer or writing team each month, offering 15 hours of free rehearsal time and space, and culminating in a Loft party packed with drinks, food, and a brand-spanking-new play or thing that looks nothing like a play. The art is often raw and unready, just how we like it. [Read more.]
(Fourth and Fifth Wednesdays)
Judson Arts’ evening of open space for artists and those who want to be artists. We flip on the lights, put out some drinks, and let the legendary voices of Judson’s past and present comingle in three hours of unstructured, quiet, creative time for all. No pressure to perform, no expectations, just artists working, alone or together, in the same open space. [Read more.]
