On Monday November 2 at 7pm EST, we'll be LIVE FROM THE ANARCHIST JURISDICTION.
Join us for a Zoom reading of 76 new micro plays! Created in the style of The One-Minute Play Festival (#1MPF), these plays are a meditation on the current cultural and political moment in our country.
Last month, The Department of Justice deemed Portland, Seattle, and New York City to be anarchist jurisdictions, in the wake of protests and civil unrest. This attempt to delegitimize, criminalize, and defund perceived sanctuary cities that are politically opposed to the current administration, during an election season, has caused a ripple-out effect across our entire country. The narrative that the Justice Department is framing does not match the day to day reality of what is going on in our country.
We are days away from an election, and we have a critical opportunity to reshape, reimagine, and redesign the future that we want to live in, through the power of our votes, our voices, and our actions. In that spirit, we wanted to create a rapid-response project that is an entry-point to that conversation about this moment of civil unrest, divisions of ideas and values, and deep cultural shifts.
