A Breath for Humanity, directed and devised by Lauren Wells-Mann, is a collection of stories all exploring “breath.” How do class, gender, and racial barriers limit who gets to breathe easy? How do experiences of harm and anxiety restrict breath? What routines and actions can we take to heal, and to calm our breathing? Numerous Chicago artists collaborate to articulate the role breathing plays in our everyday lives through the lens of social media.
Runs: December 1st 7pm, CST- December 31st 7pm, CST
