EVERY 28 HOURS

In Support of the #BlackLivesMatter movement

Company One presents EVERY 28 HOURS in collaboration with Oregon Shakespeare Festival and The One-Minute Play Festival at the Museum of Fine Arts

November 5, 2016 at 2pm

Remis Auditorium, Museum of Fine Arts

Every 28 hours in the United States, a man, woman, or child who identifies as black is murdered at the hands of a vigilante, security guard, or police officer. Born in Ferguson, MO, the EVERY 28 HOURS project consists of 80 one-minute plays inspired by the work and message of Black Lives Matter, written by 40-plus playwrights who are part of a national movement initiated by theatre companies across the country.

C1's Take

As urgent as it is cathartic, EVERY 28 HOURS seeks to provide a space where rage and healing can exist in tandem, where truth to power isn’t just spoken, but performed.

From the Collaborators: “We are in a time of change for the U.S. and the reflection on this current Civil Rights Movement is exciting because of the power and number of talented voices collaborating. Our project is informed by thoughtful leaders in activism, performance, civic leadership and communications. The work is hard and inspiring and necessary.” – Claudia Alick, Community Producer, Oregon Shakespeare Festival
