UMS announces No Safety Net 2.0, a three-week festival of four provocative theater productions that foster timely conversations around topical social themes that will be held January 22-February 8, 2020 on the University of Michigan campus.
The productions include Javaad Alipoor’s The Believers Are But Brothers (masculinity and internet radicalization); Tania El Khoury’s As Far As My Fingertips Take Me (refugee crisis); Lee Minora’s White Feminist (race, feminism, and privilege); and Half Straddle’s Is This A Room: Reality Winner Verbatim Transcription (patriotism, interrogation, whistle-blowing). In addition to the performances, audience members will have an opportunity to engage in open dialogue and conversation with both artists and other audience members during several events presented in conjunction with the performances. Those events will be announced this fall.
