Brave Little Company presents The Big Us Project
The Big Us Project is a unique, community-driven, devised theatre piece being created by 100 members of Houston's refugee communities, including professional artists in all disciplines and first-time performers of all ages.
Staged in several rooms of the Southwest Multi-Service Center, an important community hub in Houston's diverse and vibrant Gulfton neighborhood, the piece offers audience members a glimpse of the world through the performers' eyes as well as a chance to start a one-on-one conversation. The piece includes voices representing a wide variety of cultures, including Houstonians originally from Syria, Iraq, Pakistan, Jordan, Afghanistan, Liberia, Mali, Sudan, Vietnam, Mexico, Guatemala, Congo, Burundi, Rwanda, and more. Working in teams to create interlinked "chapters" that audience members can encounter in the performance spaces, approximately 50 adults and 50 children will appear in the final performances.
Reservations are recommended due to space limitations.
