Arresting Life

 

To support the creation of the play Arresting Life (formerly I Want to Live) in a collaborative, intergenerational, bilingual, community-based setting to activate healing and social movement to interrupt the intersection of the school to prison and deportation pipeline, police violence, and racial profiling. Flores will create workshop space, performance pieces, and audience experiences designed to humanize and heal his own community. Arresting Life will culminate in a theatrical performance, exploring the lives of young brown and black folks arrested, harassed, and targeted by police, ultimately asking: how do folks live in a state of police brutality?
