Join Motus Theater at The Arts Hub in Lafayette, Colorado, for a special presentation of Boundless Truth: Women’s Stories of Freedom & Incarceration at 7pm. Autobiographical monologues from Motus Theater in which Black women leaders, who were formerly incarcerated, tell personal stories about the damage done in the name of justice. Special guest readers will stand in the shoes of a Boundless Truth monologist by co-reading their story. Musical response from a cappella singing duo Spirit of Grace. Featured monologists include Terri House, and Cynthia Randall.

Boundless Truth: Women’s Stories of Freedom & Incarceration is part of Motus Theater’s JustUs project. JustUs was developed by Motus Theater in 2019 and premiered as a keynote at the National Association of Community and Restorative Justice Conference in front of 1,600 stakeholders. Since then, the JustUs monologues have been featured in several national and global conferences and have been read and embraced by religious, social justice, civic and law enforcement leaders across the state. The powerful monologues explore themes such as racial profiling, inequality in the bond/bail system, human rights abuses in prisons, criminalizing substance abusers, and the systemic racism and poverty that pushes people into illicit economies.
