Crime Scene: Breathe Life
Crime Scene: Breathe Life is Collaboraction’s new, one hour touring production based on its widely acclaimed 2015 mainstage premiere Crime Scene: The Next Chapter.
Breathe Life viscerally re-examines Chicago’s history of violent crime, while sharing five intimate portraits of real Chicagoans who have used their first-hand experiences with violence to become peacemakers and be a positive impact in the lives of others. Ultimately, Crime Scene: Breathe Life asks Chicago residents “what do you see?” when it comes to the city’s current crime epidemic, and challenges Chicagoans to discover new ways to work together to create lasting change.
Friday night shows will be preceded by a special youth afternoon workshop called Crime Scene: The Next Generation where young residents in the community are encouraged to come learn how to make devised theatre, and then they will be integrated into the on-stage performance that evening.
Also on Fridays, starting at 5 p.m., Collaboraction will present their signature Dome of Dance battle-dance tournament with DJ Shon Roka and a FREE Community Meal sponsored by Connie’s Pizza – a full spread – for 250 people.
