Northwestern MLK Dream Week
On January 21, 2015, in collaboration with Northwestern School of Law and the Black Law Students Association, Collaboraction put on a night only performance of Crime Scene Chicago: Let Hope Rise at Thorne Auditorium as part of MLK Dream Week. An amalgam of the original Crime Scene and the Let Hope Rise Tours, this performance featured up to date material and was seen by over 500 people.
Led by Artistic Director Anthony Moseley, the newly revised script from Moseley and co-deviser Adam Seidel was brought to life by original cast members Scott Baity and Luis Crespo, tour returnees Brian Keys, Nat Swift, and Annie Pritchard, and newcomer Celeste Cooper.
The invigorating Town Hall Discussion that followed included some incredible artists/activists featured in Crime Scene including Sammy Rangel (former member of the Maniac Latin Disciples and founder of Formers Annonymous) and Jessica Disu, aka FM Supreme (Chicago based Hip-Hop and Peace Activist, two-time Louder Than a Bomb winner, and founder of the International Peace Movement).
