UIC Theatre Dept. presents florissant & canfield
By Kristiana Rae Colón
Directed by Derrick Sanders
At the intersection of tear gas and teddy bear memorials, a loose alliance of neighbors in Ferguson, Missouri, find themselves hurled into the national spotlight. Documenting the wild, messy birth of a civil rights renaissance in a digital age and the vanguard of the Black Lives Matter movement, Colon’s drama is a timely, powerful and real.
Directed by Jeff Award-winner and UIC theatre faculty member Derrick Sanders. Playwright Kristiana Rae Colón is a poet, playwright, actor, educator, Cave Canem Fellow and co-director of the#LetUsBreathe Collective.
