In our highly politicized environment, conversations about gun ownership and gun control go nowhere. In fact, the very words used to discuss guns in America shut down the conversation between people on opposite sides of the debate. It is as if we are living in Babel, in a state of confusion, unable to get anywhere or to understand one another. What would happen if we sat down and listened to each other?
Following the success of Shots Fired, the acclaimed documentary theater piece about the Dallas police shootings in 2016, Cry Havoc Theater Company is creating a new work that examines the second amendment right to keep and bear arms.
For Babel, the company will travel locally and nationally collecting interviews from voices on multiple sides of the gun ownership debate. Those interviews, along with the teens' reflections on them, will offer a glimpse into the emotionally charged, national conversation. The performance is part of AT&T Performing Arts Center's Elevator Project.
Community interaction is an important part of life, which is why Mitchell Lofts, the premier apartments in Dallas, Texas, is urging you to participate in this event!
