Free Previews (Sept 4 at 5:30 & 7:30) of Sojourn's BUILT (participatory civic-planning focused performance) at South Waterfront

Sojourn Theatre is offering two FREE SNEAK PREVIEW PERFORMANCES of our world premiere production BUILT at the South Waterfront's Discovery Center on Thursday September 4th. The show is part of PICA's TBA Festival from Sep 5-7....but we're offering our non-profit colleagues this special advance peek.

Sojourn Theatre's BUILT is a 75-minute, site-responsive, participatory civic planning adventure...think performance spectacle meets game night at an urban planning summer social. Sojourn blends dance, video and public conversation to create a truly unique experience that brings strangers together to examine and play through the question: as we add 100 million to the U.S. population in the next 30-40 years, where will we live?
