ARTISTS PERFORMING TRUTH TO POWER The 2016 election inspired a broad-based Resistance not seen in the United States in decades. People from all walks of life have been protesting, marching, mobilizing, and organizing in an effort to take back the country and create a more compassionate and just world. Artists are vital to this work. This fall, the American Repertory Theater, in collaboration with the literary magazine Pangyrus, welcomes the second season of Resistance Mic!, a series of intimate, curated evenings where a diverse collective of artists will take the stage to perform truth to power in these troubled times. Launched on November 9, 2017—the one-year anniversary of the day after the 2016 election—Resistance Mic! is part of the A.R.T. of Human Rights series, an ongoing collaboration between the American Repertory Theater and Harvard Kennedy School’s Carr Center for Human Rights Policy, Hosted by Timothy Patrick McCarthy. During 2018/19, Resistance Mic! will take place on Tuesdays (September 25, November 13, February 19, and April 16) at 8PM with a 7:30PM door time at OBERON, A.R.T.’s second stage.
