  Mother of Smoke at Pride Arts Center - The Broadway

Mother of Smoke

Pride Arts Center - The Broadway
4139 N. Broadway Chicago

In a city on fire, one woman laments the destruction of her house while another refuses to acknowledge the existence of a threat at all. Created in response to the global crisis of displacement, the promise of safety and the crumbling of the American Dream, Mother of Smoke delves into a mash-up of The Trojan Women and The Cherry Orchard to examine the conflicting forces relevant to violence and disparity present in Chicago now. The performers weave together these stories, original text, music and movement in order to create a new response to this violence and how it exists in our daily lives. Co-created with a team of writers, musicians and performers, Mother of Smoke is an epic performance of remembering, coming together and picking up the pieces.
