Track 13

Free Street Theater's Young Fugitives unit created this "playformance" using mime and physical-theater styles to address the February 2014 shooting death of 16-year-old Deonta Mackey by an off-duty Cook County Sheriff's sergeant whom Mackey and friends were trying to rob, along with the wave of high-profile police violence incidents since. Director Ricardo Gamboa and the young ensemble explore whether the eagerness of so many to dismiss young men of color as "thugs" helps create a self-perpetuating cycle.
