Insurgent Theatre Presents “In the Belly” at the 27 Social Centre

Saturday, March 24th 6pm

27 Social Centre (2727 W. 27th ave)

Join Denver ABC and the 27 Social Centre for a production of “In the Belly,” a play about prison abolition.

Admission is based on your ability to contribute. All funds benefit RedBird Prison Abolition (http://www.redbirdprisonabolition.org/)

This play contains violence, nudity, and other potentially triggering material that is a sad reality of the prison industrial complex.

Childcare and kid-friendly art activities will be available during the performance.

About the show:

“In the belly is where things digest, where they are broken down so their value can be extracted. This is where things are made to rot. If our society is a beast, its belly is the prison system. This work from Insurgent Theatre seeks to manifest imprisonment on stage, overlays it with critical analysis of the system, and follows up with in-depth discussion about abolishing prison in America.

Created in workshop by Weslie Coleman, Kate Pleuss, and Ben Turk, with assistance from Harmony Bench and Rebecca Riley.

Touring North America. Raising funds for RedBird Prison Abolition. Supporting prisoners in Ohio.”
