Written by members of Soul Rep’s writing consortium, The Freedmans is a signature production created to commemorate the opening of Dallas' Freedman's Memorial 20 years ago and to pay homage to our city's black pioneers and early Freedman's community of the late 19th and early 20th Century. The acclaimed production is comprised of compelling and colorful true and imagined stories told through poetry, monologue, song and dance. It is appropriate for ALL audiences, ages, ethnicities.
This is the third season of the Elevator Project, which started in 2014 to provide much-needed performance space in the Arts District for small and emerging Dallas-based performing arts groups. The Center presents this innovative series with support from the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs.
