June 29th/30th, FADE, Open Doors Reality Poets, Howe Theatre, MSTDA

With performances beginning June 29th, the Open Doors Reality Poets from Coler Hospital are joined by World Slam Finalist Joel François in FADE, a new and original play that delivers "realness, resilience and healing with a hip-hop beat." Three shows are scheduled for the Main Street Theatre & Dance Alliance Howe Theatre in the Cultural Center, 548 Main Street, Roosevelt Island.

Based on the experiences of men who use wheelchairs because of gun violence, FADE takes you into The Barbershop—a place where humor, courage and wisdom transform tragedy and injustice into a redemptive force. Co-written by OPEN DOORS Reality Poets and World Slam Finalist Joel François, FADE moves through time “before and after the chair” to deliver a message of realness, resilience and healing with a hip-hop beat!

“We gave our bodies to the block and the streets took half.” - OPEN DOORS Reality Poet King Tito Love

EVENT DETAILS:
When: Saturday, June 29th, 3pm & 7pm; 6pm reception with Reality Poets

Tickets are now available at the Open Doors Website for all three shows. Note: Roosevelt Island residents and students scroll down for half-price tickets.
