The Daily Camera is proud to support more than 100 local non-profit groups in our communities every year—including the Motus Theater, whose mission is to create original theater to facilitate dialogue on critical issues of our time and build alliances across diverse segments of our community.

Continuing throughout this week, the Motus Theater at the Center is presenting Shoebox Stories, a series of personal stories where actors stand in another person’s shoes by reading aloud their story, saying their words, and holding, for a moment, the weight that they carry.

Motus Theater will celebrate and recognize Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s fight for equality and civil rights this year by asking local leaders in Boulder County to stand in other people’s shoes.

Community leaders chosen by the Youth Opportunities Advisory Board, Boulder JCC, Center of the American West, Boulder Chamber, and League of Women Voters will be joining us on stage to read the stories of undocumented leaders, and amplifying their stories.

This promises to be a powerful presentation that you won’t want to miss. Performances take place Monday, Jan. 13 through Friday, Jan. 17 at 7 p.m. in the Grace Gamm Theater.
