Collaboraction: Crime Scene: Let Hope Rise 2014 Chicago Tour #StopTheViolence

Collaboraction: Crime Scene: Let Hope Rise 2014 Chicago Tour #StopTheViolence ft. BRICKHEADZ and Official BRICKHEADZ DJ: SHON ROKA

Crime Scene, Collaboraction's theatrical reaction to the violent crime in Chicago, will continue to incite change at a hyper local level as part of the Chicago Park District's Night Out in the Parks initiative this sumer. Crime Scene couples nonfiction source material such as interviews, articles, and online comments with true Chicago crimes to raise critical questions surrounding segregation, poverty, the news media, and popular culture. Artistic Director Anthony Moseley is re-conceiving the show for the 2014 summer parks tour to include up-to-the-minute stories of Chicago violence and those working to increase peace.

Universally lauded by press, the 2013 world premier of Crime Scene was described as "gripping, "direct, visceral, youthful and winningly honest" using "elements of history, testimony, song and hip-hop oration."
