Writer, performer, educator, and director Jesse Bliss and her collaborators the Roots and Wings Project are dedicated to interdisciplinary storytelling that uplifts the voices of marginalized women and their unique struggles for justice and varieties of enduring grace. In their new production Luminous Streets, they not only highlight stories of downtown, they take the “stage” and the audience out into the neighborhood itself, guiding viewers through a series of theatrical vignettes at compelling Historic Core locations like The King Eddy and The Last Bookstore. Emotional and poetic, these stories of love, loss and the quest for justice are all the more impactful for the shared experience of these activated spaces.
