Described by audience members as magnificent, compelling, relevant, magical, life-changing, absolutely brilliant, extraordinary and much more, Franca Baroni’s new one-woman show is back at the Jewelbox Theater in an updated version after a successful premiere in December.
Be prepared to hear your heart whisper, feel into your body and explore what has the potential to transform us and tackle some of the most complex problems of our time
A delicate mix of drama and comedy, ACT IN THE PUBLIC HEART is a personal journey on the surface, yet it reveals itself to be much more than that- a multi-layered universal journey providing inspiration and a refreshing context about how to navigate issues of political disillusionment, social injustice and fear.
Written and performed by actress, award-winning author and immigration attorney, Franca Baroni, and directed by Simone Bruyere Fraser, ACT IN THE PUBLIC HEART gives audiences permission to examine the current state of our world through a heart-centered lens. Baroni weaves a compelling tale of discovering the greater heart of humanity through her personal and collective quest for freedom and justice.
Heart and law is often deemed an oxymoronyet Baroni shows us a different perspective and how the power of the heart has the potential to transform our legal and political systems at large where justice and freedom become an actual experience rather than a fleeting aspiration.
