In Welcoming the Stranger, Motus Theater’s undocumented monologists invite you to step into their shoes. Their monologues interrupt the dehumanizing and racist, anti-immigrant narratives. Four monologues will be read by special guest readers: Claudia Marchan, the E.D. of Northern Illinois JFON in the greater Chicago area with a background in community organizing, community development and financial management; Alba Jaramillo, the E.D. of Arizona JFON with her own theater company, Teatro Dignidad and a background in social justice, human rights and the arts; Rev. Mark Salvacion, the E.D. of Delaware Valley JFON (currently located in PA) and the Pastor of Historic St. George’s United Methodist Church in Old City Philadelphia; and Rev. Dr. Will Reed, the Board Chair for the Houston JFON and Pastor of the First United Methodist Church, Pasadena. Each monologue is followed by a musical response from Uruguayan guitar soloist, Elisa Garcia.
