‘The BOX’ with Untiy

September 25th, 7:30 PM PDT
890 Belle Avenue at Dominican University of California

Unity SF has been gifted a limited number of tickets to this incredible performance. Join us by singing up threw the link bellow. 

‘The BOX’ is a piece of transformational theater that asks us to re-examine long-held notions of punishment.

The pandemic has invited all of us into a space of deeper empathy and understanding of the harmful impacts of isolation and, by extension, prison. Grantee Sarah Shourd and her team—with support from the Art for Justice Fund, the Pulitzer Center, and individual donors—present this national, pop-up tour of The BOX, a play based on true stories of resistance to solitary confinement and written by Shourd, a survivor.

The tour is organized in partnership with local campaigns across the country, with the goal of elevating, supporting, and maximizing their impact. Through theater, traveling visual art, and artistic ritual, EIT will create a space for collective healing. Each performance is followed by a survivor-led healing circle focusing on imagining ways to address and repair harm in line with transformative justice.
