About this Event

Meet Us Quickly follows the enormously successful run of The Wait Room, a work that explored the experiences of women with incarcerated loved ones. The Wait Room opened in San Francisco in April 2019 before traveling to the grounds outside of Sing Sing Pr*son in New York’s Hudson Valley in the fall, marking Flyaway’s East Coast debut.

Meet Us Quickly asks how Black and Jewish voices, including Jews who live at the intersection of both identities, can amplify the call for racial justice via an end to mass incarceration,” said Flyaway Artistic Director Jo Kreiter. Unfolding in three parts, Meet Us Quickly links the “caging of black bodies” in the United States, from the period of slavery through the current era of mass incarceration, to the dehumanization of Jews that flourished on both sides of the Atlantic throughout much of the 20th century and which is becoming prominent again today with the rise of white nationalism.

This is a free, public outdoor event. Audiences will maintain physical distancing while experiencing the performance outside of CounterPulse's building. Before you attend this event, please review CounterPulse’s latest Covid-19 Protocols for outdoor events here:
