We Are Proud to Present... (Free Preview)
We Are Proud to Present a Presentation About the Herero of Namibia, Formerly Known as South West Africa, From the German Sudwestafrika, Between the Years 1884-1915

By Jackie Sibblies Drury
Directed by Jesse Jou

November 30 - December 2 at 7:30pm
December 3 at 2:00pm

In the present day, an acting troupe comes together to create a performance about the little-known decimation of the Herero people in turn-of-the-century colonial Africa. As they stumble through their increasingly charged rehearsals, the performers begin to unravel the thorny knot of race and power that reaches from Sudwestafrika to modern America. At turns darkly comedic, wildly theatrical, and deeply moving, We Are Proud to Present... explores how the echoes of a forgotten history reverberate with us today.
