CONFINEMENTS explores the many ways we are cut off from full participation in life--from physical confinement to afflictions of the body; from the expectations of family to the habits of mind; and from social norms to the foundations of our identities. 

This original theatre piece showcases a collaboration among two groups of individuals who have experienced confinement in both drastically different and very similar ways. The creator/performers in the ensemble are comprised of five Cornell undergraduate students and three Cornell Prison Education students who have recently returned home from prison. Together, over a semester’s work, they have created a piece of theatre that is moving, insightful, warm, funny and provocative.

This online screening with live Q&A is free and open to the public.
