2.2 Square Miles of Soul: Voices of Orange premieres May 18th

2.2 Square Miles of Soul: Voices of Orange is a new Undesirable Elements production premiering virtually at Luna Stage written and directed by Christina Bixland and Matthew Martinez in collaboration with Turron Kofi Alleyne and the cast. 

A powerful documentary film exploring the changing face of Orange, New Jersey, told through first-hand narratives of six former and current residents of Orange, as they reflect on the community they all still think of as home. Bearing witness to the social, political, and economic forces that shaped the community over the course of the last century, including historic disinvestment, demographic change, and the fight for representative government, 2.2 Square Miles of Soul investigates the intersection of personal and political histories, as well as the resistance and resilience of the people of Orange.

2.2 Square Miles of Soul: Voices of Orange will be streaming live on Luna's website. Previews begin Friday May 14, and the piece premieres on Tuesday May 18th and will be available for streaming until Sunday, May 23rd.

Tickets are available through Luna Stage on a pay-what-you-wish basis and can be reserved here.

There will be a talkback with the Creative Team and Storytellers on Tuesday, May 18th at 7pm and Sunday, May 23rd at 3pm. More information on how to attend the talkbacks will be available here.
