BATON ROUGE (NBC33) — Sojourn Theatre will present “How to End Poverty in 60 Minutes” at the Hopkins Black Box theatre, 137 Coates Hall at LSU on Friday, Feb. 21, at 4:30 p.m. and Saturday, Feb. 22, at 7:30 p.m.
“How to End Poverty in 60 Minutes” is a performance project co-produced with LSU students and faculty from the Department of Communication Studies.
The performance challenges audiences with the question: How do you attack the problem of poverty in America?
Audiences will listen, explore, and choose how to spend money generated from the performance's box office donations.
The performance is an experiment in dialogue, collective decision-making, and the potential for art to make the world a better place.
Bryan McCann, assistant professor of communication studies at LSU, explained, “The performance will bring activists, experts and other members of the Baton Rouge and LSU communities together to discuss strategies to combat poverty in our community.”
