Kat Rohrer directs Interactive Human Trafficking Play in Florida
GreenKat Productions is happy to announce that Kat Rohrer will be directing "Walking in their Footsteps" an interactive theater piece about Human Trafficking in Jacksonville, FL.
The play was first conceived in 2009 by Ann Lien and Kat Rohrer as an event for Freedom Week 2009 at the Museum of Tolerance in New York.
Presented at the Florida Coastal School of Law, Art Works for Freedom, The Freed Firm and GreenKat Productions, “Walking in Their Footsteps” immerses audience members in the experience, assigning them “characters” and shuttling them through a series of stations, from the friendly lures of the job recruitment stage to dehumanizing objectification to being abused and trapped, both emotionally and physically. All of these stages characterize modern slavery.
The performance will be followed by a debriefing and Q&A, explaining what the audience has just experienced in the context of the third-largest—and fastest-growing—criminal industry in the world.
This performance is made possible by the generous support of:
