Paying homage to ordinary Americans with extraordinary legacies, the National Constitution Center has created a groundbreaking visitor experience that combines a must-see, multimedia exhibition from the Japanese American National Museum with an original, world premiere theatrical production. Fighting for Democracy: Who is the “We” in “We the People”? traces the real-life experiences of seven diverse citizens who bravely fought for equality, freedom and justice overseas and at home during the World War II era. Their compelling stories come to life in an innovative exhibit-theater hybrid, which connects powerfully to current debates about immigration, citizenship and civil rights in America.
The National Constitution Center has invited IMTAL members to experience the exhibit and its accompanying performances, and afterwards join the staff of NCC for a frank discussion exploring the fascinating process the team underwent as they developed this remarkable piece of theatre. Get an inside look at the obstacles that challenged the work to be different (but better!) than originally planned – a timely topic for any Museum looking to develop innovative programming despite the tough economic times.
