We've teamed up with Uni2ACT to expand the Project to the performing arts!
Cierren los ojos, or Close your eyes is an original work written by the student-actors of Uni2ACT, the College of the Holy Cross's bilingual theater troupe. Inspired by both the No Evil Project and current events on campus and in the world, this play intertwines the stories of young people who are trying to make their way in a world that keeps changing the rules. Looking at the complicated issues that relate to the #metoo movement, racism and LGBTQ+ awareness specifically, Cierren los ojos challenges its audience to demand a world based on empathy and respect.
Uni2Act was founded as an intersectional space to respect and share the diverse stories of all students, especially those of Spanish-speaking communities and their experiences. By writing, producing, and performing original works, sometimes in collaboration with other artists, we aim to convey urgent messages of love, resilience, and change. We also seek to promote self-discovery, empathy, confidence, and hope. Therefore, any incidents of hate are the antithesis of our mission and who we strive to be at Holy Cross and beyond. We know you join us in our commitment to building a respectful and inclusive campus community.
