There are many ways to get the message out about hunger in our community and in our world. One class at the University of New Mexico's Department of Theater and Dance put together a play about hunger. Students in the class, entitled "Hunger: A Theatrical Exploration," engaged in discussions, made connections and responded to various perspectives on “hunger” to create a full-scale production, entitled Hungry Machine.
The piece will be presented on Thursday, May 1, at the Out Ch'yonda Performance Space, 929 Fourth St. SW (Barelas) in Albuquerque, at 6:00 p.m. Suggested donation is a bag of non-perishable food.
The class, part of UNM's Research Service Learning Program (RSLP), is taught by Anna Saggese and Riti Sachdeva.
There will be a table to write letters about the Millennium Development Goals and the Global Poverty Act.
