We Are Proud To Present... at Artists Repertory Theatre
Guest host Alan Montecillo features a dynamic production of  We Are Proud to Present a Presentation About the Herero of Namibia, Formerly Known as South West Africa, From the German Sudwestafrika, Between the Years 1884-1915 by Jackie Sibblies Drury. This play runs through April 10th at Artists Repertory Theatre in Portland. Alan talks with director Kevin Jones and actors Chantal DeGroat and Chris Harder.

More about the play: Three African American and three white actors set out to improvise a story about the first colonial genocide of the 20th Century in Africa, but get lost in the reality of their undertaking. The unusual presentation, humor and inevitable discomfort of this provocative new play gripped theatre hubs like New York, Chicago, London, Washington D.C. and Seattle with its unique theatrical investigation of prejudice, power and perspective.
