Act in the Public Heart, A Lawyer's Journey - Seattle Live Performance - Highly Acclaimed One-Woman-Show


After two acclaimed sold out shows in December,Ffranca Baroni presents again her one-woman show at the Jewelbox Theater on Thursday, February 1 and Friday, February 9, 2018 at 7:30 pm. Described by audience members as “magnificent, compelling, relevant, magical, life-changing, absolutely brilliant, extraordinary…” and much more. Be prepared to hear your heart whisper, feel into your body and explore what has the potential to transform us and tackle some of the most complex problems of our time… A delicate mix of drama and comedy, Act in the Public Heart is a personal journey on the surface, yet it reveals itself to be much more than that- a multi-layered universal journey providing inspiration and a refreshing context about how to navigate issues of political disillusionment, social injustice and fear. Written and performed by actress, award-winning author and immigration attorney, Franca Baroni, and directed by Simone Bruyere Fraser, Act in the Public Heart gives audiences permission to examine the current state of our world through a heart-centered lens. Baroni weaves a compelling tale of discovering the greater heart of humanity through her personal and collective quest for freedom and justice. Heart and law is often deemed an oxymoron…yet Baroni shows us a different perspective and how the power of the heart has the potential to transform our legal and political systems at large where justice and freedom become an actual experience rather than a fleeting aspiration.
