Housed in the St. Stephen’s Human Services Building, zAmya Theater Project is made up of artists who have been or currently are struggling with homelessness. This week, the group will celebrate the culmination of its residency at Minneapolis Central Library with a performance. Second Chance was created through workshops conducted at the library, where a cast collaborated with a team of professional theater artists, including playwright Carlyle Brown, choreographer Leah Nelson, and director Maren Ward. With short scenes, songs, humor, and spoken word, the piece explores what it means to get a second chance in life. See it this week at the amphitheater outside.
