Tunxis Community College invites the community to “In My Shoes,” a free performance by The Judy Dworin Performance Project on March 13 at 10 a.m. in Founders Hall. Seating is available on a first come, first served basis.
“In My Shoes” brings the voices of women in and outside of prison to the stage in spoken word, dance and song and asks audiences to engage in what it would be like to be in someone else’s shoes as it challenges us to explore issues of criminal justice from the stance of our common humanity.
The piece is described as “an authentic, provocative, soul-searching journey through the twists and turns of the walk to prison and back and what it means to be truly free.”
“In My Shoes” is performed by women who have reentered the community from York Correctional Institution joined by the Judy Dworin Performance Project’s ensemble.
The Judy Dworin Performance Project is an award-winning organization of professional artists based in Hartford whose work on stage, in schools and in prison communities sparks awareness about social issues and provides compelling experiences through multi-arts performance and residencies in the community.
From fine arts, health, and technology to liberal arts & sciences programs, Tunxis offers over 60 associate’s degrees and certificates, providing critical thinking and problem-solving skills that prepare students for transfer to bachelor’s degree programs and employment in areas with industry need. Tunxis is located at the junction of Routes 6 and 177 in Farmington. For directions and campus map, visit
