Join us for DEEP BREATH, a tour de force performance by actor and spoken word artist, MrJeffDess, for Black History Month at Art House.

Art House Productions presents DEEP BREATH by MrJeffDess

Friday, February 10th at 8 PM Doors at 7:30 PM
Produced by Leah Jackson

Advance ticketing for General Admission is $15 and $20 at the door and $10 for Students/Seniors.

Eric Garner's last words were "I Can't Breathe." This piercing one-man poetic and theatrical show challenges the community to start the healing process as well as find answers. MrJeffDess presents a painfully honest performance inspired by the protest, hope, and sadness. DEEP BREATH directly engages with the audience and is a tour de force, energetic experience. Through intense storytelling, MrJeffDess pushes and almost dares the audience to take the deepest breaths possible in order to find answers.
