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.
MrJeffDess is a dynamic public speaker, author, emcee and professor of Haitian descent. The native New Yorker known as the Disruptive Educator has been performing on stages for over 10 years.
