Stories from the Streets – performances by Andi and I
Andi and Al Tauber have been playing music together in a variety of contexts for over 30 years. Nearly half of that time has been devoted to developing and performing “Stories from the Streets” for Emmaus Ministries, a small faith-based organization working with men in survival prostitution in Chicago. Through monologues and songs based on interviews and personal experience, Andi and Al tell the stories of these men, often in their own words. They open a window into the lives of men that few in our society even know exist, allowing us to better understand them; to see them as human.
For this lecture, they will be presenting examples of their work (music and monologue), and talking about their process, goals, and results.
This presentation is free and open to the public.
