Earlier this month several young men from The Fellowship Initiative had the opportunity to take in a bit of theatrics with City of Dallas Office of Arts & Cultural partner, South Dallas Cultural Center. The Fellows had the opportunity to get up close and personal with the production crew and cast of Dot. Presented by Soul Rep Theatre Company , Dot is a heart-warming and heartbreaking stage play confronts a family who must come together while coming to terms with the matriarch’s illness and decline. The evening started with a “ClapBack” where subject experts held a round table Q & A session on how to recognize signs of the disease and ways to find support through various resources in Dallas.
Chase Fellow Mentor, Ronald Lewis, shared his own personal experience of dealing with the disease. TFI Program Manager Sean Walker stated that his family had dealt with finding care for loved ones and although the Fellows might not be facing this in their home now, they will be well prepared when it comes up. Dot runs through December 22, and don’t be surprised if you recognized one of the actors, Dallas City of Learning’s very own Program Manager Sergio Antonia Garcia as “Adam,” Garcia’s character becomes the balance to the family offering support to the entire family during the life changing events.
