Cassils, along with community members, advocates, and allies, will physically push a 1,300 pound bronze monument, Resilience Of The 20%, to sites of resistance and places where violence against marginalized peoples have occurred in downtown Omaha. With the world premiere of Monument Push in Omaha, Cassils calls attention to overlooked trauma and the perseverance of the human spirit—raising questions about memory, witnessing, and forgotten histories.
The performance will begin and end at Bemis Center.
