Actor Danny Glover will host a special performance of "Salmon Woman" to benefit the American Indian Prison Project on Aug. 23, 2014. The piece is written and performed by Jeri Brunoe.

St. Paul, Minnesota (PRWEB) August 22, 2014

Jeri Brunoe, whose acting resume includes films such as Buffalo Soldiers, television appearances, commercials and various theater roles, will host a special performance of her one-woman show Salmon Woman at St. Pauls Ordway Center for the Performing Arts to benefit the American Indian Prison Project Working Group on Aug. 23, 2014. Brunoes friend and Buffalo Soldiers co-star Danny Glover will serve as host for the evening as well as appear at a special VIP reception with Brunoe following the performance.

"Salmon Woman" tells the story of one woman embarking on a life journey that echoes the transforming nature of the salmon. Through song, dance, and the narration of five characters, she tells the story of growing up on an Indian Reservation. From the dark, oceanic depths of sorrow to the healing light of calm waters, she braves the currents along many seasons of change to survive and finally thrive in triumph.

The one-night-only event takes place Saturday, Aug. 23, 2014, from 7 to 9 p.m. A VIP reception featuring both Glover and Brunoe will be held immediately following the performance from 9:15 to 10:15 p.m.

Tickets for the performance ($25) and the VIP reception ($75) are available through ordway.org or by calling the box office at 651-224-4222.

The goal of the American Indian Prison Project Working Group is to change federal legislation that denies incarcerated American Indian adults and juveniles access to their spiritual practices.
