Where is home : birds of passage
November 1, 2019 @ 7:30 pm
This is a come-and-go performance, the doors will be open and concessions will be available in the lobby.
Where is home : birds of passage uses dance, durational performance, installation, and storytelling to interrogate how immigrants are consistently stereotyped, exoticized, labeled, othered, and shamed. The piece explores alternative narratives for immigrants asked to perform their culture’s stereotypes, investigating the structural racism perpetuated by the use of these labels and the ‘othering’ of immigrants. This 3-hour performance spectacle examines the history of Italian-American immigration to the US. Using Italian culture as the core narrative, birds of passage will subvert this theme and then transcend it: sparking connections among immigrants of all cultures and proposing new ways for non-immigrants to engage and identify with these stories.
