Migration Stories

Migration Stories is a collection of unique and sacred stories honoring the transformational experiences of ten artists. This collaborative performance developed from the Movement as Language Dance Program, where community members were guided through movement exercises and encouraged to develop their own choreography as a way of storytelling. When words are not enough - movement becomes our common language. The piece examines migration from our unique perspectives. Every human experiences migration in one way or another, for some movers the migration experience is literal, moving from one country to another, for others it is a recovery from an accident, the transition to parenthood, or their relationship to a butterfly migrating from Mni Sota to Mexico. We invite you to witness with compassion our vulnerable memories that seek to speak.

Masks will be required to attend this performance.
