Immigration Stories
Start Date: 9/13/2019Start Time: 7:30 PM

Event Description:

John Jay College & CUNY Dance Initiative in collaboration with Mari Meade Dance Collective
The World Premiere of Immigration Stories

Immigration stories, a series of dances based on true experiences about relocating to the United States, opens up the vastly different paths people take to come to this country. What began with a frustrating phone call for choreographer Mari Meade to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has evolved into a full evening of personal stories, music, and dance. From a young man who was born in Germany and lived in Ghana before making his way to New York, to a Russian woman who moved to Florida as a teenager, these individual stories expand the conversation around immigration in this highly politicized time. Weaving together interviews with original compositio    by Rosana Caban, Domenico Curcio, and Eran Sabo,  with additional music by Chino Amobi, immigration stories combines words and movement to question assumptions around cultural identity and what being "American" might really mean.
