What We Bring: A Collaborative Performance Piece

What We Bring is a collaborative, multimedia ensemble performance piece that utilizes projected images, video, text, lighting, as well as soundscapes and live music to tell five distinct and braided stories. It presents the journeys of five immigrant artists–Yahaya Kamate, Héctor Morales, Sahar Muradi, Malini Srinivasan, and Lu Yu–who immigrated or whose families immigrated to the U.S., following the 1965 immigration reform law. Each artist’s story of migration is interweaved with the art tradition they brought with them, symbolized by a precious object. “What We Bring” aims to add to the public discourse on immigration by de-centering the focus on the economic contributions of new immigrants to honoring their remarkable cultural contributions and influences. Directed by George Zavala.

This performance is part of City Lore’s current exhibit, What We Bring: New Immigrant Gifts.
