What We Bring: Stories of Migration

What We Bring: Stories of Migration is a collaborative, multimedia ensemble performance piece that utilizes projected images, video, text, lighting, as well as soundscapes, dance, and live music to tell five distinct and braided stories. It presents the journeys of five immigrant artists who immigrated or whose families immigrated to the U.S., following the historic 1965 Hart-Celler immigration reform: Yahaya Kamate from Ivory Coast, Héctor Morales from Peru, Sahar Muradi from Afghanistan, Malini Srinivasan from India, and Lu Yu from China. 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.

LOCATION: Teatro SEA, Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural and Educational Center, 107 Suffolk Street, NY, NY
