What We Bring: Stories of Migration (Abbreviated Version)

What We Bring: A Collaborative Performance Piece (Abbreviated Version)
This abbreviated version of What We Bring (see above) presents the journeys of three artists–Yahaya Kamata, Héctor Morales, and Malini Srinivasan–who immigrated or whose families immigrated to the U.S., following the 1965 immigration reform law. Each artist’s story of migration is interwoven with performance of the art tradition they brought with them. “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 special outdoor performance is in conjunction with Madison Square Park Conservancy’s public art program Delirious Matter, featuring the work of artist Diana Al-Hadid.
