Performances will be held , 15, 21 and 22 at .ZUZI! Theater, 738 N 5th Ave, Tucson
A theatrical docudrama exploring human migration and our efforts to claim home, opens in a collaborative workshop production with ZUZI! Dance Company.
Playwright Eugenia Woods utilized input from refugee, immigrant and indigenous communities to shape this theatrical work. Blending actual interview material with dramatic writing, Woods' play weaves together stories of 5 central characters from Mexico, The Hopi Nation, China, Zimbabwe, and one composite character representing the voices of refugee women from Iraq, Egypt, Ethiopia and the Democratic Republic of Congo. The interactive performance asks audiences to consider what compels us to leave home, what are we forced to leave behind, and how do we attempt to create a new home in a foreign land.
Director Marc David Pinate of Borderlands Theater and Choreographer Nanette Robinson of ZUZI! are partnering in creating the physical language of the play.
