NOVEMBER 14*, 15, 21 AND 22

7:30 p.m.

@ ZUZI! THEATER  in the Historic Y

738 N Fifth Ave

Tickets are $15-18 with group rates available for 8 or more.

THE MIGRATION PROJECT is a theatrical docudrama exploring human migration and our efforts to claim home.

Playwright Eugenia Woods utilized input from refugee, immigrant and indigenous communities to shape this theatrical work. The 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. Blending actual interview material with dramatic writing, Woods' play examines what compels these characters to leave home, what they are forced to leave behind, and how they 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, set against Artist/Scenic Designer Wesley Creigh's sculptural installation.

In the past year, THE MIGRATION PROJECT has engaged community participation through public art activities at The Tucson Museum of Art, the Hopi Foundation's Owl and Panther Project and ZUZI! Dance Company. Woods has been gathering data for the project for over a year, interviewing migrants who have left their homes for safety, for survival, for love, for freedom, for peace, for a sustainable relationship of self to place.



* Opening night is fully booked.  Wait list is available.
