About this event
Five young refugees set out searching for a new place to call home in this “stunning” (The New York Times) and timely theatrical work. Inspired by the artists’ creative work with refugees worldwide, this interactive performance charts a new map for its characters using visual arts, storytelling, and filmmaking. A truly innovative and visually spectacular performance, CARTOGRAPHY creates an onstage virtual storm that rises up in response to the actors’ voices, uses cell phones to depict memories being made, and features live sculpture creation to represent their journeys. From the minds of author and illustrator Christopher Myers and Mason Artist-in-Residence and director Kaneza Schaal comes “A wonder of theater-making…honest and authentic…full of cracking storytelling” (D.C. Metro Theater Arts).
