adults and youth 10 years or older
Friday + Saturday, Sept. 9 + 10, 7pm, New Engand Youth Theater
Migraciones / Migrations follows a photojournalist’s journey to learn the story of refugees migrating across sand, water, and shadows.
Migraciones / Migrations is performed on stage by multidisciplinary puppeteers, Sofía Padilla and Davey T. Steinman. The photojournalist protagonist, Rubén, is a human-size body puppet made of thermoplastic, built and performed by Padilla. Rubén uses his camera to take photos on stage, which appear as projections offering a lens for the audience to see Rubén’s migrant subjects. These projected photos transform into live sand drawings and shadow puppetry.
