Crossing: Stories of Immigration

Continuum Dance Project, in collaboration with visual artist Myrna Balk, presents a new evening-length dance/theatre work examining contemporary stories of immigration, culminating in a series of live streamed events in partnership with Pao Arts Center. This project is made possible by a Live Arts Boston grant from the Boston Foundation.

“Crossing: Stories of Immigration” is choreographed by Adriane Brayton and Fernadina Chan in collaboration with the dancers. Using Balk’s installation as an architectural environment for site-specific movement, this work is a cross-disciplinary exploration on the theme of immigration, further informed by text, images, personal stories and interviews.

To generate source material for this work, members of CDP interviewed immigrants personally connected to them. These immigrants come from 9 different counties including: Columbia,The Dominican Republic, Honduras, Italy, Jamaica, Kenya, Russia, The US Virgin Islands, and Vietnam. Excerpts from these interviews became the foundation of the soundtrack for the piece.
