Revolutions International Theatre Festival: Migrant Songs

7:30 pm 

Migrant Songs is a choral piece based on stories of migration, both human and non-human. Specifically, the project explores the relationship between the songs of human and bird migration, through oral interviews gathering stories and songs from migrants who currently live in the Albuquerque area and research and field recordings of birds in northern New Mexico, and bringing the songs of migrants into inter-species dialogue through the creation of a choir performance. The work highlights the stories and songs that cut across different migration histories, tying Hispanic culture in historic and contemporary relationships to Asian, African, and Middle Eastern culture within the New Mexican context.

Free and open to the public
