Produced by Tricklock Company, the Revolutions International Theatre Festival welcomes performance companies from all over the globe to perform and connect across cultures and communities. For the 19th annual festival, Tricklock and the NHCC present Migrant Songs.
Migrant Songs is a choral performance art piece that combines stories and songs from human and non-human migrants. This experimental visual and sound performance incorporates interviews with migrants living in the city of Albuquerque who come from many parts of the world, including Mexico, Cuba, El Salvador, Costa Rica, The Philippines, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Palestine, and Vietnam, to name a few. These stories of human migration are woven together with bird songs from the Rio Grande Valley of New Mexico to explore how we think about migration, our sense of home and dislocation, as well as the biological role of song in both humans and non-humans.
Free and open to the public
