[Refugee Nation] Twin Cities arrival: October, 2010
TeAda Production's Refugee Nation is coming in October! This is an interdisciplinary/multi-media collaboration exploring the impact of war, refugees, global politics and U.S. citizenship. It has performed across the United States, but this will be the first time it has ever been presented in Minnesota.
The actors collected oral histories and use performances to reveal connections between the U.S. and Laos. The play brings voice to a community typically excluded from both mainstream and Asian American textbooks and art.
Presenting their very personal reconstructed memories, Refugee Nation seeks to create a performance to create dialogue about the Laotian community to promote restorative justice. They'll be performing at Intermedia Arts thanks to cooperation with local grassroots organizers, Pangea World Theater and the Lao Assistance Center. This production will also include the Legacies of War exhibit. You can visit them online at http://www.refugeenation.com
