Refugee Nation returns to Minneapolis

This will be a very special New Year for the Lao community as we welcome the Year of the Horse. Intermedia Arts is bringing back the acclaimed play Refugee Nation after 4 years to Minnesota, and they really hope to connect with old friends and new ones this time around.

Told through a series of skits, dialogues and experimental performances, Refugee Nation is about a young generation seeking to understand their history and a community healing from the traumas of war.

Over 1,000 people came to see this play the last time it came to Minnesota. In this iteration, guest performances will be performed by Saymoukda Duangphouxay Vongsay, Karimi Robert, Ibrahim Kaba, and more.

This production was made possible in part by National Performance Network (NPN) Performance Residency Program and by a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund. A grant from the National Endowment for the Arts also made this year’s presentation possible.

Tickets are on sale now at:

It will only be presented 8 times, from April 10-13 and April 17-20. The Sunday shows are at 2:30 in the afternoon. The Thursday, Friday and Saturday shows start at 8pm promptly. Tickets are $15 at the door, although $12 advance, student and senior discounts are available.
