Saturday, September 25th 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Playhouse Arts presents Migrations: Walking Together, a free original ensemble-created multi-disciplinary, multicultural performance event premiering September 25, 2021. It involves walking, dance, theater, movement, masks, puppets, poetry, narratives, and more.
The structure of this event is a procession: we will start at the Creamery District and finish with a celebratory parade at Valley West. The procession stops at various locations where different cultural groups will share their work, play, and culture. Masks and vaccinations required (there will be a vaccination clinic on site at Carlson Park).
Migrations will use the research and community outreach that Playhouse Arts continues to develop to broaden and deepen our relationships as humans. The Playhouse and their partners will look at who we are through the lens of migration in Humboldt, to find the connective tissue that binds us to this part of the earth today, and to look at the systemic inequities and history that have driven us to this point – to realize, to empathize, and to be compelled to just action.
Audience members can join us for the whole event, or they can choose what sections of the procession and cultural sharings to join. There will be a map and estimated times for each location coming soon.
The parade at the end of the procession will be for all of us to participate in and celebrate with music, giant puppets, and more! There will be food upon arrival.
