Playhouse Arts presents Migrations, an original ensemble-created multi-disciplinary, multicultural performance event premiering September 25, 2021. It involves dance, theater, movement, masks, puppets, projections, 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.
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.
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.
We are so excited that events are happening again. Event details are being updated as information becomes available. Before making plans, please check the event or festival website or Facebook page.
