Cartography

Tuesday, November 9th, 2021 at 12:30pm and 7pm

A 17-year-old boy from Syria wonders aloud if he ought to learn German, or will he be going home too soon for it to be of use. 
An 11-year-old girl from Afghanistan imagines that one day she could be a back-up dancer for Justin Bieber. Even this imagination is a conceptual leap for her parents, rural farmers from a small town far from the capital Kabul, the distance of which rivals the thousand-mile trek she just completed on foot. 
A boy from Mali imagines himself flying to all the great world cities he’s only seen in photos. 
One young woman draws the map of her journey to Munich, wavy blue lines between Turkey and Greece mark the night her brother slipped over the side of an inflatable raft into the cold hands of the Mediterranean. 
A girl cherishes the recording of her mother’s voice she keeps on her cell phone. 
All of these young people are making maps of their history, of their memories, and of their futures. 
Layered stories full of tragedy and wonder of young migrants from all over the world form the bases for a theatrical intervention, a scaffolding of sorts around which a performance rooted in the commonalities of migration, the intertwining of identities that are the byproduct of this current set of crises is created, and the concrete and metaphorical cartography at center of all of these worlds in motion.
Conceived and Created by Kaneza Schaal & Christopher Myers, Directed by Kaneza Schaal, Written & Designed by Christopher Myers, Produced by ArKtype / Thomas O. Kriegsmann
