Where is home : birds of passage
Where is home : birds of passage uses dance, durational performance, installation and storytelling to interrogate how immigrants are consistently stereotyped, exoticized, labeled, othered and shamed. Created and performed by lauded choreographer and hybrid performance artist Alice Gosti, the piece explores alternative narratives for immigrants asked to perform their culture’s stereotypes, investigating the structural racism being perpetuated by the use of these labels and the ‘othering’ of immigrants. This 3-hour performance spectacle examines the history of Italian-American immigration to the US. Using Italian culture as the core narrative, birds of passage will subvert this theme and then transcend it: sparking connections amongst immigrants of all cultures and proposing new ways for non-immigrants to engage and identify with these stories.
This piece focuses on immigration to the U.S. and the immigrant experience. We want to invite those who identify as an immigrant to join us regardless of economic circumstances.
