November 12 - November 21, 2021

Show Description:

Brokers Without Borders is a multiethnic, theatrical ensemble of former refugees who identify as cultural brokers, meaning that they act as a bridge between their own culture and another by translating and interpreting regularly for their family and community members. This project will address the divide by creating a cross-cultural original play that demonstrates the experience of navigating an entirely new world and the celebrations of finding success in a globalized community. The ensemble’s stories will combine to make a written history of young people who are bearing the responsibility of their families in addition to their own challenges.
