Co-commissioned by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and Arts Brookfield
HARBORED, written and directed by Jimmy Maize, is a site-specific theater piece that weaves together stories from the last two centuries of immigration in the U.S., integrating oral history, archived material and found texts. The piece is an epic collage of performance, music and movement with an original score by Heather Christian sung by the Downtown Voices Choir and movement by Wendy Seyb. 50+ performers tell the stories of twentieth-century author Willa Cather and her character Ántonia, Lewis and Clark yearning for the promise of the American West, and everyday citizens who all share a yearning to fulfill their dreams. Immigration stories will be gathered each day from passersby at Brookfield Place and integrated into the script that evening, tying the past to the present and making for an entirely new theatrical experience each time. Championing an immersive process of understanding and discovery, HARBORED redefines the ways in which we think about America’s past, present and future.
