in development: Refuge by Andrew Rosendorf

Join Curious and our partners for in-development workshop readings of Refuge. This highly collaborative project brings together artists to fuse two languages, puppets, and music into a highly theatrical event. The play chronicles the harrowing journey one young Honduran girl takes as she crosses the US border into the inhospitable, barren land of Texas, tackling the immigration crisis on the border with a beautiful unique lens.

La obra narra el desgarrador viaje que una joven Hondureña hace mientras cruza la frontera de los EE. UU. Hacia la tierra inhóspita e esteril de Texas, abordando la crisis de inmigración en la frontera a través de lentes únicos.
