Running Time: 1 Hour + 15 minute Post-performance Chat

First-generation immigrants with different cultural backgrounds have diverse perspectives of life in the US, but their voices are not often heard because many of them are English-language learners, working people with busy schedules, and outsiders who constantly try to navigate cultural differences. In fact, none of them are stereotypical immigrants. Their stories, ideas, questions, and conflicts make them unique human beings who have shared challenges and passions.

After eight months of research and community engagement, our findings are presented in A Sample of Immigrant Life. The performance by no means tries to represent the immigrant community or summarize immigrant experiences. Instead, it amplifies individual experiences re-rooting in New York City in a way based on extensive research because we agree that “personal is political”.

Through an original approach to online performance making, we are bringing you into a conversation, and a journey of reflection with us.

Created by immigrant artists and members from the University Settlement house community, A Sample of Immigrant Life is the culminating performance of The Square Theatre’s project The Art of Losing.

Devised and performed by Gloria Chao, Jiawen Hu, Jing Dong, Jose Valdez, Josephine Cho, Yusi Gao.

This event will also be live-streaming on Performance Project’s Facebook page. But we strongly encourage you to join our Zoom Webinar performance for the full experience. Streams of recording will be available on Jul 13 and 14, 6:00 PM-12PM EDT.
