The Migration Project – Presented as part of the Torpedo Factory’s Community Partnership Program
Whether it is a family history dating back from multiple generations, or a recent relocation, we share similar experiences in the ‘pull’ to find better opportunity or the ‘push’ to leave because of no choice. The extraordinary increase in global migration over the past 500 years has left traces in our DNA. An immersive experience evolves as Jane Franklin Dance and voices from within the community share stories of relocation and interact with locations inside the Torpedo Factory Art Center. The performance is contained by the physical boundaries yet transforms in the process of being viewed from different vantage points.  The audience will participate from more than one stationary location.

The Big Meow
The Big Meow is the story of an ever-hopeful fluffball who desperately wants to belong to the band of neighborhood cats, but is ostracized for a “loud as a lion’s roar” meow.  The Big Meow is a story of hope, disappointment, courage and the need for belonging.  These simple themes are part of every neighborhood, but in this wonderful tale told through the experiences of  Little Cat, a potential weakness is a unique strength.

Black Ice
Human migration tracks a long history of upheaval because of major climatic shifts. The U.S. Department of Defense has called climate change “an urgent and growing threat to our national security, contributing to increased natural disaster, refugee flows, and conflicts over basic resources such as food and water.” We explore the movement of animals, birds, climate and the changing environment. Performances start at Theatre on the Run, 3700 S Four Mile Run Drive then conclude at a nearby location.
