A new theatrical work that explores the commonalities of migration and mapping at the center of worlds in motion. Created in collaboration with artist Kaneza Schaal and writer Christopher Myers, Cartography draws on their work with refugee youth.

For the whole family, Cartography aims to engage young audiences. Visual tools like map-making and inventory meet performance elements such as filmmaking and dancing; sculptures create an array of visual journeys; sound sensor technology responds to actors’ voices, activating a virtual storm; cellphones are used to mark memories and distances traveled. Developed in part at NYU Abu Dhabi, including the work of NYUADInteractive Media graduates.

The audience is invited to examine their own lives and the maps we have yet to draw.

This performance is for all ages.
