Explores the 21st Century immigrant experiences using puppetry, movement, and masks. In this devised work, community members will perform original stories alongside theatre professionals.

This is a beautiful, sweet, poignant, and funny puppet show for all ages, and received wonderful reviews (see under). I went to see the performances 5 times!  — Masa
