Hosted by Judith Sloan featuring performances by Alicia Waller, Bianca Vitale, Emily Wexler, Raffi Marhaba, Salomé Egas, Kimberly Morales, and excerpts from writing by youth from the International High School at LaGuardia Community College.
An evening of stories, songs, monologues about migration, refuge and finding home.
About the artists: Judith Sloan is co-founder of EarSay a non-profit dedicated to documenting and portraying stories of the uncelebrated. Sloan is an actress, audio artist, and educator who will present excerpts from It Can Happen Here and Crossing the BLVD with Sasha Boykin and Bianca Vitale. An American soprano, vocalist, and songwriter Alicia Waller seeks to spread the joy of singing through inventive performances that integrate a range of diverse cultural and “soul” music traditions. Her work centers on the practice of music diplomacy. ES Wex (Emily Wexler) is a Brooklyn-based queer femme vocalist, musician and song writer. She seeks to create spaces of healing, joy, contemplation, and empowerment through her music, and deeply values collaborations with other artists, young people, and the importance of building community through music. Raffi Marhaba is a trans nonbinary (they pronouns) vegan activist, proud Arab, graphic designer, poet, multi-media artist and most importantly… a big dreamer who makes things happen. Writers and performers Salomé Egas and Kimberly Morales will perform an excerpt from their collaborative work (with Donna Gary) Stereoflight, a play inspired by FUN collective’s individual experiences with immigration.
