Athens, Greece. Now in its second incarnation, Multiverso #2 expands the stories of these artists, and invites the audience to meet them, share unique interpretations of the immigrant experience and engage in an interactive exchange with them. The company for this presentation, which has been meeting together on Zoom since September 2020, includes Afghani, Bangladeshi, and Pakistani artists now living in Athens, Greece; Venezuelan and Chilean artists relocated in Italy; and asylum seekers waiting at the Tijuana border for passage to new lives in the United States.
This event is presented as a part of Re-Fest, CultureHub’s annual festival that brings artists, activists, and technologists together to explore our role in re-shaping the future. Friday, June 11 9pm Greek Time 8pm CEST 2pm ET / 11am PT
