Brief encounters between immigrants and refugees from three different continents that wouldn’t be able to meet otherwise. Spatial and linguistic barriers are overcome in a live streaming performance that uses video conferencing systems as artistic platforms.
A Station Athens Group & Τhe Trojan Women Project, a program of La MaΜa, ΝΥC in a collaboration for an in progress live streaming performance at 20/12 @ 21:00 in Greece / 2:00EST
Multiverso was created by a collective of eight immigrant and refugee artists from disparate geographic locations who could never have come together in any other time. Through a series of Zoom encounters, they have combined their own stories, visual art, and music into a live streamed and prerecorded event that reflects common struggles, common journeys, and a desire to make art in a new life.
