The Migration Project - Jane Franklin Dance

  • Details

    The Migration Project explores stories of relocation. Whether it is a family history dating back multiple generations, or a recent relocation, we have in common the ‘pull’ to find better opportunity or the ‘push’ to leave because of no choice. The extraordinary increase in global migration over the past 500 years has left traces in our DNA.

    An immersive experience evolves as Jane Franklin Dance and voices from within the community share family histories and interact with locations inside the Durant Arts Center. Contained by the physical boundaries, the performance is viewed from different vantage points. The audience will participate from more than one stationary location.

    Rosemary Feit Covey’s art, originally shown as The 0 Project, is a large-scale sculptural piece meant to give voice to the underrepresented and traditionally ignored. Printed on Dupont Tyvek banner media, it is installed at several positions and in conjunction with the performers.

    Dawn Whitmore adds brief video statements containing hand-drawn images inspired by words and phrases provided by the interview participants. One such theme that re-echoes is “the American Dream.”
