Featured Artist/Choreographer
Parmida Ziaei

Selected Choreography: Journey

Journey is a performance, centered around the concept of immigration but through a more universal and fluid lens. Journey explores what it means to leave something behind – a loved one, a home, or our past selves. It’s about what happens when you decide to stay, and what happens when you leave. The performance aims to question our concept of immigration more globally and compassionately, and also leaves room for the audiences to simply feel the emotions though movement and visuals.
