A two-part event that reminds us that everyone has a story to share.


On Jan 26, get a behind-the-scenes experience as you attend a dress rehearsal for the new production of Invisible Cities, which premieres as part of The Great Northern festival Jan 27-28. This collaborative reimagining of Italo Calvino’s novel interweaves cultural perspectives with a dynamic group of dance artists—Ranee and Aparna Ramaswamy (Bharatanatyam), Berit Ahlgren (Gaga), Alanna Morris (Modern), Joseph Tran (Breaking)—and visual artist, Kevork Mourad, who creates Invisible Cities’ interactive, immersive projections in real-time.


On Jan 27-28, experience one of the Invisible Cities performances at The Cowles Center.


On Feb 15, join the Invisible Cities choreographers, all second-generation members of immigrant families, in Story Stitch by Green Card Voices—a card game that facilitates the exchange of stories between immigrants, refugees and their new neighbors. Story Stitch serves as a guided storytelling activity that connects and builds empathy between people of different cultural backgrounds through the art of storytelling. Dinner and parking will be provided on this date. 

This two-part event is open to the public and to community partner groups and is recommended for ages 10 and older.


Green Card Voices is a Minneapolis based, nationally growing non-profit that was born from the idea that the broad narrative of current immigrants should be communicated in a way true to each immigrant’s story. Green Card Voices seeks to be a new lens for those in the immigration dialogue.
