Invisible Cities/Story Stitch
Feb 15, 2023
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.
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.
This event is a follow-up to Invisible Cities which premiered Jan 27-28 as part of The Great Northern festival.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.
Invisible Cities/Story Stitch is open to the public and to community partner groups and is recommended for ages 10 and older. Even if you missed the live performance, we encourage you to attend! A link to the Invisible Cities recording will be sent to all registered attendees and remain available until Feb 28.
