How do we navigate our worlds? We build maps of our histories, our memories, and our futures.

In 2016, theater director Kaneza Schaal and award-winning author for young people Christopher Myers flew to Munich, Germany, as 30,000 people were arriving in the city each day in the largest migration in recorded history. Listening to the stories of young refugees, they pondered how to create an artwork that placed all of us within this historical moment.

Combining simple storytelling with interactive video technology (audiences shape the onstage video projections with their own cell phones), Cartography maps the perilous physical journeys and the confusing interior journeys which brought five young people from their old homes to their new ones. Performed by a diverse company of actors from El Salvador, Syria, Lebanon, South Africa, and Rwanda, this is theater for our times, theater for all ages, theater at its most relevant.

The performance on Sunday, September 15 at 3pm will be a relaxed performance.
