Premiere World Premiere
Production Language English
Country of Origin United States
Description Created in the vein of Whitney White’s Macbeth in Stride (commissioned by American Repertory Theater as the first in a series of works), this staged concert combines Shakespeare’s words with White’s original text and music. The title, taken from a passage attributed to Shakespeare, is one of the earliest known and most impassioned defenses of a compassionate refugee policy. The performance explores themes of immigration, borders, and crossings, and the celebration that unexpected human connections can ultimately bring. The presentation includes a conversation between Whitney White and Phyllida Lloyd. Part of Rolex Arts Weekend.
