A word from the director
“As a creator, I had always been fascinated by the power of visual storytelling. Growing up, I had always seen the world through the lens of a camera, an internal camera. My photographic memory allowed me to capture moments and create postcards in my mind, each telling a different story.
To convey the complex theme of immigration in the US, I decided to utilize shadows, lights, body language, silences and my love for Greek Tragedies. These elements tell the story of Cherise Jacobs and Jorge Sosa’s “I am a Dreamer who no longer dreams”. Shadows that symbolize the profound impact of immigration on individuals. Body language that becomes a language on it’s own: internal battles, aspirations and fears. Silences that capture the essence of the opera: each pause allows the audience to reflect upon each character’s journey. Greek Tragedies that are so close to style and thematic structure of this beautiful work.
This is my story, but also the story of millions of immigrants in the US.”
