The Moss Arts Center at Virginia Tech continues their 2021 Spring HomeStage Series with the virtual play "CARTOGRAPHY" on Thursday, April 15, 2021.

"Cartography explores a world alive with transitions and movement by characters speaking their minds; representing those often made purposely invisible by others...A wonder of [theatre-making], Cartography is a production full of cracking story-telling..."
— DC Metro

Inflatable rafts on the Mediterranean. Family photos hidden carefully in a backpack. Hear the stories of young refugees when new theatre work "Cartography" asks what part we play in the lives of young people who set out into the unsure waters of their futures. Streaming directly to your home, this multimedia play brings a world alive with movement and migration as the effects of climate change, war, and poverty give shape to where we’ve come from and where we’re going. Conceived and created by Kaneza Schaal and Christopher Myers

This free event will be followed by a moderated discussion with the performers and creators of the work.

The New York Times reports there are more displaced people scattered throughout the globe now than at any time in recorded history. For each person, the journey to find a place to lay one’s head is just the beginning of a longer journey to discover oneself and define one’s place in a world of ever shifting borders and ceaseless conflicts. In their work with children who migrated to Munich on their own, artists Kaneza Schaal and Christopher Myers found that cartography and storytelling provided the young people a framework from which to unpack the complexities of their maps both internal and geographic.

A performance rooted in the commonalities of migration and the concrete and metaphorical mapping at the center of all of these worlds in motion, Cartography invites audiences to consider the maps we all have yet to draw.
