The audience walks into a multi room space. Each room looks, smells, sounds and generally feels like a different country: “China” is next door to “Palestine”, “Syria” is next to “Honduras”. Once in one of the rooms, the audience members put on a VR headset, and enter a dimension where they meet and interact with a person living in displacement and their surroundings.
It takes place today, in a safe house in Harlem where people are hiding to escape deportation. We embark on a journey with seven characters who are living in the US but are not yet safe. Each person is from a different country, religion, age and ethnicity. All of them are voluntarily stuck in the basement of a sanctuary to protect themselves from ICE. This group becomes an unlikely family united against unimaginable circumstances in pursuit of hope to exist again.
