Designed for audiences young and old, Cartography is a sumptuous and deeply felt exploration of life through the eyes of several refugees. Journey with four young people as they leave their worlds behind and begin anew. Created by Brooklyn-based theater artist Kaneza Schaal and author Christopher Myers, drawn from their work with refugee youth in the US and internationally, this visually stunning show combines simple storytelling with interactive video technology to engage the audience from start to finish. Performed by a diverse company of actors from El Salvador, Syria, Lebanon, and Rwanda, this is theater for our times at its most relevant.
The Flynn's presentation of Cartography is supported by the New England Foundation for the Arts through the New England Arts Resilience Fund, part of the United States Regional Arts Resilience Fund, an initiative of the U.S. Regional Arts Organizations and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, with major funding from the federal CARES Act and the American Rescue Plan Act from the National Endowment for the Arts.
