(on-demand video series)

A physically poetic adaptation of Yuyi Morales’ story that tells of resilience, hope and the courage it takes to find one’s voice when navigating a new place. DREAMERS honors the passion, strength, and hope that is born from the challenges experienced in an immigrant's journey and reminds us that, "Someday we will become something we haven't even yet imagined."

Told through a blend of storytelling, toy theatre, collage, and video projections, the bilingual story moves back and forth between the world of the artist and the world of her story as she reveals and recalls how she (and her baby!) gained a foothold in a new country through a love of reading. With the love of each other and the power of words, this family creates a new world of possibilities that allows them to continue to dream of a new future for themselves.

You Make The Difference

"The arts help us understand ourselves as human beings. If you look at how we've ever documented our existence, it's all through an art form."
