Immigration. Roots. Discrimination. Memory.
Conceived and directed by Argentinean choreographer Anabella Lenzu with photographic projections created by Todd Carroll, “The Grass is Always Greener…” is a gripping, polemical piece of dance theater that hashes the personal, practical, and political struggles of immigrants to the United States. The piece moves in between the turn of the twentieth century, during the great waves of immigration at Ellis Island, and modern day. In a non-linear approach, the work weaves in scenes from our current conflict on US immigration policy, bringing the contemporary debate into sharp relief against historical, forgotten experiences.
