About This Show

Coming to America – a portrait gallery of women whose lives have been transformed, first by extraordinary events in their country of birth, and then by their response to America. Refugees. Immigrants, both legal and clandestine, they keep coming to America. Driven by war, genocide, repressive societies, they carve out new lives among us. But who are they? What does the “promised land” hold for them? Can it fulfill those promises? Coming to America – transformations visits nine extraordinary women from Armenia, El Salvador, Iran, India, Afghanistan, Russia, Serbia, Cambodia, and one still in Iraq, as they reinvent their lives. The piece runs 65 minutes and includes music and some dance sequences as well as narrative. Written and performed by Stephanie Satie.
