The Migration Project (Push/ Pull) Jane Franklin Dance
« on: September 15, 2016, 11:02:05 AM »

The Migration Project explores human flight through stories of relocation. Whether a
family history dating back from multiple generations, or a recent relocation, something is
shared through the ‘pull’ to find better opportunity or the ‘push’ to leave because of no
choice. The extraordinary increase in global migration over the past 500 years has left
traces in our DNA.
An immersive visual experience evolves as Jane Franklin Dance and voices from within the
community share family histories and interact with the space and with the art. The large
scale installation occupies the floor and walls; is contained by the physical boundaries yet
comes alive in the space.
Similar to a visual art gallery, audiences will 'move through' and participate from various
viewpoints rather than one stationary location. The performances progress in tandem
with the length of time the installation remains in place.

Rosemary Feit Covey’s art installation, originally shown as The 0 Project, is a large-scale
sculptural piece meant to give voice to the underrepresented and traditionally ignored.
Printed on Dupont Tyvek banner media, it is installed at Theatre on the Run wrapping the
interior from floor to ceiling. Hand-held masks echo the countless faces that create the
texture of the banners.

Dawn Whitmore adds brief video statements and sound installations drawn from words
and phrases provided by individuals who have told their stories. On Opening Night,
November 4 @ 7:30 pm and Closing Night, November 19 @ 7:30 pm, the audience treks to
the nearby New District Brewing Company to conclude the performance in a new setting.
