Far From Home, a modern dance work portraying immigration
May 10 @ 7:30 pm$25
As a COMMUNITY SPONSOR, you can get discounted tickets and VIP status (payment required May 8)
Far From Home, by Wichita-based choreographer Regina Klenjoski, explores the urgent, nationally relevant topic of immigration through a personal lens and weaves poetry, movement, film and an original score into powerfully emotive dance theatre. Klenjoski’s parents immigrated from Macedonia when Regina was a baby, and she honors their courage and sacrifice in her first full-evening work since her 20-year-old company moved from Los Angeles to Wichita four years ago.
The world premiere performances of Far From Home are at 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 10, and Saturday, May 11, 2019, at Wichita Center for Performing Arts, 9112 E Central Ave, Wichita, Kansas 67206. Each evening opens with a 10-minute documentary of Wichita residents sharing their immigrant experiences in poetry and movement through RKDC’s free community workshops held in February.
