Where is home is a community-engaged multi-year dance project exploring immigration. It will include: performances, workshops, community meals, interviews and an Instagram account documenting the diverse and vast immigrant experience.  


First Chapter - birds of passage

When it comes to immigration, as an Italian-American immigrant artist I have felt increasing intolerance, fear, and discomfort growing within our communities. I am keen to create work that builds empathy and safety for America’s immigrants, including myself.

Through storytelling and movement, I will investigate the structural racism being perpetuated by the use of stereotypes.

I will be looking into my personal experience as an Italian American immigrant and reflecting and researching the immense history of Italian American Immigration in this country.
