Book and Lyrics by Erlina Ortiz
Music and Lyrics by Robi Hager
inspired by the life and Earth/Body work of artist Ana Mendieta
Dinora, a Cuban-American immigrant, and Khalilah, a Syrian refugee, move in together amidst a charged 2016 presidential campaign, the lifting of the Cuban embargo, and the escalation of the Syrian Civil War. Through their growing, and sometimes tumultuous friendship, they learn about forgiveness, radical love, and the true meaning of home.
