Cruzando Ensueños
Musical Performance

Sun, Apr 14, 2024
2–3:30 pm

Floor 3, Theater, and Online, via Zoom

A musical performance and a ritual offering to the migrants who strayed on their way to the United States, Cruzando Ensueños reflects the difficult undocumented journey of families, women, and children. The play is performed by actress and singer Georgina Saldaña and directed by playwright Liliana Alberto, both Mexican and migrant artists. Inspired by the farewell rituals for the dead in Oaxaca, Mexico, the 45-minute performance features a repertoire of six songs, one of which is in the indigenous Zapotec language, to explore the celebration and mourning of life.

This event will include a special artist talk with the actresses after the performance.  

Cruzando Ensuenos is a performance created by Espejo Escenico, a group of woman artists from Oaxaca. The Whitney Museum of American Art and Espejo Escenico presents this collaborative performance in celebration of Immigrant Heritage Week, commemorating April 17, 1907, the day in New York City history when the largest number of immigrants—11,000—entered the U.S. through Ellis Island.

This performance is primarily Spanish-language. English closed captioning is available. 

The Susan and John Hess Family Theater is equipped with an induction loop and infrared assistive listening system. Accessible seating is available.
