The Walk with Little Amal & Co- Laboratory - Chicanx Teatro Ensemble, Dance, Design & UCSD Center for Global Justice

This is a site specific community engagement project that will intersect with the giant puppet Little Amal, which is the centrepiece of a global performance art project called The Walk. Amal’s journey as a simulated refugee girl who crosses international borders (U.S. into Mexico) is the starting point for the Co-Laboratory to bring awareness to current critical issues of environmental justice, war, socio-political issues, and their resulting impact on migration, immigration, and refugees, culminating in a collectively created performance event. The creative process will be led by Robert Castro (Chicanx Teatro Ensemble), Ana María Alvarez (Dance) and Victoria Petrovich (Design).
