An International Co-Production with Montreal’s Dynamo Theatre and Portugal’s Teatro O Bando.
A Montreal actor puts himself in the shoes of a Portuguese immigrant, Antonio. Through movement, words and music he retells parts of Antonio’s life. Interspersed with appointments at the immigration office where Antonio must show up to try and get his residency papers, this partly fictional account is based on fragments of real immigration stories.
Both sensitive and entertaining, Inner Migrant is an imaginative production that tells a story of tensions brought on by hopes for a better life and regrets about all that had to be left behind.
