Inspired by real stories from Syrian migrants and folklore, Amanah is an original tale of immigration and cultural displacement. Created by drama and music students ages 15 to 18 and inspired by stories and first-hand accounts of the Syrian refugee crisis, Amanah tells the story of a family’s arduous journey from war-torn homeland to the intimidating sanctuary of an adopted country. Intermingling fantasy, fairy-tale and fact, the play serves as testament to humanity’s need for acceptance, community, and dutiful reverence of legacy.

Curator's Note

"Amanah is an imaginative and thoughtful production that highlights the strength of ensemble creation. Drawing on fairytale, song, personal experience and pop culture this production delves into the struggles and politics of immigration, while digging deep into its impact on personal lives and relationships." - Laura Nanni
