We Are Not The Others: An Evening of Performance
We are not the others. We are just like you.
“Immigration has been part of the history of humanity. We need to embrace it rather than fear it.” - Dr. Mirna Carranza, McMaster University
Toronto based actor/playwright and Hamilton Fringe Favourite, Izad Etemadi, has been working with students from McMaster’s School of Social Work and members of the Hamilton Immigrant community to create this performance piece. There is a need to put faces to the stories we read on reports and journals. To bring knowledge to the community - where it matters the most. Using poetry, music, and the real words of immigrant women we bring you into this world full of struggles, pain, tears and hope.
Featuring: Julianna Diller, Maricel Perez V, Heath. V Salazar, Elisabeth Sayes, Vinay Yuvashankar
“Being an immigrant is to give the best of oneself to a new homeland!” - Ines Rios, Immigrant Working Centre
