“Coming to America: Transformations” is a portrait gallery of women whose lives have been transformed, first by extraordinary events in their country of birth, and then by their response to America. Refugees, immigrants, both legal and clandestine, they keep coming to America. Driven by war, genocide, repressive societies, they carve out new lives among us. But who are they? What does the “promised land” hold for them? Can it fulfill those promises? “Coming to America: Transformations” visits nine extraordinary women from Armenia, El Salvador, Iran, India, Afghanistan, Russia, Serbia, Cambodia, and one still in Iraq, as they reinvent their lives. In addition to narrative, the piece includes music and some dance sequences.
