Their Own Voices: Stories of Migrant Women
The intersection of new music, the narratives of migrant women, and contemporary issues re-contextualized within electronic elements and live performance.
Their Own Voices: Stories of Migrant Women will focus on the experience of migrant women from diverse areas of the world who have resettled in the US and is proposed to be fifteen-twenty minutes in length. While the public face of many migrants, especially women, is portrayed in a monolithic way in the press, their experience is extremely varied. This work hopes to explore a nuanced interpretation of women’s struggles in their home countries, their decisions to flee and their experiences as migrants. She intends to combine recorded material from interviews with several migrant women, synthesized sound and live performance featuring soprano, mezzo-soprano and piano.
