Come experience theater that tells the story of the human journey. This is a theatrical adventure fusing family lore, cultural mythology and scientific revelations about human migration and genealogy.

Members of the cast participated in a DNA test with the Genographic Project, tracing their ancestral histories back over 50,000 years.

Our director facilitated a two month development process, working with writers and actors to explore facts, fantasies, dreams and possibilities about their ancestral heritage. The stories that emerged from these workshops, and later the results of DNA tests and our collective conversations about them, highlight HOW WE ARE CONNECTED.

All performances FREE TO THE PUBLIC. We highly recommend registering early to secure your seat. To register, click HOW WE ARE CONNECTED – The Caribbean
