The Global Theatre Project in partnership with the Immigration Outreach Service Center of Baltimore and the Jewish Museum of Maryland presents An Explorer’s Desire – theater, self-reflection and dialogue about the immigration and refugee crisis.

 

There are more than 65 million refugees and displaced people on our planet fleeing war, poverty and other threats to their safety, survival, and quality of life. Some of them are here in Baltimore. During this year’s Light City Festival, inspired by the communal and introspective steps of the Passover Seder, we’ll take a moment to reflect, through theater, on our own family’s journey. Our goal is to shine a light of considered and empathetic conversation about immigrants in our local community, the nation, and the world.

 

Please be aware this event will take place in the Lloyd Street Synagogue.

 

“For it does not matter where you stem from,

or matter it not where you stem too.

The heart of the matter is we are all one

in a democracy of exploration.”

– An Explorer’s Desire

 

Following the performance please join us for our Walk of Remembrance and Refuge.

Documentary

USA/Poland/ Israel, 2016

Director: Michal Jaskulski

English/Polish with subtitles, 90 min.

 
Bogdan Bialek, a Catholic Pole, launches a crusade to persuade the people of Kielce, Poland, to confront the truth about the darkest moment in their past: Kielce was the site of Europe’s last Jewish pogrom. In the face of long-held animosity in the hearts of his fellow citizens, Bialek, a psychologist, uses education and community organizing to debunk conspiracy theories and cut through the unending debate about how and why it happened. His persistence, commitment, and passion transform Kielce into a place of dialogue and reconciliation.

 

Special Guest: Anna Sommer Schneider, Georgetown University

 

Presented in partnership with the Jewish Museum of Maryland.
