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.

The Museum is pleased to welcome students from local colleges and universities to discuss their current research relating to the Holocaust. Topics will vary but are inspired by oral history testimonies of Maryland’s Holocaust survivors. Presentations often mark the first opportunities that students have to publicly share their work while also inviting audience discourse and feedback.


Following the presentations join us for light refreshments and the opportunity to speak with the presenting students.
