MIGRATION NATION: Imported and Exploited.
MIGRATION NATION: IMPORTED AND EXPLOITED, is a site-specific piece that will take place October 26th and 27th at Space on White in New York City. Members of Leviathan Lab's Women Writers Group will feature new works that explore the experiences of immigrant Filipinos who have taken jobs as overseas workers (OFW's) in the service and technical industries worldwide.  Educated Filipinos, the majority of them women, constitute the Philippines largest export, totaling 11% of the Philippine economy. These women, without the benefit of citizenship or workers' rights, suffer any number of human rights abuses. MIGRATION NATION seeks to explore the experiences of these workers. You see OFW's everyday and may not know it. They are your nurses, maids, technicians, waiters, and teachers. These are their stories.

The playwrights of MIGRATION NATION include Nancy Eng, Christine Toy Johnson, Dorim Lee, Karen Lee, Marisa Marquez, May Nazareno, Kristine M. Reyes, Eileen Rivera and Nandita Shenoy. Directors for the pieces are Tea Alagic, Jo Cattell, Elyzabeth Gorman Larissa Lury and Kira Onodera. The cast includes Maria Alegre, Leanne Cabrera, Kitty Chen, Patricia Cancio, Claro de los Reyes, Ariel Estrada, Karen Tsen Lee, Jaygee Macapugay, Jake Myers, Mizuo Peck, Diane Phelan, Krystal Seli, Kurt Uy and Yan Xi.

MIGRATION NATION is currently in the midst of their 40 DAYS TO $4000 campaign. We ask you to help share these important stories with our community, and ask you to give what you can; your tax-deductible donation will go toward sets, costumes, performer and technician stipends, and more.  MIGRATION NATION is funded, in part, by generous support from the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. Yet even with their funding, this ambitious live performance work is in need of your support. To make a contribution, go to: http://bit.ly/PEAKZR

MIGRATION NATION is made possible by a grant from the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. Community partners for this project are FAHNS, NAFAA and UniPro.

PERFORMANCE DATES: October 26th and 27th. 7pm and 9pm. Tickets are $15 each. Pre-show talk at 6:15pm both nights. Space on White, 81 White St. New York 212.227.8600
