Supported by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage, Supper, People on the Move is a large-scale performance by choreographer Silvana Cardell, inspired and informed by the immigration process and premiering in June 2015. “Living in a cultural crossroads, both mentally and physically, my work resides in the overlap between places, cultures, and artistic forms,” says Cardell, a native of Argentina, now a United States citizen.

Performances at the Icebox Project Space at Crane Arts in Philadelphia will be followed by a free public screening of the performance at Independence National Historical Park. Follow along by reading portraits of “people on the move,” as the project progresses.

All performances begin at 8 p.m.
