NYU Steinhardt Presents Finding Home: Our Stories

A new show titled “Finding Home: Our Stories” was performed at the Provincetown playhouse last week.Inspired by a New York times article by Miriam Jordan discussing the decision to stop identifying america as a “nation of immigrants”, the show explores what it means to be an immigrant in both past and present contexts through personal storytelling, songs, movement, and more.One Chinese student, Dongyang Fei, discovered that during the extreme famine in China, resulting from the Japanese invasion in the 40s, his grandfather spent a year walking barefoot looking for food, eating tree bark in order to survive. This experience is portrayed by Fei who plays both his grandfather and himself.
