A Cross Border Exploration of Art and Human Liberation

Be part of an interactive discussion with inspiring Latinx storyteller Jessica Carmona and her creative team: playwright Diane Currie Sam and composer Gil Yaron. Explore how we can “Welcome the Stranger” with theatre, music and storytelling. Enjoy an excerpt from “Olivia O, The Musical”, a theatrical piece that explores the impact of family separation policies at the US border through the eyes of a young Guatemalan girl, Olivia Oritiz, and her American aunt (who is waking up to the realities of the harsh U.S. immigration system).

Jessica Carmona is a NYC based Actress, Playwright, Librettist and Lyricist. She is currently a member of the BMI Lehman Engel Musical Theater Workshop. She is also an Educator and Immigrant Rights Advocate. She is dedicated to using her art to further the cause for social justice and human rights for all. She is so thankful to be collaborating with Diane and Gil on this musical.
