Migration Patterns During Wartime
This video/ performance tryptic is composed of three parts: "Creation Myth", "Migration Patterns During Wartime" and "Exodus". In the first part of this series a deity creates a nomadic community composed of people that morph into animal hybrids. In "Migration Patterns..." these creatures travel 90 miles from San Antonio to Austin, some hitchhiking, others using public busses, to find others like them and seek pilgrimage at the state's capitol building trying to impact laws on immigration.
The final segment, Exodus, follows the creatures after they have been exiled in the desert that straddles the US/ Mexico border. In this chapter the creatures struggle to understand how to build a community and construct a home. (2012)
