On September 23rd, Remote Theater Project welcomed Little Amal in the Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn. After 10 days of traveling in this hustling and bustling city, Amal found A Quiet Refuge where both the living and those who have passed can rest. How do we welcome a stranger? We invited kids from neighboring communities to share songs of welcome and friendship with Little Amal. Amal, we hope you liked it! Bye-bye, for now.
A Quiet Refuge took place at the Green-Wood Cemetery which is surrounded by many Brooklyn neighborhoods with a diverse population. Here, Little Amal was welcomed by choirs from the Bangladesh Institute of Performing Arts, Academia de Mariachi Nuevo Amanecer, and Brooklyn New School (PS 146). Groups of children from local communities sang songs from Bangladeshi, Mexican, and Native American cultures.
