Wayfaring Strangers

INSPIRATION

The nomadic journey of the Roma brings a fascinating blend of culture and history to wherever the trek leads. Enduring a centuries-long conflict with acceptance, this show attempts to share the beauty and ebb and flow of traditional Romani life — as the caravan enters, its people share their stories, and, finally, bids farewell and exits.
