INCLUDES A POST-SHOW Q&A

Poet Laureate of Iowa, Mary Swander, Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer, Dennis Chamberlin, and Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival award winner, Matt Foss, collaborated to create a drama called Vang (meaning “garden” or “farm” in Hmong). This program documents recent Iowa immigrant farmers, winding their words together to form a verbatim play that captures the immigrants’ journeys to the United States. Hmong, Mexican, Sudanese, and Dutch immigrants all speak of their struggles, survival skills, and their intense desire to return to the land. Stunning photos and theatrical brilliance bring this production to life on stage. Michael Ching, past executive director of the Memphis opera, composed music to underscore the play’s impactful message.

“For any sensitive soul, it is not possible to be a witness to this play and not be changed by it; not be moved by the gut-wrenching experiences of these individuals.”

~Dr. Judith A. Conlin, Exec. Director, Iowa International Center
