This dark comedy, set in a modest Vancouver hotel, is about Chilean refugees who struggle with the various tragicomic effects of fleeing their homeland. Laid bare in the fictionalized autobiographical details of the play are universal truths that victims and survivors of political oppression continue to experience everywhere – and about love’s power to heal.

This original work by Mihai Măniuțiu was inspired by The Green Book, a travel guide for African American motorists, published annually between 1936 and 1966. Măniuțiu has used this historical work as inspiration for an original dance-theatre performance piece that explores exclusion and provides a survival guide for those who, given the odds stacked against them, “should not survive.”

1930s Berlin: a group of left-leaning friends struggle to understand the world around them as Hitler rises to power. While they claim to have lofty ideals, they do not actively resist. Meanwhile, these events are contrasted with a parallel presentation of events in America in the 1980s by a modern day activist who insists on taking action to fight repression and authoritarianism.
