“Birds Sing Differently Here” was the first theater project of IARP’s “Iraqi Voices Program”, a collaborative art lab that gives Iraqi immigrants and refugees in Minnesota an artistic platform to share their stories. Based on the true stories of 12 local Iraqi-Minnesotan refugees and immigrants, the play and its powerful narratives of home, loss, and new opportunity, was performed to sold-out audiences at Dreamland Arts and the Guthrie Theater in 2017.
Due to popular demand, we will be bringing the play to four new locations in Minnesota in summer 2019. Our St. Cloud production will be the second stop on the tour!
