About

World premiere Kennedy Center co-commission

Inflatable rafts on the Mediterranean. Dark holds of cargo trucks. Family photos wrapped carefully in a backpack that crosses border checkpoints. Author and illustrator Christopher Myers and director Kaneza Schaal, along with New York–based company Arktype, explore how the world is alive with movement and migration.

Inspired by the artists’ creative work with young refugees from around the world, Cartography asks what part we play in the lives of youth who set out into the unsure waters of their future. From the effects of climate change to war and poverty, this powerful story examines the forces that shape where we have come from, how we have moved, and where we are going.

Most enjoyed by age 12 and up. All patrons, regardless of age, must have a ticket.

Stay after for a Creative Conversation 
Following the 1:30 p.m. performance on Jan. 12, young audience members can ask questions and hear stories in an up-close-and-personal talk with some of the artists.
