THE NEW COLOSSUS director and co-writer, Tim Robbins, joins a panel to discuss the production, which launches its national tour in Charlotte, and how it connects to immigration and refugee communities around the nation. Local leaders from within those communities will join to discuss these issues as they relate to Charlotte specifically.


Panelists include:

  • Tim Robbins, director and co-writer of THE NEW COLOSSUS
  • Myloan Dinh, Charlotte-based multi-disciplinary artist
  • Sil Ganzó, Founder and Executive Director of ourBRIDGE for KIDS
  • Theresa Matheny, Fruitful Friends Program Director of Refugee Support Services


In THE NEW COLOSSUS, twelve actors from all over the world are telling their ancestors' stories, all woven into a single narrative about escaping an oppressive homeland, drawn to the beacon above Ellis Island. An intensely physical production, with live music, poetry and kinetic movement, THE NEW COLOSSUS is an homage to the strength, resilience and dignity of the immigrants and refugees that risked everything to find a better life. Director and co-writer Tim Robbins sets the piece in different eras between 1864 and the modern day, celebrating the courage and character of those who came to this country over the last 300 years.
