Based on the experiences of the five performers joining the video call from Buenos Aires, Caracas, Madrid, Paris and Santiago de Chile, “Las Travesías (The Crossings)” explores the phenomenon of the most recent Venezuelan migration. They follow the threads of migration in their own family histories and look at the political scenarios that lead to emigration, at the experience of being different once they reach their destination and at struggles with bureaucracy from various perspectives. After countless relocations and constant change, the question remains whether the digital sphere might become another place of refuge.
