    This is the true story of one street performer's journey through the streets of Nigeria, Ireland, Hong Kong, New Zealand, and back to Portland, told through the words of the people living on those streets. Armed with only a violin and a guitar to soothe the world's displaced, and ultimately herself, she asks the question: "How do you navigate a world in which you must close your eyes in order to stay sane?" In the end, she discovers the silent voices of Latina mothers behind the locked doors of ICE buildings, in the form of handwritten letters brought to life on the stage. Several Portland area homeless support organizations will be present at the event to guide compassionate audience members into action.

    Some material not suitable for younger audiences.
