FITO

LAB Commission / World Premiere

After 30 years in the United States, it is the day of Fito’s naturalization ceremony.  As he raises his hand for the Oath of Allegiance, he is transported to a composition of musical snapshots that make up his tapestry in this country.  Some jaded, some moot, some filled with bodies of water, some disheartening—but none ever debilitating enough to keep him from chasing his dream to be the first American citizen in his family. FITO is an interactive concert-play incorporating songs, stories, and spoken word poems that meld to paint a soundscape of what it can take to be accepted in your own home, by your own people—or yourself.
This program is a part of the 2019 Live Arts Bard Biennial: Where No Wall Remains.
