SONGS ABOUT TRAINS at ICE FACTORY 2019

Songs About Trains explores the multiethnic history of the laborers who built the US Rail system. Taking on the thorny realities of immigration, labor, Manifest Destiny and the pillaging of Native American Land, a multiracial cohort of artists collaboratively create a performance that questions the complexity of progress and celebrates the victories of the multi-cultural, multilingual workforce that made our country what it is today.
