Human Stages presents “Any Place But Here” a brand new collaboration between Amie Cota and No)one. Art House. This piece explores the themes of home and identity as reflected through the Great Migration, a 60-year span during which nearly 6 million African-Americans moved from the South to cities in the North and West.
Amie Cota and Christopher Bordenave of No)one. Art House portray the story young of a African-American man migrating out of the South and heading toward an unnamed urban center. The songs and movement tell of his hope as guiding force, his drive toward dignity, and his search for the elusive feeling of belonging in a divided country.
This work is not intended as a history lesson. Rather, history becomes a lens through which we can view our current relationship to race and inequity in American cities. Current patterns of urban gentrification and displacement are informed by the massive demographic shift that was the Great Migration. When we know our past, we are better prepared for our present, for our future.
