“I can’t promise you the ride of your life”
Performance begins at 3pm at the pavilion near the southwest corner of Union Square Park.
Ten years ago I came to the United States in pursuit of freedom of self-expression, luggage full of passion. Ten years later, my passion has been burning out due to struggles with legal status in the US, visa applications and rejections, foreign policies, and Trump. Crawling back into the luggage that once carried all my dreams, I am rotted inside. What is left in me is helplessness and hopelessness.
