|As immigration policy is hotly debated around the country in terms of national and cultural security, Crossing the BLVD: strangers, neighbors, aliens in a new America presents the very human stories of why immigrants and refugees have migrated to the US and what their experiences have been since they came here pre- and post-9/11.
Based on Warren Lehrer and Judith Sloan’s critically acclaimed book, actor/writer/documentary artist Judith Sloan “channels” many of the people that the couple interviewed on their three-year journey around the world through the borough of Queens. The performance is illuminated by projections of Lehrer’s photographs along with an original soundtrack of music, sounds and voices, including Sloan’s audio mixes, music by Scott Johnson and Gogol Bordello.
