Inspired by a real program that reunites families separated by immigration policies at the U.S. - Mexico Border, but only for three minutes, Tres minutos imagines the story of Diego and Nila, a brother and sister who share DNA but not citizenship. When Diego is deported, leaving Nila behind, questions of identity, duty, and belonging threaten to consume them.
Tres minutos was commissioned by Music of Remembrance (Mina Miller, founder and artistic director) and made possible by a generous award from the Clovis Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts.
FIRST PERFORMANCES: May 15, 2022 at the Illsley Ball Nordstrom Recital Hall at Benaroya Hall, Seattle, WA, and May 22, 2022 at the Presidio Theatre, San Francisco, CA.
