No Place Called Home
…This wasn’t supposed to be a love story

A New Play with Music

Written and Performed By Kim Schultz
Directed by Sarah Cameron Sunde
With Live Music by Amikaeyla Gaston

Lebanon, Jordan, Syria, refugee, refugee…oh my—
Omar.

Traveling to the Middle East to interview Iraqi refugees and hear their
stories, Kim accidentally falls in love with one of them. This is that
unexpected story–a story of an American woman and an Iraqi man, a story
about one refugee and4 million, a story that wasn’t supposed to be a love
story.

Recognizing that art has the power to evoke compassion, build understanding and initiate the human transformation necessary to motivate social action, in October 2009 Intersections led a delegation of 8 American artists on a 3-week immersion. While on the trip, the delegation entered into conversations with hundreds of  refugees at community centers and in their homes. Upon their return, the artists began creating a series of artistic pieces designed to humanize the crisis and give voice to the millions of refugees whose plight has yet to enter broad public consciousness. No Place Called Home is one such piece.
