Exploring struggles of immigration, roots, and memory, the Latina artist from Argentina, Anabella Lenzu, explores the struggles and successes of generations of US immigrants Against the backdrop of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, Lenzu and her dancers bring the immigrant story to life by reliving the time that passed through Ellis Island at the turn of the 20th century.
