Created by multidisciplinary Venezuelan artist Migguel Anggelo, English with an Accent is a new, hybrid work of dance and theater, narrated in a storytelling song-cycle for which we are looking to cast a company of dancers composed of immigrants and people of the immigrant experience. The story is a semi-autobiographical fable exploring the intersections of Immigrant, Latino and Queer identities, as well as the role of the artist in contemporary society.
