Theatre Lumina presents its newest devised work, Song of Home, a series of movement etudes confronting America’s complicated relationship with global displacement. Experienced by way of three displaced women coming to the United States, SONG OF HOME is a theatrical meditation on the rich dynamic between a country’s identity and its accountability to the displaced. Song of Home toured to Eastern Europe in February of 2020, and made its world premiere at the National Theatre Mihai Emenescu in Chisinau, Moldova.

Produced by Theatre Lumina

Supported by: The Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE), Newcomb Institute, Tulane University, and the Carol Lavin Bernick Family Foundation.

Theatre Lumina is a group of artists devoted to cross-cultural collaboration and international exchange, founded by Monica Payne in 2014. Through the selection of diverse artists, subject matter, scripts, and influences, we seek to deepen our audiences’ perspective and care for the world in which we live. We generate film and theatre that center ritual, the body, and theatricality itself. As citizens of the world, we embrace the power and potential of our shared humanity.


“Each human being carries within her/him all the continents, but each of us knows only one of them. So when a person with one known continent and a mass of dark continents meets someone else whose condition is the same, and they communicate, there is illumination for each.” – PeterBrook
