My Home is a Suitcase is a Research-based Theatre performance created in collaboration with newcomers to Canada telling their stories of immigration. Theatre artist Rzgar Hama, in partnership with UBC Research-Based Theatre Collaborative and Sky Theatre Group, launched the My Home is a Suitcase project in light of the global refugee crisis. A group of newcomers are working with professional theatre artists (Rzgar Hama, Hila Graf, and Lennora Esi) to turn their autobiographical stories of immigration into a live theatrical performance. The stories will be performed by community members with lived experience of immigration, working alongside theatre artists and members of the UBC Research-Based Theatre Collaborative.
