KIM CROSS is an award winning journalist and author of What Stands in a Storm: Three Days in the Worst Superstorm to Hit the South’s Tornado Valley, a gripping account of the climax of a deadly superstorm that saw a record 349 tornadoes rip through twenty-one states in three days, seven hours, and eighteen minutes. Blending both the journalistic and dramatic, the book is based on more than a year of meticulous research and forensic reporting to recreate cinematic scenes with gripping detail, as well as the added profundity of a redemptive message that’s just as real as the storm.
BRIAN QUIJADA is an actor, playwright, musician. Brian was born in the Greater Chicagoland Area to Salvadoran parents. Quijada is a two-time Jeff Award winner in Chicago and a two-time Drama Desk Nominee in NYC. He is a proud member of The Ensemble Studio Theatre in New York City. Brian’s writing in new theatre focuses on immigration, the human condition, identity, and the American experience while incorporating elements of his Latinx upbringing.

We are a physical art company creating original work that is kinetic, participatory and heartfelt. Migration theory will be reading from material past and potentially future.
