Lunchbox Series: The Against the Railing Immigration Project with Tara Mullins

March 31, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 11:45 am

Tara Mullins first choreographed Against the Railing in 2007. At the time, it was about her grandmother’s journey from Sicily to New York in the early 1900s. Her grandmother left behind her parents and worked on the factory lines to make a better life for her children. With the current conversations about immigration, Mullins decided to expand the piece to include more sections, as well as filmed immigration stories from NC State faculty, staff and students. The inspiration for these videos came from Minnesota’s Immigrant Stories. These interviews became a stand alone project. In this discussion you will watch some of the interviews and Mullins will discuss the process, and her hopes for the future of the project.
