In 1821, forty years before Lincoln ended slavery, and fifty years before African Americans earned the right to vote, the first black theatrical group in the country , the African Company of New York, staged plays in a downtown Manhattan theatre for both black and white audiences. Their competition is an uptown Broadway impresario who is producing Richard III at the same time as the African Company and wants them shut down. A historical event that continues to resonate today.

Arrival. Distant, treacherous, elusive - what would you endure in order to arrive at your destination? What if you never made it? When at Last We Arrived performs the movements between departure and arrival: the journeys undertaken by refugees all over the world as they uproot from their homes in search of a new life. In this immersive performance installation, video projections, dance and song evoke the essence of what it means to risk everything in order to arrive.
Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber • Lyrics by Tim Rice
