“Over the course of Ms. Schultz's performance, the Iraqi refugee population of New York City increased virtually by something like 10%, as she brought stories of urban refugee life into the spare rehearsal room...Ms. Schultz transformed herself...”
The New York Times

"Under Sarah Cameron Sunde's perceptive direction, Schultz gains our sympathies for a people who many people automatically suspect are our enemies. That alone is no small achievement."
The Star Ledger

"How can one person summarize so much pain, pride trauma, love and suffering like an Iraqi refugee while she is, in fact, not an Iraqi refugee herself? As a refugee myself, I gave up to the fact, that no one can hold the complexity of the crisis, it's so complicated and different. Yet I was wrong. In this event, I was captured from the first word until the end. It was brilliant."
Ibrahim, Iraqi refugee

EXCERPTS of the play with CityDance

Prior to the NYC run, Intersections International asked Kim Schultz and IVAP artists Paul Emerson and Kathryn Pilkington of CityDance to perform excerpts of their individual pieces for a special gala evening. The artists uniquely blended their work together for this special evening. The dance is called "Wishes of the Sailor" and the text is from "No Place Called Home" performed as part of Intersections Internationals 2010 Awards Gala.
