AMAN dances into The Alex Theatre

GLENDALE -- In its West Coast premiere, “The Immigrants” will be

performed by the 35-year-old AMAN Folk Ensemble at The Alex Theatre this


“The Immigrants” is a celebration of the immigrant experience and


demonstrates how people from all over the world have brought their

traditions here. The piece looks at what happens when those traditions

bump up against each other and new traditions are created.

A professional actor, playing the role of a philosophical street


musician, weaves the context for the highly diverse segments, around the

theme of E Pluribus Unum, or Out of Many One.

“The Immigrants” is a fast-paced, contemporary collection of music and

dance interspersed with the voices of AMAN’s own performers articulating

the importance of honoring traditional cultures.

The show is at 8 p.m. Friday and 2 p.m. Sunday. The Alex is at 216

N. Brand Blvd., Glendale. Tickets are $15 to $35 and are on sale at the

box office or through Tele-charge 24 hours a day at 1 (800) 233-3123.
