Storytelling through dance.
Two European girls dream of fame. They are determined to make it and move to NYC. Emigration and immigration come with their ups and downs though. Through unexpected challenges, surprising encounters, moments of doubt and moments of awe, “Carla” (Hanna Herbertson) & “Chicha” (Cindy Claes) forged a strong friendship the very first day they moved to the Big Apple…
** MI A GO FOREIGN! is a Work In Progress by Cindy Claes & Hanna Herbertson. The sit(dance)com is not a finished product. Hopefully both artists will be able to secure additional funding and support in the near future to take the project to the next level.
