Explore the experimental theater scene of New York City at City of No Illusions, a performative commentary on immigration staged by Talking Band, one of the most significant, politically-minded companies in the city!

Synopsis: A funeral home near the New York/Canadian border becomes a refuge for two asylum seekers. The funeral directors are two sisters whose lives become intimately, farcically, and, at times, dangerous entwined with the refugees. The funeral home is a portal between the living and the dead, and the border at the edge of our country is a potential gateway to a new life. A mysterious group of musicians show up- a shadow band that occupies a permeable space between the borderlands.
