Little Amal has been traveling the globe since July 2021, stopping by 15 countries and meeting over a million people. After touring NYC in 2022, the puppet will now be making a 6,000-mile-long journey through the United States. Amal will be in Detroit through Wednesday, September 27, before she makes her way to Chicago, IL, and her journey will come to a close on November 5, in San Diego, CA.
The Walk Productions, producers behind Little Amal, expressed the goal behind such a sizable tour:
“The story of the United States has been shaped by a complex history of migration and movement that touches every corner of the globe. But the myriad challenges of today’s interconnected world are forcing many to revisit America’s status as the land of opportunity.
Our hope for Amal is that she can spur conversations in communities across the country around the important role of refugees and newcomers in writing the ongoing story of the United States.” – The Walk Productions Artistic Director Amir Nizar Zuabi
