The Perilous Journey of María Rosa Palacios and The Railroad Workers is a multi-media project bringing together performance, film, and visual art to draw parallels between a teenage girl's journey through the mountains of Ecuador and the indigenous and Jamaican workers who constructed the most dangerous stretch of railway in the world. The work investigates issues of race, class, and gender through intersections of labor and migration.
