Eastern Connecticut State University — The ever-relevant topic of immigration was on display from Oct. 11-15, when Eastern Connecticut State University premiered Thread City, a performance that "told" stories of the immigrants who came to Willimantic to work in its historic thread mills. The dialogue-free play blended choreographed movement, visual projections and folky-electronic soundscapes to convey a heartfelt and historically representative tale of immigration in America. Among the students involved was Erin Wallace, class of 2021, who acted in the ensemble. Wallace majors in Theatre and History.
