Bryn Mawr College presents Stories of Refuge at Twelve Gates Arts, part of a survey of immersive work featured in ear-whispered: works by Tania El Khoury. The video installation invites audiences to lay down on metal bunk beds and watch videos shot by Syrian asylum seekers in Munich, Germany.

Additional works included in ear-whispered: works by Tania El Khoury are: the internationally acclaimed sound installation Gardens Speak, the one-on-one performance As Far As My Fingertips Take Me, another immersive video installation, Camp Pause, and a world premiere commissioned by Bryn Mawr College, Tell Me What I Can Do.
