Within the Quota

Within the Quota

The U.S. may be a nation of immigrants, but it is also a nation of quotas. Congress has repeatedly imposed laws controlling the influx of aliens. Written between 1922–23, Cole Porter’s ballet WITHIN THE QUOTA is a critique of the Emergency Quota Act (1921). TableTopOpera’s new arrangement juxtaposes images and film clips from Porter’s time with material pertaining to current U.S. immigration policies and their effects on the nation. The project is a collaboration between TableTopOpera and the George Eastman Museum.
