To bring awareness to the global crisis of migration and refugees, a theater project is using a different kind of stage. They built a giant puppet of a young Syrian girl to stand in for millions and silently speak on their behalf. She has come to the U.S. amid an annual gathering of the world’s leaders at the United Nations. Jeffrey Brown has the story for our arts and culture series, "CANVAS."
