Alborati got visas for his and his wife's three sons last fall, while the travel ban was temporarily blocked by a court.With the visa denial, Alborati went back to New York to provide for the children.However much consideration was given, families and others separated by the ban are struggling, in places near and far.Jafari remembered how the initial ban, which for a time barred even people with prior permission to come to the U.S., came suddenly while he was in Iran for winter break in January 2017 and almost derailed his return for his final semester at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.On stage, only two dancers performed the piece in its U.S. premiere on a January night.The Contemporary Arts Center in Cincinnati and New York-based immigration lawyer Matthew Covey were scrambling to seek a travel ban waiver for Syrian choreographer Mithkal al-Zghair and two fellow dancers to perform his "Displacement".The ban allows for case-by-case waivers, and they have been relatively scarce.
