What does it mean to rebuild, redistribute and ultimately grow amid civil & societal unrest?
Something that you believe to be concrete is now being churned and resown. Concrete is laid to restrict overgrowth and make it easier for us to move, which ultimately creates a barrier between us and the land. But plants will always slip through the cracks despite a surface designed to oppress and repel them. Through voice, movement and color we will allow our bodies to cascade, take root and then rise again from the pavement, part of Pangea World Theater’s Another World Is Possible Series.
The performance will be live, raw, in the moment responses to the various forms of art being expressed. Poetry and song will inform the movement of the dancers, as they paint their bodies with pigment powders, which will inform the chalk drawings on the street.
We will take the necessary precautions to ensure this event is covid-conscious. Masks are required. This event will be outside.
