DanceAction and The Center at West Park present Welcome to imagi*Nation: Part 2,
an interactive multimedia performance. The story told in this dance-centered piece starts with a border conflict between two neighboring nations that traps a group of migrants in limbo. Their fate will be decided by the audiences whose decisions will influence the outcome of the events transpiring on stage. The production – co-directed by choreographer Carmen Caceres
and dramaturg Lauren Hlubny
– is the second part of a planned trilogy dealing with traditional, nation-based communities in the face of pressing global problems affecting the whole of humanity. In this installment, the central issue is the relationship between industry, economy, and migration.
Performed by Carmen Caceres, Israel Harris, Lauren Hlubny, Mallory Markham-Miller, Sofia Baeta, and Sofia Bengoa and features lighting design by Nicole Sliwinski, video by Juan David Castilla, music by Emilio Teubal and Various Artists, and costume design by Caceres and Hlubny.
Admission to this event (funded by NYFA/City Artist Corps Grant) is free but RSVP is required.
