WORLD PREMIERE with support from the MAP Fund
Life-forms flicker in and out in the circuitous streets and despair-laden corners of the Broken City. Who were the folks who danced all night at the Global Feminist Funk Underground Club, now haunted and empty? Who were the people who lived their lives fully here before they disappeared? How did they labor? Love?
The artists of Ananya Dance Theatre unravel time and unwritten histories in Sutrajāl as a poet, one of the few surviving humans in this place, bears witness.
Imagined and choreographed by Ananya Chatterjea in collaboration with the artists of ADT, and the support of guest artists Tish Jones and Douglas Ewart, guest dramaturg Sharon Bridgforth, and Stage Director Marcus Young.
Sound design and score composition by Renée Copeland. Lighting design by Kevin A. Jones. Costume design by Annie Cady. Scenery design by Chelsea Warren.
