new immortal Movement Workshop & Performance

  • Workshop & Performance 4:30 & 6:30pm Sat/2:30 & 4:30pm Sun

  • new immortal, a multimedia work by Liana Zhen-ai and Jordan Rapaport, imagines a world in which archaeologists of the future dig up evidence of our impact on the planet. With the discovery of discarded single-use plastics, antiquated technology, and skeletons of disappearing species come memories, the faint evidence of the ways these lost objects touched us as much as we touched them. Through movement, sound, storytelling and projection, we speak to plastic bags, cradle the hole in the ozone, and confront the collective grief of the Anthropocene era. In this temporally warped, melting history, who speaks? When we re-write the story of the planet, who lives to tell the tale? Can the dissolution of narrative allow new voices to enter the scene, and history to be written by new victors?

  • Tickets $10-35, with options for just workshop or performance
