WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The City is an immersive performance experience following two New Yorkers through a day that will change the course of their lives. The performance features realistic and abstract scenes as well as interactive audience engagement to explore how New Yorkers connect and disconnect in the city. Enhanced by film, dance, original music, poetry, beat-box, photography, and shadow/light design, the audience will explore the ways humans impact each other or fail to do so. The performance investigates three primary themes: 1) social and relational dynamics, 2) technology trends that hinder and enhance connectivity and 3) the innate human longing for belonging.
