Spark Movement Collective

Dance company Spark Movement Collective is updating another classic for today’s times with 1984, a debut production based on the novel by George Orwell. Spark dancers bring this dystopian novel to life through movement choreographed by Artistic Director Chelsea Koenig and Assistant Artistic Director Matt Dittes in collaboration with the dancers. Featuring a transporting original score by composer Justin Reardon, 1984 explores the nature of truth and forbidden love in a world of fear. Custom projections enhance the world-building as protagonist Winston battles the psychological manipulation and physical threats of a totalitarian regime. Audiences will encounter a world of ideas as chilling as they are timely, urging us to question our relationship to language, power and control.

1984 will be performed at the Secret Theatre in Long Island City, premiering on Thursday, November 8 at 8:00pm and running through Saturday, November 10. Tickets may be purchased in advance for $20 at sparkmovementcollective.org. Remaining tickets, if any, will be available the day of each performance, 30 minutes prior to showtime, for $25.
