Felice Lesser Dance Theater presents "TRAP IST"
Felice Lesser Dance Theater
Felice Lesser’s new dance/drama/video/interactive technology work, Trap Ist will premiere on December 1st at New York Live Arts in the Felice Lesser Dance Theater’s first season in New York City since 2017. This science fiction fantasy takes the audience on a journey in which we confront ageism, racism, the destruction of the environment, unwelcome immigrants, and what could happen if we don’t control our A.I. now.
Trap Ist takes place in the near future after a nuclear holocaust has destroyed earth, and an egomaniacal A.I. has enslaved and transported a group of dancers (and the audience) to the seemingly uninhabited Trappist 1-e, a planet capable of sustaining human life. A fight for freedom ensues, in which the humans are aided by the planet’s vastly superior life forms -- beings who are passionate about dance but have relinquished their bodies for a purely spiritual existence. The common enemy, A.I., must be defeated both for the environmental integrity of their planet, and for the survival of these last remnants of human civilization. But once the humans have danced their way to victory in the conflict, the planet's life form will not allow them to stay.
