WASHINGTON, DC: Orange Grove Dance at Dance Place
Orange Grove Dance
Inspired by the invisible radio wars between the United States and Cuba since 1959 and mythopoetic research into personal dreams and stories of one family’s migration from Cuba during the Mariel Boatlift of 1980, Children of Babel takes its audience and performers into a vivid sand filled landscape where the voices of a country pulled apart echo 90 miles in all directions. The performer activated lighting design by Peter Leibold and heart wrenching soundscore by Dylan Glatthorn casts the performers into a sparse ever expanding and contracting environment of pressure, brokenness, and hope. Dynamic partnering and bombastic personal movement vocabularies speak to the fragility of what we hold on to and what is left behind from one place to another.
