WELCOME TO IMAGI*NATION: The Trilogy
DanceAction / Carmen Caceres
How would our world look like if regular people could make the most critical policy choices?
In WELCOME TO IMAGI*NATION, the Argentinian-born choreographer and dancer Carmen Caceres embarks on a bold social experiment, empowering her viewers to do just that – allowing audiences to change the course of (imaginary) history by the acts of the direct, democratic voting process. At the center of this trilogy is a conflict between two neighboring countries, divided over access to natural resources, immigration laws, and economic policies – issues familiar to everyone who follows modern international affairs. Every time the story on stage is about to take a sharp turn, the viewers get to vote on how to solve the conflict that is set in fantasy lands but based on very real issues that affect our planet today.
Framed by dramatic choreography set to vivid Latin tunes, enhanced by video projections and participatory activities, Welcome to imagi*Nation is one part humorous fable and one part an activist project, geared toward highlighting hot-button issues and the importance of personal involvement in the world we live in.
