PH Dance Presents “The Migrant Body”

May 6, 2023 at 6:00 am - May 7, 2023 at 12:00 am

Event Series Event Series (See All)
$20

This dance performance examines human migration through the creative lens of PH Dance’s Artistic Director, Paula Higa. Deriving from her personal experience as a dual citizen of Brazil and the United States, Higa researched various motives for individual displacement. People migrate for many reasons, from new life experiences to security, from demography to human rights, and from socio-economic grounds to climate change. Thus, this performance focuses on the meaning of self-discovery by uncovering physical geography, the gap between past and present, and the sense of not having a home. Dancemaker Paula Higa proposes a reflection on who is not a migrant in this world.

Performances are:

Friday, May 5th at 7pm
Saturday, May 6th at 5pm
Saturday, May 6th at 7pm

Collaborators:
Original Music: Owen Belton
Dramaturgy: Mario Higa
Lighting Designer: Thomas Dunn
Production Manager: Haley Bradstreet
Performers: Carolyn Connor, Charlotte Feinberg, Candace Fugazy, Er Raff,  Olivia Schrantz, and Calvin Walker.
