Based on themes of identity, dreams, and desires, World of Dreams is a continuation of emotionally-charged Dig 2012 and The Keepers Project 2013 created in collaboration with video artist and longtime collaborator, Carmella Vassor-Johnson. In this new ensemble dance, choreographer/director Anne-Marie Mulgrew uses as a point of departure the questions: What is and what makes an American? Is the American dream alive, breathing, misplaced, or has it been absorbed and impacted by the global world we all live in? Audiences will be taken on a non-linear adventure through a series of dance vignettes set to big band, classical, new age, and contemporary music, text, sounds, projected imagery and unexpected costumes.
There will be a meet and greet with light refreshments with the company following each performance.
