Stories of Dislocation

September 26 - October 6, 2019
Center for Performance Experiment

Conceived and directed by Robyn Hunt &
Developed by the Ensemble

Stories of Dislocation merges the physically expressive art of slow tempo performance with the unvarnished realism of documentary theatre to honor the varied experiences of modern-day immigrants. The piece offers two very different movements: one in which each actor recreates, in exact detail, an interview they have conducted with a real-life immigrant to the US, and the other in silence, with actors portraying characters travelling in slow tempo toward the unknown, toward the next thing, possibly even deliverance.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
