UPCOMING Performances in 2017


July 1 & 2, 2017 - 12pm & 2:30pm

A site-specific journey through an urban garden

Commissioned by AXIS and directed and choreographed by the internationally renowned site artist, Stephan Koplowitz, and featuring a live score by the acclaimed composer and vocalist Pamela ZOccupy mines the intersection of space and its connection to our personal, domestic, physical and spiritual bodies. How does our occupation and navigation of space, when the very notion is being challenged, translate into our sense of who we are? Who gets in? Who gets pushed out?  

Occupy is a promenade performance of distinct chapters tied to specific locations in the gardens. Audiences will be guided from location to location. Featuring twenty performers, both with and without disabilities, Occupy offers both an immersive and expansive experience.
