CARTOGRAPHY: Kaneza Schaal & Christopher Myers
What are the journeys you have made? What maps guided you through? Re-experience theater at its best in this new work designed for audiences young and old. Brought to you by Brooklyn based artists, Kaneza Schaal & Christopher Myers, journey with four young people as they leave their worlds behind and begin new. Combining simple storytelling with interactive video technology, CARTOGRAPHY engages you from start to finish. Performed by a diverse company of actors from El Salvador, Syria, Lebanon, and Rwanda, this is theater for our times, theater for all ages, and theater at its most relevant.
For one time only, revisit this highlight from The Arts Center’s archives, filmed in The Black Box on February 13th, 2020. Bridge the distance, join the community online.
Be engaged with dazzling visual tools like map-making along with performance elements such as filmmaking and dancing.
Sculptures create an array of visual journeys; sound sensors respond to actors’ voices, activating a virtual storm; and cellphones are used to mark memories and distances traveled. Developed in part at NYU Abu Dhabi, including the work of NYUAD Interactive Media graduates.
