SUPPER people on the move
From choreographer Silvana Cardell, a new dance performance inspired by themes of migration
Supper, People on the Move explores the complex experience of dislocation. The dance is an examination of the human experience of all people on the move, looking for new horizons. Physical bodies moving between physical places define migration, and the immigrant journey is at the heart of humanity’s ability to survive. From this rich and fertile history Cardell creates evocative forms of movement—abstract, personal, universal—performed with unrelenting physicality and striking moments of beauty.
Please join us in the lobby one-hour prior to the show to experience Portraits of People on The Move, a companion exhibition chronicling stories of Philadelphia-area immigrants curated by Jennifer Baker.
Presented by Drexel University Department of Performing Arts / Performed by Cardell Dance Theater
