Everett of Providence, Rhode Island: Nov. 2 & 3, 2012
November 2 & 3, 2012 8:30pm
Aronoff Center for the Arts
EVERETT is a unique and innovative dance theatre group.
Their work blends dance, video, music, and theater, tackling fascinating subjects. Their latest piece Brain Storm resulted from years of research and development, during which Everett worked with scientists and people living with brain injuries.
The Village Voice of New York has described the experience of their work as one that allows audiences to “understand the transformative nature of art.” An audience member of Brain Storm wrote, “As in any great performance, Brain Storm touched my heart and challenged my mind.”
Become a part of the storm by experiencing this evening of vibrant images, sound, movement, and drama designed to immerse your brain.
Free Meet-the-Artists Q&A Reception
Following Friday evening’s performance, continue the experience that is Brain Storm by joining Everett for a free reception.
The performance will be interpreted on the Friday evening performance in American Sign Language.
