The After Party
March 10–13, 2022
Directed by Erika Chong Shuch
Created in Collaboration with the Performers
You’re invited to The After Party—a social event that flirts with performance… or a performance that flirts with a social event? Co-hosted by seven ensemble members, this gathering dances in the space between celebration and grief as we navigate the necessity and impossibility of our togetherness. Guests should be ready to throw their hands up in joy and despair!
