Open Rehearsals of ‘Oriente Plus’ by Signdance Collective
Oriente Plus/Power Cut is a brand new Signdance Theatre show written by Pedro de Senna with additional material from Tarik Ross Cameron and Lionel M. Macauley. It fuses Cuban Free Hop music from David Omni with Signdance Collective’s unique style and 3D visual settings by artist Viviana Fernandez Molinares.
This is the first Signdance theatre outdoor touring piece created specifically for the “new state of being”. It’s a story of the things that keep us together, even when the world tears us apart. A story about music, poetry and culture. A story that moves in its own way: sinuous , snake-like, circling like a vulture, gliding and drifting through the air. A story about family losing themselves and finding themselves in the memories of all the mothers and children that came before them and made them who they are.
Please note that this a work in progress rather than a full performance. Signdance Collective would like to invite people to come along and get involved with the development of the work.
“This is a Caribbean Story of power cuts and generators, of crossroads and ocean crossings, of haunted bodies and dancing souls.“ – Pedro de Senna
