“An astonishingly seamless blend of words, video, set elements, and dance. . . more tears, laughter, and poignant memory than high-tech effects.” —New York Times
The latest from Providence–based Everett Dance Theatre, the deeply resonant Home Movies explores memory and the modern American family, intertwining deft humor, compelling images, and eloquent movement. The work’s deliberately lo-fi aesthetic is a perfect complement to the beguiling humanism that guides not only the piece itself, but the company’s ethos. This multigenerational, multicultural, and multimedia piece features five dancers, four families, and a tightly woven web of stories about loss, triumph, and the poignant moments in life that define us all. A Q&A follows the Friday performance.
