Set in the aftermath of a natural disaster, After It Happened, is a story of human resilience, desperation, and regrowth, as a community rebuilds itself and searches for hope among the refuse. Created in 2014, After it Happened was performed at The Ford in 2016.

“With wild abandon, slick partnering, and sensitive storytelling… After It Happened strategically melds dynamic physicality, voice, and music to reveal the human condition in a post-calamity community.”
– Bachtrack

LA Weekly Pick of the Week: “Invertigo Dance Theatre has a knack for taking an off-kilter viewpoint, creating insightful, contemporary dance theater tinged with wry humor.”
– LA Weekly

After it Happened is an intensely theatrical piece of transdisciplinary work by Invertigo Dance Theatre that creates a post-disaster world that manages to be disturbing, beautiful, and very, very funny, all at once.
