What’s New at Invertigo
Invertigo is moving and shaking, now and throughout the year.
WE ARE CONSTANTLY IN MOTION WITH INITIATIVES, COLLABORATIONS, CLASSES, AND ARTISTIC WORK — CREATING NEW ONES, DEEPENING EXISTING ONES.
The Dream Eaters is an intergenerational dance theatre piece and cultural project that centers on the Japanese folktale of the Baku, a mythological creature who eats nightmares and then transforms them into new and beautiful dreams. Weaving a bold and compassionate tale, The Dream Eaters examines the roots of fear, brain function, and the cultural powers of healing. Tree-like illustrations of the brain’s neural pathways by Nobel Prize-winning neuroscientist Santiago Ramón y Cajal (1852-1934) create a powerful and provocative landscape upon which a group of people travel. Together they move through trauma, imagination, healing, and hope.
This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Touring will continue this fall in North Carolina at Paramount Theatre & Goldsboro Event Center (October 18-22, 2022) and at the Wilson Center (October 23-28, 2022). We’re still in search of community partners and additional spaces looking for dance companies to come through their doors. If you’d like to connect with us about the tour, please email Creative Engagement Director, K. Bradford at [email protected].
Invertigo Dance Theatre invites you to join us in our first Live show of 2022, The Kitchen Table Project: A Time To Gather. We will pay tribute to the kitchen table as a site of lineage, connection, and now as our office, virtual classroom, and a place to host our Zoom parties when we would give anything to be crowded together beyond the small screen-squares. In this new site specific and interactive dance theatre piece, we bring our kitchen table to you. Let us gather and explore how we connect as humans, hold space, share stories and remember. To mourn for all we have lost, and to celebrate all we have to be grateful for.
This performance is made possible in part by the City of Culver City and its Cultural Affairs Commission, with support from Sony Pictures Entertainment and Culver City Arts Foundation.
This activity is funded in part by the California Arts Council, a state agency.
