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

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.
Funded by the California arts Council’s Artsits in Communities Grant.
Funded by the Japan Foundation.

THE KITCHEN TABLE PROJECT

An interconnected web of virtual happenings and performances. The kitchen table becomes a stage, a platform, a place of gathering, a call for justice, a site of memories, and a whimsical wonderland.
