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.
As a way to celebrate our Digital Dance Care Package series for this past year, Artistic Director Laura Karlin developed a micro film festival titled Cinema Care Packages earlier in February and March of 2021. The screening to showcase some of these wonderful dance film/care packages for the general public. What followed was a wonderful community exchange of hearts and words. Our time of distance this past year was eased a bit by the soul sending, receiving, and making the dance care package. Read the wonderful article by writers Jeff Layton, Joanne DiVito, Celine Kiner, and Mary Pat Cooney – on LA Dance Chronicle here about the Cinema Care Package event.

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.
