North Fourth Art Center presents an annual presentation of original work by VSA resident mixed ability companies Buen Viaje Dance Company Equilibrium Theater Company.
Whimsy by Buen Viaje Dance Company
A new collection of original choreography exploring the fanciful and dreamlike components of our lives. Through movement, props and costumes, the company transports the audience to another world, a world a little freer than the one we know.
Breaking Bars by Equilibrium Theater Company
An original play exploring the importance of personal expression and the locked doors we sometimes face in our quest to be free. In the totalitarian world of tomorrow, those who dare to create art and express themselves are imprisoned and punished for their individuality. It's up to three unlikely time travelers to save their friends from execution... and the world from the dark tyranny of bland conformity!
