We Three Kings

Director / Choreographer / Conceptual

 
 
As an old man lies dying on the eve of a great storm, memories from his life intersect with the dreams of a young girl creating a tapestry of interwoven fact and fiction, documentation and lore reflecting a multi-perspectival history of Southern Lousiana, and its continual resilience in the wake of tragedy.

Through a mixture of live performance, fictional movement-based film, dialogue, song, and interviewed documentation of Katrina survivors and their continued efforts to rebuild both urban New Orleans and rural Louisiana in 2007, the piece offers a plethora of perspectives on the re-construction of New Orleans. Reflecting the controversial conflicted history of the city, and the rich melting pot of cultures in it, the piece both presents pertinent questions and celebrates the re-birth of the Crescent City.
