Choreographer Silvana Cardell's 2014 Center-funded performance work Supper, People on the Move travels to the experimental theater La MaMA in New York City, as part of the 2016 La MaMa Moves! Dance Festival.
A native of Argentina, and now a US citizen, Cardell's large-scale work is inspired and informed by the immigration process. Each performance of Supper concludes with a shared meal between dancers and audience members, during which all parties are encouraged to participate in guided conversations around immigration and its impact on human lives.
