the end / the beginning by cullen + them

cullen+them, founded by Hannah Cullen, is an intergenerational performing arts organization. The company's latest work “the end / the beginning” is an existential, theatrical event about fracture and possibility. An amalgam of movement, narrative, and film, the work provides multiple perspectives through which to view the disintegration of their reality. If the end of the world as we know it has already happened, is currently happening, and will happen again, might our time be better spent focusing on what we’d like to begin?

Written and Directed by Hannah Cullen

Performed and Choreographed by Hannah Cullen in collaboration with Robyn Ayers, Nadia Halim, Maggie Joy, and Matilda Mackey

DiP Residency In-Process Showing:
How Do I Become WE by Parijat Desai

Choreographed by Parijat Desai, How Do I Become WE will be a performance and participatory ritual built around this evocative Tamil women's tale and structured by reimagined elements of the autumnal Navratri festival. Employing culturally rooted and experimental practices, with a dose of trickster play, the piece inquires into the process of reconnecting with the natural world and our inner power, releasing hurt, and activating the collective body.

Cracked Teeth by BITEdown Collective

Led by director Aundrea Anderson, BITEdown Collective presents its 2021-2022 season work, Cracked Teeth. The work is a study of the grieving process. Asking how does one grieve the loss of love through parts of self and parts of past selves? It is a study of how these emotions are planted in our body and where they ultimately take root. The work is a projection of the collective mind as it pieces itself back together.
