Supper, People on the Move

Supper, People on the Move is about mobility and decisions moving you: an action starts with a clear intention and it is carried away by a tide of impulses.” Silvana Cardell, choreographer

“Clusters of dancers crash together, uplift and crawl over one another, then explode away from the group as individuals.” Read Merilyn Jackson’s Philadelphia Inquirer article on Supper, People on the Move

From choreographer Silvana Cardell, a new dance performance inspired by themes of migration, Supper, People on the Move explores the complex experience of dislocation. The dance is an examination of the human experience of all people on the move, looking for new horizons. Physical bodies moving between physical places define migration, and the immigrant journey is at the heart of humanity’s ability to survive. From this rich and fertile history Cardell creates evocative forms of movement—abstract, personal, universal—performed with unrelenting physicality and striking moments of beauty.

“Cardell Dance Theater explores migration in new work.” Read the article by Tara Lynn Johnson in The Ticket
