Boston Theatre Scene

Boston Dancemakers Residency Showcase

Not Eye, Us

Presented by Boston Center for the Arts, Directed by Fernadina Chan in partnership with Continuum Dance Project (CDP) co-director, Adriane Brayton, Not Eye, Us is an immersive dance-theatre work exploring the intersection of gaze and power through a multi-layered connection to Michael Alfano’s sculpture ‘Cubed’. Through manipulation of the sculpture’s nine moveable pieces, each pigmented with a different skin tone, Not Eye, Us examines individual diversity within a united community; propelling the audience and performers on an interactive journey.

This new cross-disciplinary dance challenges audiences to consider the impact of external perception on race and gender, while empowering them to interact with, touch, and take ownership of the work.

Director & Choreographer | Fernadina Chan & Adriane Brayton
Performers & Contributors | Adriane Brayton, Mayra Hernandez, Sarah Pacheco, Lonnie Stanton,  Jennifer Roberts (alternate)
Dramaturg | Jennine Willett, Third Rail Projects
Scenic Design | Sculpture by Michael Alfano
Technical Director & Light Designer | Anne Dresbach
