Event Details

“This is a Caribbean Story of power cuts and generators, of crossroads and ocean crossings, of haunted bodies and dancing souls.“ Pedro De Senna.

OrientePlus/ Power Cut is a brand new Signdance show written by Pedro De Senna with additional material from Tarik Ross Cameron and Lionel M. Macauley. It fuses music from Cuba with Signdance’s characteristic playful wickedness and spoken text in Spanish, English and Sign Language.
Oriente Plus was also inspired by a series of interviews about island memories and identity.

It is a story of the things that keep us together, even when the world tears us apart. A story about music, poetry and culture. A story that moves in it’s own way, sinuous, snake-like, circling like a vulture, gliding and drifting through the air.

A story about family losing themselves and finding themselves in the memories of all the mothers and children that came before them and made them who they are. You can find out more about the research and development here.
