Theaterlab presents
Signdance Collective’s production of
Carthage/Cartagena
July 19 – 21 | Wed – Fri at 8pm
Tickets: $20 HERE

Set in an imagined despoiled, war-torn landscape, Carthage/Cartagena uncovers the lost voices of those who have been displaced and isolated by slavery, human trafficking, and forced migration. Signdance Collective imagines Caridad Svich’s text, which is constructed as a series of ten song-poems, through their signature hybrid form, incorporating dance, theatre, music and languages both spoken and signed.

Written by Obie Award winner Caridad Svich
Performed by Signdance Collective
Director: The Company with Joke Menssink and Beatriz Cabur
Cast: Lionel Macauley, Isolte Avila,  David Bower, & Angelina Schwammmerlin

From 1987 to 2000, Signdance Collective’s directors-Isolte Avila and David Bower-began constructing their unique fusion of sign theatre, dance, and original live music. In 2001, they officially formed Signdance Collective, a company crafting new and original work built on inclusivity, with a focus on disability- and deaf-led work. They have forged a number of international collaborations, delivering workshops and producing “innovative and creatively brilliant performances” (Diversity Awards, BBC) across the globe.

The production of Carthage/Cartagena is funded, in part, by Arts Council England. Presented by Theaterlab.
