Tribe in Motion 

When: Aug. 23-24, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $10-15
It's the age of the great disconnect. Technology mediates (and distances) our relationships, even as it renders entire job fields redundant. Where war once required an emotional disconnect from the enemy, drone and spy technology now permit a physical disconnect as well—combat by remote control, prosecuted by pilots and hackers in offices a continent away. At home, parents and kids spend more time relating to their electronic devices than they do with one another.

Once, the notion of tribes taught us much about how to live in harmony with one another and with the earth. Much of that knowledge now seems in danger of vanishing. Ethnographer and monologist Rremida Shkloza, performance artist Kegan Dean Rushing and choreographer Crystal Mays take local interviews with people seeking their own tribes—an Iraqi war veteran, a woman escaping domestic violence, a man having to find a new career after a technology shift—and embody them in story, dance and original music in this performance. Their goal: a new ritual, and a new perspective on understanding, love and (re)connection. —Byron Woods
