Director and choreographer Sarah Dahnke offers a repeatable series of phrases and vignettes that converge and accumulate as they travel across Little Island. Shaped by the imagination and desires of long-time local residents in surrounding neighborhoods, who will collaborate on and perform in the project, a central question persists, “What would it feel like to create your own island?”


This is a Little Island commission.
