Mixing dance and theater, Lida Winfield presents Imaginary, in collaboration with Ellen Smith Ahern, Joseph Hall Laurel Jenkins and Maree ReMalia, a deep, quirky, innovative, and socially poignant work that explores perception in relation to imagination, commissioned in part by Jacob’s Pillow through the National Performance Network. The work addresses the fact that imagination is a nearly universal human trait, though it is shaped by both personal and environmental factors. Winfield believes that our country is at a critical juncture and that it is hard to know what is real, alleged, and what will unfold. Imaginary will engage community and audience members on how the imagination assists in shaping the potential and reality of our world.
Imaginary is a National Performance Network (NPN) Creation Fund Project co-commissioned by The Flynn Center for the Performing Arts in partnership with Jacob’s Pillow, Middlebury Performing Arts Series, and The Yard.
