A colorful collection of gravediggers at a New Hampshire cemetery are suddenly at risk of losing their livelihoods when the Walmart of cemeteries opens just across the street. Faced with the possible loss of their dysfunctional but comforting existence, they do what most people would do in this circumstance, they try to buy their graveyard by putting on a play to raise money. What could go wrong?
What happened if we lost a part of ourselves when we move? How could you retrieve something, that has been lost, what is that journey? What was and what couldn’t be, a part of ourselves missing, perhaps a wedding that brings the family together. To wait for that train, to hear and really listen the trains that passed, the parts of ourselves that left us already in that wagon.
El Próximo Tren is an intent of collective memory and dreaming workshopping. We take as a starting point El próximo tren of Alfredo Rosenbaum to try to explore the reality of immigration and diasporic experience of movement in a piece of devising. Inviting to witness and question el próximo tren in its exploratory process, su hora de llegada y nuestros rituales.
Celebrating the legacy of Marcy Plavin, the founder of the Bates College dance program, this concert will feature works from faculty and nationally renowned repertory artists. Student artists engage with the choreographers throughout the Winter semester in the Dance Repertory & Repertory Styles courses and bring their dynamic works to the stage. Each repertory artist’s diverse way of moving and creating art empower student artists to expand their definition of dance as a powerful mode of artistic expression.
