About the Artists:
CONCRETE TEMPLE THEATRE
CONCRETE TEMPLE THEATRE is a multi-disciplinary company, committed to the creation of compelling new theatrical works, incorporating drama, dance, puppetry, music and the visual arts. Since 2004, our company has created devised visual theatre that challenges the traditional relationship between design and text. Through touring original works and presenting workshops in NYC, nationally and internationally, we strive to bring myth and ritual back to the center of dialogue, by presenting works and workshops that address real issues within communities (grief, family relationships, environmental stewardship). www.ConcreteTempleTheatre.com

CHARLY SANTAGADO & BAILEY BENOOT / mignolo dance
mignolo dance is a 501-c3 nonprofit contemporary dance company founded by sisters Charly & Eriel Santagado in 2017. Based in Metuchen, NJ, much of the company’s work explores elements of various artistic disciplines through movement. The Grammar of Space seeks to investigate the full spectrum of meaning and non-meaning through the strategic division of space. How do the places we occupy impact our own experiences and the way others perceive us? What can we learn from distance and proximity?
