    WHO: Invertigo Dance Theatre presents After It Happened – a story of trauma, hope, and healing.


    WHAT: Set in the aftermath of a natural disaster, Invertigo Dance Theatre’s After It Happened tells the story of a community rebuilding itself and searching for hope among the refuse. This moving performance blends dance, theater and live music, capturing the feelings of resilience, desperation and regrowth that come in tragedy’s aftermath.


    Recorded live on stage at The Ford in 2016, After It Happened was choregraphed by Laura Karlin in collaboration with the performers and features nine dancers, two musicians, comedy, tragedy, transformation and a dress made from blue trash bags and packing tape. Original music composed by Toby Karlin, Diana Lynn and Hyosun Choi.
