Nina Haft & Company Debuts New Performance On Animals And Extinction

Nov 13, 2019

On this edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with Nina Haft & Company about their new immersive performance, 'Precarious Pod', which explores animals and extinction.

'Precarious Pod' invites audience members to move around freely to observe and explore how human and animal instincts collide. What can we learn about our relationship to animal species and how can we think about extinction through the lens of performance art?

Guests:

Nina Haft, artistic director of Nina Haft & Company

Rogelio Lopez, dancer, lighting designer and choreographer of Rogelio Lopez & Dancers
