The themes of Catalyst are built upon the ensemble’s personal experiences and reactions to issues of violence, police brutality and economic disparity, exhibiting the ways in which people encounter power or the feeling of powerlessness and how we as people approach fear in this society.
"Culture Wars" was an interdisciplinary performance piece that interrogated the issues that divide us as a people. The show critiqued the ways in which poverty, racism, homophobia, xenophobia, etc., distract us from the big picture of injustice and inequality in our society. The performance was an expression of how these issues affect us personally and politically, as well as an exploration of alternative ways of relating to one another.
“Culture Wars” was performed May 12, 2011 as part of the Culture Shock Festival a three day student organized festival, coordinated with the Department of Art and Public Policy at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts and on June 6, 2011 at the Greater Hartford Academy for the Arts in Hartford, CT.
