LPAC Preview- Keystone and Narcoleptic Lovers from Carolyn Dorfman Dance Company on Vimeo.
Interior Designs (ID), a new work by Carolyn Dorfman, is being premiered as part of the 30 year celebration of the Carolyn Dorfman Dance Company (www.cddc.info) on May 17 and 18, 2013, at the LaGuardia Performing Arts Center (www.lagcc.cuny.edu/lpac/). Through ID, Ms. Dorfman has created an immersive environment for the audience that reveals the internal and external worlds of both performer and spectator as the entire theater becomes the stage.
"If art is created by the dialogue between performer and observer, then the internal and external events, thoughts, and reactions are key to the experience,” Dorfman explains. “By using the entire theater as the stage, I am interested in interrupting the traditional expectations of the audience by driving individuals to make viewing choices, challenge issues of personal and collective space, and inspire unique connections.”

On the eve of Election Day in 2004, in the suburban wasteland skirting Phoenix, Mitch and Drew, two white community college students with a penchant for radical politics of the Black Panthers Movement, hope to overthrow "The Joe," the controversial and powerful sheriff of Maricopa County. When their zine, “The Stick Up,” finds its way into the hands of an unexpected visitor, the impact of their words takes on new urgency resulting in an epic exchange of power, ideas, and crossfire.
All performances are FREE and followed by Q&A
