INTERWEAVE

Co-creation between Carla Alcantara and Kaili Che 

INTERWEAVE is an energetic piece of physical theater and contemporary dance. The work addresses the importance of incorporating play, laughter and imagination into our daily lives.

Both artists were inspired by their favorite childhood games and the empowerment it gave them growing up. As they reflect on adulthood, they question the pressure, responsibilities, and expectations of conforming to norms. Carla and Kaili believe that the balance between hard work and play can coexist and is much needed, especially after the pandemic. The work invites all types of audiences and age groups, while highlighting audience participation and interaction.
