HereAfter - Tom Caravaglia

Created by Patrik Widrig in collaboration with the company and local participants during community residencies throughout the world, these video pieces stand on their own (in galleries, student unions, department store windows) and also become part of the company’s live performances.

New video “portraits” can be created especially for your community as part of a residency project. Star in a future video when we come to your town!

Renewed the audience’s gusto for life.

Urban Hula

No longer set in paradise, this video piece takes the hula to new heights. You will never look at a garage door, a laundromat, a plant store, a fire station, or a billboard the same way again.
