Portal: A Dance Theatre Performance

May 12, 2023@7:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Taking place on May 12 and May 13, at 7:30 pm, Portal is an immersive, multi-disciplinary experience, in which poetry, video, sound score, and dance are bathed in magenta, drawing viewers into a unique and impactful evening.

MAD artists Kitty Clark and Ray Shaw have collaborated with poet and climate justice advocate Neha Misra नेहा मिश्रा and composer Cam Millar. The piece is a call to reconnect, get grounded, and face our collective crises with urgency and empathy as we emerge out of the pandemic and remember how to connect with ourselves, others, and our planet.

Misra’s impactful poem is both poignant and a call to action. Millar’s sound score incorporates sounds from nature while driving the piece forward. Clark and Shaw, in their signature style, have created an immersive environment in which contemplation and action sit side-by-side. An evocative film places audience members in the midst of mountainside woods.

The Y Arts Center is an intimate venue, where every seat is front row.
