Gabri Christa's Solo Performance at Theater Lab NYC Concludes

November 26, 2018

Gabri Christa, Director of the Movement Lab and Assistant Professor of Professional Practice in Dance, just concluded two weeks of performances at Theater Lab NYC. She performed Magdalena, a multimedia, solo dance performance that reveals a deeply personal account of experiencing her Dutch mother’s dementia, and an effort to piece together her past, marked by struggles with war, interracial marriage and unconventional motherhood. The piece marks a stage comeback for Christa, whose work has been hailed as “stunning… multimedia dream” by The New York Times.

Guy de Lancey, Studio Manager of the Media Center & Movement Lab, served as the performance's Dramaturg and Technical Director.
