A new work choreographed by Marissa Wong, Family Room recreates a studio apartment through an innovative set design of furniture and home decor. This provides the foundation for a series of evocative solos which interact with household objects, each object representing a complex relationship, dynamic, and history between different family members.
Supported through the Artist-in-Residence program.
