The Moving Architects presents excerpts of the acclaimed "Americana" at Montclair Art Museum as part of Free First Thursdays. Enjoy an evening of free art and dynamic programming in a family friendly event!
Recently presented by Brooklyn's Triskelion Arts, "Americana" continues Artistic Director Erin Carlisle Norton’s focus of embodying past and distant spaces in the heightened present of live performance. "Americana" looks to the iconic images and interpersonal struggles of the migrating American family during the Great Depression era. Through exactingly rhythmic movement, tornadoes of meaningful interaction, and heartfelt gentleness, this women-centric work exemplifies the expansiveness of the Midwest prairies, fragility of the weathered spirit, and grit needed to survive rough times.
