The migrations of beings, gestures, and stories
Conception and Collaboration by Germana Civera
In collaboration with Core Dance
Sound Design by Didier Aschour
“Human Landscapes” is an embodied reflexion on history, memory, travel, encounters, the migration of beings, gestures and stories. Choreographer Germana Civera draws on her family’s own years in exile during the Spanish Civil War to create a multi-sensory performance in which the audience moves throughout the venue, following eight dancers on a migrant journey.
In an age marked by global dispersion and displacement, “Human Landscapes” seeks to address the physical and mental forms of alienation that unite all migrant subjects, regardless of era, culture and circumstances. It focuses on the stories and discourses of migration, the imaginary and poetics of migration and the transmission of exile experiences through history, memory, music, landscapes and choreography.
Advisory: Human Landscapes contains prolonged periods of full adult nudity.

Event to Support Core Dance
Core Dance creates art, facilitates art-making, and engenders art engagement for those seeking to connect with what makes us uniquely human: our intellect, our emotional body, our spiritual center. The body is our playground, movement our building blocks. Within our bodies resides the whole of life, every truth. Through dance and the process of creating it we activate that which makes us individually unique and connect it to that which makes us indivisibly One. Core Dance was founded in 1980 by Sue Schroeder. We call both Atlanta, GA and Houston, TX home. We cultivate dance awareness and education nationally and internationally through our three organizational initiatives: Core Performs, Core Presents and Core Connects. Core Performance Company, the professional contemporary dance company of Core, is internationally acclaimed for its emotionally lucid and instantly accessible work.
