NEW YORK – Eclipses Group Theater NY (EGTNY) presents its latest production Shelter in Love at the LaGuardia Performing Arts Center Mainstage on February 16-17, 7 PM, and February 18, 6 PM.
How do we experience and redefine love and art while in isolation? Through regular, virtual meetings since April 2020, a diverse group of artists has created a trove of original, quarantine-inspired content— stories, images, video, and music. Now, EGTNY presents a vibrant live performance based on this material. Shelter in Love is a multimedia show that combines live performance with video and music, while exploring themes raised or amplified during the pandemic: isolation, social and racial inequality, violence, technological innovation… oh, and love.
Shelter in Love is a production of Eclipses Group Theater NY in collaboration with a group of wonderful artists and in partnership with the LaGuardia Performing Arts Center’s Global Program.
The project coordinators are Ioanna Katsarou, Handan Ozbilgin, and Demetri Bonaros.
