Material Deviance in Contemporary American Culture / You are not your car

Material Deviance In Contemporary American Culture (MDICAC) is an immersive installation, dance-theatre performance, and communal ritual. It grapples with the complexity of living in an object-based society where we define our identity through the objects we own. The performance interweaves the stories and physical histories of: immigrants and refugees who carry their homes on their shoulders; hoarders who compulsively accumulate anything and everything; and America’s growing homeless population. MDICAC includes dance, video, 3D mapping, installation, and the creation of an e-zine

Material Deviance In Contemporary American Culture (MDICAC) is made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts' National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
