The Factory - T148894044

This new production explores icons and identity, informed by the explosion of creativity, dynamism, hedonism and protest that marked the 60’s decade, much of which was reflected in Andy Warhol’s factory space on East 47 Street. Influenced by the subterranean underground arts scene during the late 50’s / 60’s New York City, Earthfall takes the factory as representing a catalyst for change, a place for freaks, creative outcasts and bacchanalian revelry. Multi-award winning Earthfall’s latest work using dance, film and live music is inspired by the underground New York arts scene of the ’50s/’60s, exploring the protests, creativity, and hedonism that marked the ’60s.

After the Birds - T843928797

After the Birds follows a group of rebels who attempt to create a new, pure, uncorrupted society halfway between humans and the gods. In this vision of a comedic non-conformist utopia and with reference to a politically unified but still divided Europe, the departure from one jaded and corrupt society leads to the formation of a seemingly new jaded and corrupt society inevitably involved in imposing heavy limitations and conditions.
