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.
