2010, Essex County, NJ.  When Denitra loses the charter school lottery for her daughter, she must find another way to escape from their underperforming neighborhood school. The answer seems like a risk well worth taking, but may end up requiring a bigger sacrifice than she ever could have imagined. Set over a half-century after Brown Versus The Board of Education, LINES IN THE DUST questions how far we've come and more importantly, where we go from here.  (Luna Stage Commission)

Prayog, Multimedia Dance Performance, Painted Bride Art Center, Philadelphia, PA, 2019

with Three Aksha Ensemble

Projection Design and Visuals by Laia Cabrera & Isabelle Duverger

At its core, Bharatanatyam is a structural mapping of numbers on a surface. In this production, Rao creates a dialogue between the numbers and the inherent spirituality of the form, resulting in a movement tapestry. Prayog showcases both the mathematics in dance and the dance in mathematics. This production premiered at the York Wood Theatre, Toronto, Canada and was also performed at St. Matthews Auditorium, Halifax, Canada. PRAYOG also toured 13 cities in the U.S. during the summer of 2008. The Indian government then invited Three Aksha to perform the piece in Delhi, Pune, Ahmadabad, Hyderabad, Bangalore and Chennai and in several cities of United States.

The Heiber family lives in a world that's rapidly crumbling, plagued by flawed and outdated social and political models. Meanwhile a group of aristocrats, led by Helmut Ronen, is creating the perfect city as the answer to all society's problems: RONENSBOURGH. Ronensbourgh is a very contemporary and highly experimental piece, written in a Heiner Müller's style. The play possesses relevant questions about identity, society and home; about the conception of those ideas, and the dislodging of the very things our society holds as important.

Until There (video concert performance), 2009
Laia Cabrera with For Feather and Isabelle Duverger


“Until There” starts with images and movement as a visual storytelling, a sensual journey of the imaginary world of the filmmaker and visual artist, Laia Cabrera. Four screens with two video streams will surround you with a unique visual experience of timelessness and human landscape. She uses a variety of media: projected imagery merging cinematic arts, dance, photography, theater, visual arts, writing etc... As a part of the performance, Laia Cabrera will be working with visuals and drawing animation by Isabelle Duverger projected live in conjunction with indie pop/rock For Feather. The band has mastered the art of turning the mundane into the marvelous. Quirky melodies pull rather than push the listener, keeping things light with spacious harmonies evoking the early Beatles.

La jaula bajo el trapo (multimedia theater play), 2008
A play by Maria Negroni. 30 minutes
This play comes from a poem in dialogue that presents the loving duel to death between a mother and her daughter. Their interaction is represented, however, as the daughter’s recollections of disquieting images, emotions and passions repressed by her conscience, a relentless guard. The mental space is intervened by the voice of a man that brings the external world into the scene in the form of a a radio emission with fragments of the urban life and quotes of both high and popular culture.
