Religare (Latin: to bind back to the source; root of “religion”) Part ritual, part political act, part dance-theater. . Life meets art head on.
Contraband has been taking audiences to unexpected, often scary worlds they would never go to alone…
A place of bitter memories and sad reflection, the “pit” has degenerated over the past 10 years into a garbage dump, homeless shelter (and shooting gallery), broken glass and old mattresses its only adornments. . .
