“Mob Mental.ity” is an interdisciplinary production featuring local dancers and musicians and renowned video and installation artists. The production illustrates the mentality of mobs — the psychology behind thinking like the group — and the consequences that follow.
Various mobs are depicted: religious, political, civic, social, etc. The concept is how an individual “I” becomes a collective “we.” The entire production is set to original live music, and dancers also interact with prerecorded video segments. Portico Dans Theatre uses four genres of dance in the production: aerial, contemporary, hip hop and modern. The performance will appeal to all ages.
