Production Description:
“Somewhere Near Water” pays homage to the city of Manchester and by extension, all mill cities. From the stories of first-generation Americans, the experience of new people and their contributions to the development and success of a region is captured through the metaphor of water. In this new, devised work, NHDC will use collaborative and interdisciplinary processes to create a performance in which dance, theater, music and set design will blend into a moving and immediate experience.
