Negative Mirror presents a dance related event produced by Duke emeritus faculty Tyler Walters and Julie Janus Walters, with Dr. Killian Manning.

The City: A Portal
Free and open to the public
December 2 - 5, 2021
Open for viewing 6-9pm
The Ark, Lower Floor, 14 Epworth Dorm Lane, Duke University East Campus

This immersive environment continues our exploration of the delights and problematics of cities. Highlights from The City: A Portal include: idiosyncratic uses of video projections that layer presence with transience and transparency, destabilizing our understanding of inhabiting a space or even belonging in it, questioning our notions of the real, the imagined, the hyperreal; soundscapes using text excerpts from Italo Calvino's "Invisible Cities" as a poetic backdrop against which alternative voices respond; interactive map-making designed to explore issues of freedom of movement, contested migrations, anthropogenic destruction, and failed utopian projects; Calvino-inspired curios that invite inquiry into memory, desire, death, and decay.
