Another Place The Anthropologists


Support for this project has been provided by the Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance (NoMAA), JPMorgan Chase Foundation and the Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone, as well as the Hudson Heights Owners Coalition and generous individual donors.

Another Place played from April 27-29, 2011 in the Dorothy B. Williams Theatre.

About the show

What if you could build your own universe and leave your troubles behind - would you do it?

Cassandra, a physicist with communication problems, sees the opportunity to literally create a new universe where she can start over, unencumbered by her own failings. Can her partner's love, and belief in the human capacity for change, convince her otherwise? And what do Christopher Columbus, an oil exec and a 1940s housewife have to do with it?

Another Place examines the precarious role of the individual in the age of climate change and asks: does science liberate or destroy us?

The Anthropologists will use its signature method of fusing source materials, original writing and rigorous dramaturgy with expressive text and stylized movement to create this ensemble-devised play.
