Shelter in Love at LaGuardia Performing Arts Center
How do we experience and redefine love and art while in isolation? Through regular, virtual meetings since April 2020, a diverse group of artists has created a trove of original, quarantine-inspired content—stories, images, video and music. Now we are ready to present a vibrant live performance based on this material. Shelter in Love is a multimedia show that combines live performance with video and music, while exploring themes raised or amplified during the pandemic: isolation, social and racial inequality, violence, technological innovation… oh, and love.
Shelter in Love is a production of Eclipses Group Theater NY in collaboration with a group of wonderful artists and in partnership with the LaGuardia Performing Arts Center’s Global Program.
- This project is made possible (in part) by the Queens Council on the Arts with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council; and
