Anna and The Annadroids to Premiere Entrancing New Production, Multiverse, April 13 & 14

Original Multiverse Comic Book Will Accompany Production

Multimedia dance and aerial company Anna and The Annadroids’ will premiere its fantastical, edgy, and emotional new production, Multiverse, in Columbus. Fusing athletic contemporary dance with graceful aerial arts, dramatic fashion design, powerful music, and surreal video environments, Multiverse playfully explores ideas of parallel universes, time travel, black holes, and other scientific theories that reach farther than our present understanding of the universe.

CAPA presents Anna and The Annadroids: Multiverse at the Riffe Center’s Studio One (77 S. High St.) on Thursday, April 12, at 8pm; Friday, April 13, at 8pm; and Saturday, April 14, at 8pm.

An exciting new component infused into this production is an original Multiverse comic book which will be available for purchase at each performance. Illustrated by Uko Smith, a professor at the Columbus College of Art and Design, the book will offer audiences an illustrated guide of the production’s journey through current theories on nature and the makeup of the universe into a world of the unknown beyond the three dimensions.

Anna and The Annadroids is based bicoastally in Oakland (CA) and Columbus. Multiverse will premiere in Columbus, then play San Francisco. Annadroids from both Columbus and Oakland will join forces for both engagements.
