Stories of three women with ties to the Middle East make up the indelible ANGEL & ECHOES, part of Brits Off Broadway at 59E59 Theaters
ANGEL is inspired by the story of a modern legend, the Kurdish freedom fighter The Angel of Kobane. According to lore, she shot 100 ISIS fighters when they overtook her small town of Kobane in Syria, striking fear in the heart of jihadists.
ECHOES, back by popular demand after its sold-out too-short run at Brits Off Broadway last year, tells the parallel stories of two women born 175 years apart: a Victorian pioneer woman who wants to build an Empire and a present-day Islamist schoolgirl who wants to build a Caliphate.

TCS X ROYA CARRERAS: THE BIG BALLOON, conceived, directed and choreographed by Roya Carreras
With Caitlin Taylor, Elise Ritzel, Eloise DeLuca, Gregory Dolbashian, Maleek Washington
Produced by The CURRENT SESSIONS
Schedule: at ; at
Tickets: $15 - $25
The CURRENT SESSIONS is pleased to present the world premiere of The Big Balloon by Iranian-Hispanic artist and choreographer Roya Carreras.
In The Big Balloon, Roya Carreras reimagines a vanished childhood memory, surfacing a delicate world of fantasy and fragmented identity. Carreras’ choreography works within a series of deconstructed interiors, recalling domestic scenes from her childhood home in California. Set against field recordings of daily chores, intimate scenes captured on film register the vernacular of her daily routine. Persian rugs and astroturf line living spaces which—at once—act as stage and sanctuary, where Carreras’ distorted balletic gestures are worked into a detailed physical vocabulary. Forgotten vignettes resolve momentarily, before The Big Balloon is finally undone, opening a space to cross unseen cultural boundaries.
A limited-run booklet including translations in Spanish and Farsi, will be published as part of The Big Balloon performances. In the Living Room, a post-performance discussion between Carreras, moderator, and audience link process to upbringings on ; on a Wrap Party will follow.
The Big Balloon is part of the CURRENT SESSIONS’ 2017 curatorial focus “Resistance,” which looks to further classify movement into a broader spectrum by challenging systems of making and observing dance, and is first of a TCS-presented, solo-artist performance series.
