Middletown Arts Center Presents Persephone

(MIDDLETOWN, NJ) -- The Middletown Arts Center, in collaboration with EWC (Elizabeth White Creative), presents PERSEPHONE, an immersive multimedia dance theatre production centering around a unique intersection of two traditional Greek Myths: Persephone and Hades and Orpheus and Eurydice. This is the first official production by EWC as a Middletown Arts Center Resident Company. The performance will take place on Saturday, September 28th at 7:00pm.  Admission is $30.

PERSEPHONE reimagines the fall of young goddess Persephone, and the grueling obstacles she must face to harness her ultimate fate of transforming the heart of the underworld. World-class contemporary dance fuses with state-of-the-art technology to bring inventive forms of immersive storytelling to life before audiences. Synchronized soundscapes, dynamic projection-mapped environments and spirited emotional landscapes all merge into one omnipotent channel of expression to produce a magnificent, never-before-seen, story of abduction, transformation, transcendence and ultimate liberation.

Elizabeth Caroline White is the founder of EWC (The Elizabeth White Creative), an immersive multimedia dance theater company at the intersection of contemporary ballet, visual arts and interactive technology. She has been creative director, choreographer, and visual designer on performances and events for leading companies, including Google and Teach for America.

After twenty years of classical ballet and modern dance training, Elizabeth earned an MPS (Master of Professional Studies) from NYU Tisch’s Interactive Telecommunications Program, also known as the “Center for the Recently Possible.” There she explored innovative ways of combining the performing arts with emerging technologies. Preceding NYU, Elizabeth trained and performed at The Ailey School while obtaining a bachelor’s degree in Visual Arts at Fordham University, Lincoln Center.

On a continual exploration of movement, visual arts and technology, her work aims to expand possibilities for deepened expression through performance and transport audiences to heightened states of reality through immersive and innovative multimedia creations.
