Video Promo by Magic Spoon Productions: RIDE THE WAVE, The Vortex, Austin

(video promo by Jose Lozano, Magic Spoon Productions)

The VORTEX proudly presents the premiere of Ride the Wave, a new multimedia performance telling the story of 3 bros searching for an epic surf on the last day of summer. In this piece, set in a loosely imagined 2060s rich with vibes, grooves, and laughter, a group of young women riff on the surfer bro trope to examine how friendship, the pursuit of freedom, and growing up will be impacted by climate catastrophe.

JANUARY 12-28!
