Studio5 presents the regional premiere of Open Dance Project’s Panopticon -- the Houston-based company’s newest immersive work set in the year 2151.  Panopticon is an hour-long immersive production choreographed by Annie Arnoult (Dance Magazine’s 25 to Watch in 2018) in collaboration with the performers and inspired by Open Dance Project’s research into the sci-fi world of retro-futuristic dystopias. Set in a world where “citizens” are constantly being watched, a la George Orwell’s 1984, Panopticon follows two would-be lovers struggling with their desire for physical and emotional intimacy in a world where deep, human connection is forbidden.
