| Andean Mountains is a digital journey through the mountains. Above all, it is a piece about personal geography: the way we relate to our place of origin versus where we've relocated. Living in the realm of not-quite-theatre, the piece is both a Google Street View tour as well as an exploration of culture loss. Featuring a performance by a juicy Colombian bear, audiences will digitally globe-trot to various locations from sunny Miami to rugged Bogot� to urban Philadelphia.
This performance is the recipient of Fringearts' brand new Camp Fringe residency, and is a part of the 2017 Neighborhood Fringe Festival.
