In Sea of Common Catastrophe, Jeff Becker leads the ArtSpot ensemble in a deep consideration of the profound transformations that have swept through New Orleans in the decade since Hurricane Katrina, and of our own roles and responsibilities as artists in the realities of gentrification and displacement.

Using a devised ensemble process in which visual design elements have driven the dramaturgy of the piece, Jeff Becker's sculptural innovation, Courntey Egan's magical video projections, Jeffrey Gunshol's liquid choreography and ArtSpot's physical performance-making style and original music have created a dream-world imagining of a community inundated by a flood of change and upheaval.
