A seven week residency at 3LD Art and Technology Center in New York City culminated in the world premiere of The Only Tribe. The piece ran from December 3rd until December 20th, 2008.

Conceived by Roland Gebhardt, this unique theatrical experience utilizes masks, dance, sound, lighting and projected images to explore issues of societal identity in an abstract interpretation of a short story by Rebecca Bannor-Addae. Choreography by Peter Kyle, music by Stephen Barber, video design by Reid Farrington, and lighting design by Stephen Arnold.

Featuring dancers Christina Amendolia, Vincent McCloskey, Océane McCord, Rebecca Rainey, Ellenore Scott, Diego Vásquez, Emily Walsh, and Matthew Westerby.

Development of The Only Tribe continues after the residency at 3LD. Alternate venues in the United States and Europe are being explored to host future productions of the piece.
