More about Dark Moon:
Are we alone or together? Questioning the permeability of solidarity, Dark Moon is a place for us to explore our differentiated selves. Activating imaginative environments to thrive in, we work to find, feel, and care for one another. The labor of this support is demonstrated and amplified. We dance to locate differentiated collectivity. We carry and hold each other up and set each other down. We frame the mundane, memorializing a moment that might otherwise be overlooked. We are asking ourselves to look again, to abandon the familiar, and move closer to one another. We invite you to to do the same.
The performance practice is about an hour and a half. Run times vary as the score is emergent from the performers each night. Steve Sugalski’s live composition can get loud at times. We will provide earplugs for those who might be sensitive to loud music.
