9/28/2017

In this quirky dance/theater piece, a drag queen show—inexplicably reminiscent of a women’s 1930s white lawn tennis match—gets turned upside down by the unexpected arrival of a new competitor, bet– on dissembling the close-knit group. Mixing colorful costume, prop, and set design elements with the sounds of gypsy music and gibberish, this satirical work for all ages highlights our insecurities as humans and our will to make the most of life.

In addition to When Snails Collide, audiences will also enjoy EroSpace, a world premiere of a live collaboration between Scanner (British Artist Robin Rimbaud) and Kyoko Dansu. The work is a conversation between movement and sound and an exploration of the space and environment created in this relationship, using live projections.
