PWNW Visiting Artist
Friday/Saturday Oct 5-6 8pm
Tickets: $12 / $16

In Shiny Angles in Angular Time, Archibald and Ring redefine the black box theater as a kind of magic box – a site containing properties both real and imagined. In this collaborative work, Archibald’s performance points to the space itself — its presence and identity — rather than the other way around, amplifying its power and making visible the force of its emptiness. Choreographers: Melinda Ring and Renée Archibald. Performer: Reneé Archibald.

PWNW Alembic Co-Production
Saturday November 3
Advance Tickets

Guests are invited to attend anytime during HAPPY HOUR.

Detoxifying libations and hand-cut artisan ice accompany a visual and sonic installation in this third chapter of Egan’s exploration of ice as a lens. In a world gleaming with frozen jewels and speaking in drips, the audience (we humans) come face to face with the beauty that is ice, and the temporal nature of its existence. The space itself is crying. Sound compositions by Doug Theriault. Performances by Celine Bouly, Kyle Delamarter and Egan.

ESCAPE FROM CHAPEL PERILOUS, an intermedia performance ritual written & directed by Antero Alli with poetry by Sylvia Plath. More information HERE.

Chapel Perilous is a metaphor for a dimension beyond the time/space continuum where souls are projected, catapulting out of Body, spinning inside repetitive rituals of worship until they’re called back into embodiment. —Antero Alli, director
