Description

A state of shock and bewilderment encompasses you in the wake of a disaster. It is a timeless, liminal space where you return again and again even while struggling to gain and maintain distance, repeatedly responding to the disaster long after it has subsided. Here, a crisis-management team is keeping your emergency situation alive and present, a trusted voice urging you to come to terms with the past, and a steady supply of "The Show" available for all the distraction, escape and pleasure you might crave. In one sense, you are the survivor and this is your refuge. In another, you're the disaster waiting to happen. Betroffenheit (working title) brings the choreographer of Dark Matters (2012) and The Tempest Replica (2014) with co-creator and lead actor of Tear the Curtain! (2012) in a hybrid of theatre and dance.
