Influential and innovative, American choreographer John Jasperse’s newest work addresses belief systems, the relative nature of truth, and how we construct meaning in our lives. With a musical score by Bessie Award-winning composer, producer, and musician Hahn Rowe, performed by the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), Jasperse develops the visual design for this production. Known for rich content and a wry approach, Jasperse’s choreography explores heresy, radical ideas, delusional thoughts, and just plain nonsense.
Running Time:Approx. 1 hour 40 min including intermission, no late seating
