Nevermore celebrates the 200th anniversary of Edgar Allan Poe's birthday by presenting a decidedly contemporary dance theater production. Featuring spectacular choreography, visual projection, and spoken narrative, Nevermore exposes the fading distinction between fantasy and reality in our technological, media-oriented society. With constructs from the modern day horror genre and cable TV's Ghost Adventures, this live installation delivers the viewer into 2010 urban-Americana. With Poe's Raven as a catalyst, our adventurers will become twisted, lost, confused, losing grip of their senses and spiraling into violent outburst that end in death. Or will they? Nevermore employs DASS high octane All-Terrain dance to deliver comprehensive emotion and craft that moves us to the edge of our seat.
Nevermore utilizes the worn beauty of Washington Hall and Poe's dark and dramatic poem "The Raven" as unlikely partners to the high-flying athleticism of some of the sexiest dancers on the Seattle stage today. Nevermore is a thriller that reinvents audience expectations and takes on the theme of violence in a fashion that stimulates us to think about our own personal investment in violence as entertainment.
New York City visual artist, Solange Umutoni is our partner in breaching the conversation of violence. Solange is a survivor of the Rwanda genocide. Her work today reflects her creative will that has sprung from her experiences. An interview with Solange will be played before the opening of the show and her startling and beautiful images will be a part of the projected media.
