Witness Relocation: The Loon
THE LOON
by Witness Relocation (featuring Robert M. Johanson)
Directed and choreographed by Dan Safer
Run-time: approx. one hour

Witness Relocation's "The Loon" is an all-new, evening-length,  knock-down-drag-out, dance/theatre show based in part on Voices of the Loon (an educational record released by the Audubon Society in 1980); the work of sociologist Erving Goffman; At Home  Bill Brysons study of the history of domestic life; party games; and what happens when the festivities go very late into the night/next morning.

A follow up to Witness Relocation's acclaimed Dancing Vs The Rat Experiment (2006) and Vicious Dogs on Premise (2008), The Loon further explores the relationship between humans and animals, extreme theatricality, rough and tumble dancing, pop songs, and what it means to be alive and interacting with reality right now.

Featuring collaboration with acclaimed performer Robert M. Johanson (Nature Theater of Oklahoma), The Loon presents us with Johanson as our narrator, host, and guide, who delivers an unpredictable lecture and maybe even sings a love song.

The Loon is performed and co-choreographed by Alexa Andreas, Kelly Bartnik, Sunny Hitt, Annie Hoeg, Eva Jaunzemis, Vanessa Koppel, Dan Safer, Trevor Salter, and Robert M. Johanson.
Directed and co-choreographed by Dan Safer, text by Robert M. Johanson, with music by Javier Peral, projections by Kaz PS, set & lights by Jay Ryan, costumes by Eva Jaunzemis, production managed by Monique Bernier.

4 STARS from TIMEOUTNY

"...unafraid of its own strangeness" - NY Times

"One of those plays for which describing it doesn't do justice to the experience of seeing it. It is full of unexpected moments and wry humor; the cast is excellent, Johanson gives a magnificent performance, and all of it is great fun to watch." - Culture Catch
