Join Control Group Productions and the Biennial of the Americas on an epic journey from Denver's urban core to its resurgent wildernesses, tracking human imprint on our natural environment.
Histories, futures, and fictions collide as we travel by bus through built and natural environs from historical downtown through industrial wastelands to the revitalized natural beauty of Rocky Mountain Arsenal Wildlife Refuge. An entirely unique experience of our city, FEAR & PROPHETS reaches into the past to see the future, slamming together Manifest Destiny, the modern Romantic ethos, and pop-culture renderings of the Apocalypse to prophecy our downfall and our prospects for salvation.
This multi-site-specific avant garde performance fuses dance, theatre, poetry, design, and live-interactive sound technologies into a journey through the cracks in our known world and into the wilderness beneath.
The tour begins at 5:45pm and lasts approximately 2.5 hours. Come early and enjoy refreshments and pre-show. Make 8:20pm dinner reservations at Coohills restaurant for after the show!
