Across the country, theaters are struggling to encourage people to go to the movies and to dance. With the goal of making an environment so novel and comfortable that it's worth leaving home for, some theaters have begun to offer seat-side dinner service, or seats that will flatten into beds. In celebration of this trend, dancer and choreographer Jacob Slominski's work attempts to see how comfortable an audience can be made to feel. Turning the tables on an evening of dance, Slominski examines the theatrical experience itself, asking, can going to the theater be so wonderful that it makes a show unnecessary?
