A Shot in the Dark: Program A
We are turning off the power for two weeks! In this Festival and environmental initiative, The Tank is celebrating innovative performance that utilizes self-sufficient and alternative energy sources. Artists are using everything from glow tape to flashlights to a bike-powered generator to shed some light on their work. Program A is a variety show featuring a dance piece with a bike-powered generator and Dancing in the Dark!
Secus Rota, the premier collaborative work of Soluq Dance Theater, harnesses the power, effort, and cycle of dance, light, and bike power in a thirty minute suite, twisting through struggles and emotion to the edge of the human spirit. Partnering with Little Black Bike, Secus explores a new performance environment by creating a totally self-powered and performer manipulated lighting environment that constantly shifts and changes. Libretti's lighting design sends the dancers through a dense emotional landscape as diverse and complex as the environment they inhabit, a combination of dance and light that merges sustainable theater practice with the art it supports.
Dancing in the Dark:
