Imagine Apocalypse Now performed by one-actor, in 60 minutes, recreating some of the most famous scenes from cinema history through Chris Davis' unique theatrical lense. Backed by the soundtrack of the movie, Davis explores the heart of 'darkness' through movement, sound, dance, comedy, drama, lunacy, philosophy, and more in this high-octane 60-minute tour-de-force, directed by Mary Tuomanen and sound design by Adriano Shaplin.

"Davis throws himself into the role with abandon; at one point he plays a female stripper and does a shimmy that, for better or worse, you wont be able to get out of your head for a while."
- Tim Dunleavy, DC Metro Arts
"It is a tour de force that has convinced me that I must see his other work." - Mark Cofta, Broad Street Review
When you arrive at 5213 Gray's Avenue (coming from Philadelphia) you will see a big warehouse that is blocks long. You must drive along side the warehouse and pass the loading docks, then you will see the main road bending to your left (on the way to Bartram's), and another smaller road (Gray's Ave.) to your right. Please bear to the right and look for parking in front of the Auto Tag area or in the neighborhood in front of you. To your right you will see signs for Panorama and Apocalypse Now, and an usher will be outside with an army helmet on to guide you.
If you are taking public transportation take the #36 trolley from city hall. This trolley will take you right to the warehouse. There are two stops, one before the warehouse, and another one right as the road bends to the left. The second stop is closer to the entrance. Get off and walk towards the warehouse passed some huge semis. The door to the space is on the other side of these semis they simply block people's view.
