on the cusp
Music : Words : Action
Where are the boundaries between sound, speech, act, silence, metaphor, and the real? Who sets these boundaries and on whose terms?
On the Cusp (May 4, 2018) interrogates these and other boundaries. Liminal works of the past century--Samuel Becketts Cascando, Sam Shepards Tongues, Tristan Tzaras The Gas Heart, Gertrude Steins A Circular Play--are performed by artists with and without disabilities, including Michael Herzovi, Arlene Malinowski, Kyle Price, Hal Christine, Sam Porretta, Steve Butters, and Christophe Preissing. Poised between theatre, music, and movement; between story, song, and act; between mundane, alien, and ecstaticthese works open onto worlds of difference.
A ladder beckons . . . a narrative fractures . . . a voice is silenced . . .
For the full immersive experience be sure to bring a WiFi enabled device (e.g. smartphone, iPad, etc.) and headphones or ear buds.
On the Cusp is wheelchair accessible. Wheelchair accessible/gender-neutral restrooms will be available. Please refrain from wearing scented products. ASL interpretation will be provided. For other accommodation requests, please contact Carrie Sandahl at firstname.lastname@example.org.
