Salt Horse- Man On The Beach
Man on the Beach follows the strange paths of three men who have replaced reality with their desire to retain the past and become perpetually stuck in time. Their stark, monochromatic lives are invaded by colorful, dream-like forces that disrupt and embody the men's unfolding internal narratives. Colliding dance, sound, and visual-theater, Salt Horse gradually reflects the men's looped and fragmented memories through morphed or duplicated bodies and surreal abstractions of nature and environment. "Magic" scenic effects and gorgeous, live sound amplify the precarious fragility of perception and cinematically frame what is both funny and terrifying in an inability to let go.
Joining Salt Horse dancers/choreographers Beth Graczyk, Corrie Befort and composer/musician Angelina Baldoz are a cast of beloved and remarkable Seattle performers: Michael Rioux and Jens Wazel, with special guest appearances by Serge Gubelman, Allie Hankins, Shannon Stewart and Danny Herter. Bios of the founding artists may be found on the Salt Horse website.
