This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.
Part Steven Sondheim and part The B-52's, Commentary = not thing is a modern dance opera that unfolds into a series of kaleidoscopic movement passages, vocalizing scores and chanting and singing sequences. In this work, May -- a choreographer devoted to abstraction and its ability to communicate the expressive body -- examines social emotions such as compassion, embarrassment, shame, guilt and contempt, in an effort to generate a narrative that is fueled by the emotional happenings of the individuals in the group and the interpersonal events that unfold.
