The Observatory is an eclectic collection of dance-theater performances that tumble through the history of humanity’s relationship to the sky and the myriads of projections cast upon it. Developed and presented in short, discrete chapters, the piece continuously shifts genres and performative logics, playing with the limits of the audience’s perception and imagination. From lunar landings to interplanetary sex, alien ballets to Babylonian texts, from the dramas of 16th century Renaissance scientists to the astronomy hot line of Walter Mercado, the show journeys where no man has gone before! The performers manipulate all the lights and sound from onstage as well as mix improvisation and tightly choreographed material with a constant interest in change and the process of perceptual and conceptual reorganization. The Million Underscores are taking their first show out of town! The Observatory will be performed in San Francisco at ODC Theater. Come to The Brick for a one night only preview! Let’s launch this project to the west coast and beyond! 3,2,1…BLAST OFF!
