Don’t miss this opportunity to see JARMAN (all this maddening beauty) for one performance in Washington, D.C. before it embarks to the UK. This will be a double-bill performance with the premiere of Windswept from Stephen Clapp/Dance Box Theatre.
JARMAN (all this maddening beauty) is a premiere performance collaboration between the dynamic ensemble force/collision and OBIE award-winning playwright Caridad Svich. Archival home movies, new video, sound and live performance merge together to reconstruct the essence of the cult figure, artistic legacy and punk movement. Jarman brings together a community of over 40 performers through video and sound, manipulated in real time in a daring and vulnerable performance by force/collision Founding Director John Moletress. Two artistic stories meld, unravel, collapse and find each other again as the past and present collide.
There have been five past great mass extinctions the history of Earth. There is also an ever-growing consensus within the scientific community that we may have entered a sixth. Dance Box Theater’s latest work by Stephen Clapp, Windswept, explores the divisive dialogue around climate change, its causes and effects, and potential courses of action to mitigate its impacts. Through dramatic choreography, spoken word, insightful narrative and a unique, original music score, Windswept addresses the possibility that we may be in the midst of an anthropocene extinction.
