SUSPENDED

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this production has been suspended. Please read our full statement.


In the wake of the acclaimed Yellow Towel, Mercurial George traces and transforms the banal, provoking a certain malaise. Sifting through the heaps of dusty clues leftover in the wake of initializing a cultural excavation, Dana Michel offers a destabilizing solo. The body vacillates as it struggles for balance and a toehold. Stretching out time with minimalist and deconstructed movement, Michel becomes the archeologist of her own persona.

Mercurial George vibrates; it vibrates with me still.”
