The Muscle we Long With – Remounted from 2015, this show combines the work of acclaimed poet Don McKay with Aaron Copland’s masterpiece Appalachian Spring. Mask, imagery, movement, and song bring us to the edge of the rooftop where the owls are waiting for us in the dark.


Firebird with Dark by Five

Firebird with Dark by Five

Saint Pats (map)

Firebird opens with Purcell’s famous aria, When I am Laid in Earth, as a woman contemplates her final rest. The music of Björk accompanies her eccentric determination to take the occasion of her burial into her own hands, building to the triumphant climax of Stravinsky’s famous ballet Firebird. The music weaves together dance and digital interactivity to dazzling effect.
