About the Performance

Premiered: La MaMa Annex Theatre, NYC

This work explores man’s cyclical natures and his return to birth and primitivism. Through contrasting passages of ritualistic and primal movements, nine performers transport through earth and netherworld, stillness and destruction, and through the rise and fall of civilization.
