Prey is a marriage between the raw, blind intensity to survive with a tender reverence for life. This constant internal struggle plays out in this site-based work where threat of confinement or release, abandonment and restriction haunt those that travel within its walls. Inspired by the diverse and intense works within Richard Einhorn’s acclaimed score, Voices of Light, Prey reveals the close kinships between brutality and tenderness, cowardice and heroism in both animal and human form. This site based version creates an architectural relationship between the building and the dance itself, pushing the limits of dimension and capacity to their most extreme. The building becomes more than a neutral shell but a character within which architecture, light and costuming intermingle to create a terrifyingly austere yet heart-clutchingly tangible environment.Please be advised, this performance guides audiences through the stairwells, halls, studios and outdoor spaces of the BAX Building over a 1-hour period. Audiences should wear comfortable footwear. Reservations are STRONGLY recommended. This work is intended for adults and children ages 13 and older.Friday, November 7 @ 8pmSaturday & Sunday November 8 & 9 @ 7pm and 9:30pmFriday, November 14 @ 8pmSaturday & Sunday, November 15 & 16 @ 7pm and 9:30pm$20 General AdmissionChoreography by Shannon Hummel in collaboration with the dancersFeatured Performances by Kelly Bartnik, Donna Costello, Nicki Marshall & Cynthia Thompsonwith Xan Burley, Galois Cohen, Erika Hansen, Tara O'Con, Katy Orthwein, Jesse Phillips-Fein, Jennifer Schmermund, Jessica WeissCostume Design & Construction by Naoko NagataLighting Design by Eva Pinney
