About the event

With maximalist movement, oddball humor, and unrelenting theatricality, Deepe Darknesse (pronounced dee-pee dark-ness-ay) is a physical theater performance combing dance, theater, and experimentation that will leave you breathless. Created by choreographers Lisa Fagan and Lena Engelstein, the show is a transmogrification regimen of their own design where they push their physical limits to the max and take the audience on a journey of curiosity, wonder, and the unexpected.

Deepe Darknesse is a Rube Goldberg machine of “curiositas improspera” or unhappy curiosity. The performers strive to become something “better” (a bird?), but their attempts backfire in unexpected ways. The show’s three worlds tangle into a Gordian knot, and just when you think you’ve seen it all, the underrated 1960s Italian songstress Cocki Mazzetti takes the stage, overshadowing the climax and leaving you wanting more.

Deepe Darknesse is an abacus whose beads slide between animal, machine, and person. The performers exert extreme effort and use hack rituals to push the needle towards their desired outcome. In a journey of self-discovery and exploration that touches the core of what it means to be human. Join us for a performance that will leave you awestruck, questioning, and laughing all at once.
