KIM THOMPSON & JIMI CABEZA DE VACA – High Fantasy
October 27 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm
One event on October 28, 2017 at 8:30pm
Inspired by the magical time of the season, High Fantasy is a carefully choreographed passage through a dreamy landscape of shifting scenery, feelings, and characters. Dancers embody the balance of space, the poetics of dualities and the distortion of time. They are accompanied by a modern chamber orchestra along with elements of installation, visual projection, and theatre.
“This world, is not our world.”
