‘Après moi, l’obscurité’ (After me, the darkness)

January 26 @ 8:00 pm - January 27 @ 10:00 pm

$15 - $18

‘Après moi, l’obscurité’ (After me, the darkness) is a dance by Paige Phillips in collaboration with a cast of three female performers. The work examines a myriad of social and political injustices that women have been forced to endure. By collaging together aesthetic and contextual references from the Renaissance, mid-century, and today’s pop-culture, the content lays witness to the longevity of such indignities. A wild ride of vignettes feature sexually anthropomorphized horses, Francisco Goya’s depictions of witchcraft, and contrived frivolity, amounting to a bold rejection for nostalgic ideals of purity and femininity.

**For mature audiences only
