Soliloquies and Sunsets

The waters of the bay lap the shore beneath mists that lag low on the surface of the ocean. The winter dark with frost presses over the continent. The day's last gleams send long fingers over the crags of the west. And Liss Fain, in collaboration with visual designer Matthew Antaky, costume designer Mary Domenico, and composer Dan Wool, creates a new performance installation called After the Light that uses text from Virginia Woolf's The Waves and "shifting geometries of light." The show examines the boundaries, real and imagined, known and unconscious, impenetrable and porous, that sculpt the trajectories of our lives. Fain's work is non-narrative and operates in a vocabulary that combines modern dance and ballet technique. Six dancers tread the labyrinth. Audience members are invited to sit, stand, and come close up for the experience.
