In the Dark, it is not light but rather its absence that defines the score. The OMSI planetarium will be our sanctuary…When Georg Friedrich Haas composed his String Quartet No. 3 (In iij. Noct.), he stipulated that the piece be played in total darkness. For Third Angle’s performance, the OMSI planetarium will be a sanctuary—the perfect place for Haas’ tour de force.

Belgium/Portugal, US PREMIERE
With a dance idiom entirely their own, Ampe and Garrido unflinchingly seek out what they mean to each other. By turns hilarious, macho, violent, and foolish, these two men put their bodies to work discovering the different layers of their friendship.
Lola Arias, El año en que nací (SEPT 13-15)
Argentina/Chile, US PREMIERE

Chileans born under Pinochet’s dictatorship take to the stage to reconstruct scenes from their parents’ past; they don their parents’ clothes, perform original live music, and draw words from photos, letters, and recordings in this raw and honest performance.
Trajal Harrell, Judson Church is Ringing in Harlem (Made-to-Measure) (SEPT 13-14) andAntigone Jr. (SEPT 15)

These two performances by New York choreographer Trajal Harrell imagine what would have happened if the Harlem voguing ballroom scene had collided with the postmoderns at the Judson Church of the 60s, proposing an alternative, unrealized history in movement.
Suniti Dernovsek / Bobbevy, This is how we disappear (SEPT 13-16)


Two dancers explore the complexities of and fragility of human relationships, juxtaposed against the natural and inevitable passage of. Each of their movements is captured by on stage sensors, generating a response in real-time video and sound.

New York, NY

Khaela Maricich and Melissa Dyne have spent several years on a pop odyssey, recording the long-fables new Blow album and investigating the deepest corners of pop music and performance art, and the slippage between the two.
Laura Arrington & Jesse Hewit, ADULT (SEPT 16-18)

ADULT subverts the dominant experience of the duet, guided by essential qualities of light and dark. Taking a play-based approach to their movements, the pair plumbs the depths of their fantasies around death, exploring what happens at the end of things.
Mariano Pensotti, Sometimes I think, I can see you (SEPT 18-22) 
Argentina, US PREMIERE

A group of authors will observe our public spaces, writing live about both what they see and what they imagine. Both casual passerby and lingering audiences will become characters in the speculative stories written on the spot, and projected live onto nearby screens.

Miguel Gutierrez, And lose the name of action (SEPT 18-21)
New York, NY

Gutierrez balances neuroscience, improvisation, and paranormal investigations to explore the ghostlike traces that dance leaves on the mind and body. With award-winning performers Michelle Boulé, Hilary Clark, Luke George, K.J. Holmes, and Ishmael Houston-Jones.

Bouchra Ouizguen, Ha! (SEPT 18-20)

An exploration of madness, obsession, and ritual, inspired by the poems of Rumi. Moroccan choreographer Bouchra Ouizguen returns to the stage with her Madame Plaza collaborators, a trio of aïtas—cabaret singers both celebrated and scorned for their performing tradition.

The Chop Theatre/Itai Erdal, How to Disappear Completely (SEPT 16-18)
Award-winning lighting designer Itai Erdal shares his technical skills in this deeply personal story of his mother’s diagnosis with cancer, and the events that followed her asking him to help her die. It’s a nuanced reflection on mortality and family, aided only by his stage lighting.

Nacera Belaza, Le Trait solos and Le Temps Scellé (SEPT 19-20), Le Cri (SEPT 22)

A trio of dances that connect Algerian traditional dance, holy rituals, and Belaza’s own distinctive language of movements and gestures. Like echoes of an intimate experience, these performances are characterized by intensity, inwardness, and precise detail.

Daniel Barrow, The Thief of Mirrors/Looking for Love in the Hall of Mirrors (SEPT 20-21) Canada
Using his unique “manual” animations of layering and manipulating drawings on overhead projectors, Barrow returns to TBA with the story of a jewel thief whose eyes hold captivating powers. Like a live graphic novel, it’s a kitschy and dark homage to the “kissing bandit.”

Karen Sherman, One with Others (SEPT 20-22)

Employing choreography, text, and handyman trades, Minneapolis choreographer Karen Sherman crafts an ensemble performance that considers choice and communication. Aided by handmade objects, the performers extend and make sense of their interactions and identities.

Ivana Müller, WE ARE STILL WATCHING (SEPT 21-22)

A show performed by its audience, taking the form of a theatrical “read through.” Attendees will pick up their scripts and navigate a text collectively, creating and performing community, and shifting the idea of spectacle.
