Expertly blending disparate source materials––the 'secret' tapes of Richard Nixon and the biography of Kaspar Hauser––Plan B wittily pits scheming power players against an innocent wild child to imaginatively explore the dynamics of loyalty, trust and betrayal.

Big Dance Theater’s production of Ich, Kürbisgeist, written by Sibyl Kempson, is a theatrical piece of writing, but it is not a play in the usual sense. The language itself manifests the harsh landscape of a world facing destruction, populated by five crude people speaking a rigorous, specific, invented languag...

Big Dance Theater directors Annie-B Parson and Paul Lazar sample fragments of iconic film scripts and novels, divorced from their narrative contexts, to create a kinetic collage of political rhetoric, pathos, paranoia, and suburbia. Lawn chairs, telephones, fur coats, and pistols mingle on a stage with Astronauts,...

Layered with the company’s fearless fusion of dance, music and visual design, The Other Here collides the rural stories of Japanese novelist Masuji Ibuse (1898–1993) with a global conference of life insurance salespeople. Okinawan pop music and re-inventions of traditional dance punctuate this juxtaposition of...
