Pulling from sources as varied as quantum physics, David Mamet’s Glengarry Glen Ross, and disco music, and inspired by 1970s New York City, THEN, THERE WERE uses formal compositions and structured improvisations that unravel into surreal situations. Dancers juxtapose intimacy and violence, performative virtuosity and self-destruction, underscoring the relationships between narrative and abstraction, meaning and chaos.
