Glue Factory Project: Beckett & Beyond
Performed by a stellar international cast, Beckett & Beyond explores the fickle landscape of existentialism. Beth Corning weaves her thoughtful, award-winning choreography with two short works by playwright Samuel Beckett - Act Without Words II, and Rockaby, both of which are a form of movement/ physical theater. Designer Stephanie Mayer's evocative floating landscape creates a surreal geography for three metaphorically and literally tethered travelers.
