Join us this weekend for Après moi, l'obscurtié, a contemporary dance by
Paige Phillips.

Après moi, l'obscurité (After me, the darkness) examines a myriad of social
and political injustices that women have been forced to endure. By
incorporating aesthetic and contextual references from the Renaissance,
mid-century, and today's pop-culture, the content lays witness to the
longevity of such indignities. A wild ride of vignettes feature sexually
anthropomorphic horses, Francisco Goya's depictions of witchcraft, and
contrived frivolity, amounting to a bold rejection for nostalgic ideals of
purity and femininity.
**For mature audiences only
