Inspired by postmodern visual artist Yves Klein, Into the Void mixes visual arts, drag performance and precise choreography performed by 5 dancers to evoke the complex gender politics of Klein’s work. Juxtaposing ornate materials with open spaces and transparent fabrics, the stage environment and materials mimic Klein’s artistic ideals as re-envisioned by a creative team including Michael Cepress (costume design), Kane Mathis (music), Susan Robb (sculpture), Tivon Rice (digital media) and Connie Yun (lighting).
Graham-trained dancer/choreographer Catherine Cabeen was a longtime Bill T. Jones performer and assistant (including Assistant Choreographer for the award winning Spring Awakening). In 2009 she was a finalist in The A.W.A.R.D. Show! Seattle. Since then she has founded Catherine Cabeen and Company to act as a forum for investigating both the creative processes and artistic products that result when artists of different mediums collide.
Into the Void is commissioned by OtB.
