Angular ballet and unearthly psalms come together in a quasi-religious ritual inspired by the tradition of American Shape Note Singing. Visionary duo zoe | juniper create a surreal, communal world of ever-shifting perspective and sound with the help of a cast of virtuosic dancers, unabashed live singing, and digital wizardry.
Please note: The artists are documenting the Friday and Saturday evening performances. Because seating is in the round, it is likely that audience members will be filmed. If you have questions or concerns regarding filming, contact us.
