WASHINGTON DC: DEVIATED THEATRE at Dance Place
DEVIATED THEATRE Artistic Directors Enoch Chan and Kimmie Dobbs Chan, acclaimed for their spellbinding choreography, utilize a mix of dance, acting and aerials to tell fantastical tales of other worlds.
This special 10th anniversary performance features the world premiere of Beyond, the sixth full-length original dance opera created by Kimmie and Enoch.
In Beyond, Luna the astronaut is guided by Lady Time on a journey to life’s very edge. Her childhood stargazing and dreams of flying are transformed through heroic trials in the void of outer-space and on the stormy climes of Mars. Accompanied by Figments of her own mind — which appear as both playful companions and burdensome shadows — Luna learns that every thrust outward into the solar system carries her further inward to frontiers of her true self. Suspended between here and hereafter, Luna discovers that getting lost is part of getting found.
