June 14 - 17
A Double Bill
Guriga by Amal Rogers
+ The Crapture by Dolo McComb
Carrying all she needs with her, Amal Rogers in her solo Guriga, assembles and then packs away a warm and personal home where she can dance, eat, bathe, and rest. Guriga is a sometimes inviting sometimes private ritual of the protection and power of home.
In her new solo, The Crapture, Dolo McComb sets out on a quest to discover the space where things become their opposites. From the bottom of the cauldron worn thin by grief seeps awe. Lady Death slips on a banana peel, giving birth to a dove.
