A new dance work by Luke Murphy
Performed by Luke Murphy and Carlye Eckert
Video installation by David Fishel
An evening length duet work for Luke Murphy and Carlye Eckert. Drenched investigates the gulf between the representations and realities of romance in contemporary society. Deconstructing the sources from which we form our expectations and contrasting them with the starker realities of pursuit, desire, and codependency. Drenched examines a world of contradictions, parodies, uncertainties and the fundamental search for companionship.
With a multi-channel projection installation by video artist David Fishel and a haunting soundscape, Drenched is a piece of viscerally physical dance theatre with a sharp edge and a sharper sense of humor.
