Black Water by Sylvia Bofill with Yovo by Robert Lyons

Deadpan dada meets Pina Bausch in this physically rigorous, movement-driven, self-imploding melodrama. After a natural catastrophe blocks out the sun, Fred & Ginger spin, carry, and claw their way through the isolation of a forgotten government lab (or is it a 50's suburban kitchen?) while Yovo catalogs humanity in search of the post-post-post. This is sexy, visceral, bonkers buffoonery reimagined as The New Absurd. Anticipate your participation. For adventurous audiences only. Splash sheets provided.

The cast includes Laura Butler Rivera, Michael Leonard, Daniel Irizarry and Gulin Langbroek.

The production team includes Jungah Han (Set Design), Erik Petersen (Lighting Design), Elia Chuaqui (Sound Design), Meghan E. Healey (Costume Design), Chris Cancel Pomales (Props Design), Jan Lech (Composer) and Laura Butler Rivera (Assistant Director).
