    hone \ rile

    This performance by BLiPSWiTCH, held inside a vacant design showroom, features a cast of six dancers animating the themes of frustration and obstruction the company first explored in Roheline, as part of the modern dance series 11:11 by Jennifer Sherburn and Natalie George Productions. This new kinetic event – inspired by exhaustion, struggle, and repeated failure, as well as themes from “Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius” by Argentine writer Jorge Luis Borges(!) – will "embody persistence through repetition, born not only out of necessity, but of desire for a more perfect result."

    Bonus: music by Solid State Dream Suit’s Michael Brown and Alan Kahler.

    May 16-19. Wed.-Sat., 8pm. $20.
