It’s like the craziest game of Twister you’ve ever seen, except taken to much deeper, provocative, metaphysical levels.

—This Week In New York

About

Presented as part of IN>TIME Festival

Experience theater as a shared political act in Thank You for Coming. As the dance begins, five performers gradually become tangled together into one ever-morphing body—building new formations and revealing fleeting feelings and states of being. Staged in the round, the audience is gradually invited into an expansive song, an urban folk dance, and a beautiful chaos that crescendos in joyful transformation.

This performance is designed for a small audience: capacity is limited.
