World Premiere!

Night is electric, immersive, rejuvenating, and disarming. It demands to be met by the intuitive, sentient body. Its mysteries offer respite from the drama of the day. The nights of our generation are aglow with artificial light. What trace of darkness is left on you?

“She grabbed my book by the scruff of the neck, held it up to the light, and shook the gold out of it.”
-Christopher Dewdney, author, Acquainted with the Night

Based on Christopher Dewdney’s award winning text 
Acquainted with the night: Excursions through the world after dark

About Shannon Litzenberger Contemporary Dance

Some of the most exciting live performances of our generation are being created at the intersection of artistic disciplines. These works transcend traditional art forms and come to life through innovative collaborations that take place in the spaces between artistic practices. More and more, artistic risk, experimentation and discovery are being driven through the cross-pollination of artists from theatre, music, dance, film, design, multi-media, literary and visual arts, working together in spaces that embody a spirit of creative exchange across forms of practice.
