Venture into a questing dreamscape of mystery and nuance as physical theater and modern dance marry into an evening of angst, solace, and vibration…
A confluence of dancer/actors from across America and Europe join Kanopy for a mysterious and powerful evening.
“A Strange Day for Mister K,” a world premiere of corporeal mime physical theater and dance written especially for Kanopy by recognized leaders of the genre: Steve Wasson and Corrine Soum, Artistic Directors of London’s Theatre de L’Ange Fou and White Church Theatre Project, Spring Green. Former Martha Graham principal dancers, Graham dancers, and Kanopy Dancers perform together in this Kafkaesque tale.
