they're afraid of the things everyone else is, but nevertheless the duo can’t help but wax poetic in their dance based requiem of fears
The Cherdonna and Lou Show will present the first edition of their newest evening length dance based performance piece out out there (A Whole Night Lost) FRIDAY THE 13TH EDITION on Friday April 13 at Seattle’s Velocity Dance Center.
If Cherdonna falls in a forest and Lou isn’t around to hear it, does she make a sound? Can Lou see the forest or just Cherdonna and some trees? Who are Cherdonna and Lou after the proverbial party ends? out out there (A Whole Night Lost), is The Cherdonna and Lou Show’s requiem of fears. They know they are afraid of the same things everyone else is, but nevertheless Cherdonna and Lou can’t help but wax poetic in a silent movie with movement subtitles about their most human moments, from existential crisis to monsters under the bed. Where do our nightmares come from? What parts of us are built from terror? Who do we grasp onto to save ourselves? Cherdonna and Lou are unsure what terrors they have encountered, what they have imagined, and what Hollywood has implanted in their brains. Walking the fine line between tragedy and comedy, this is Cherdonna and Lou when no one is looking.
This fundraising campaign will cover the fees and materials of the three artists we will be collaborating with on this project. We are commissioning super secret performance enhancing pieces of art by Seattle based artist Sari Breznau, best known for her work with Circus Contraption and Orkestar Zirkonium. We don’t want to disclose what they are, as these particular unknowns are important to the mystery and surprise of the evening as it unfolds, but they promise to be stark, beautiful, and horrific. We are additionally commissioning sound design and new music by Matt Starritt. Matt designed the sound for our last evening length work, It’s a Salon!, and we are thrilled to continue to work with this intuitive and knowledgeable artist. The third collaborator is lighting designer ilvs strauss, a master of making magic out of few resources.
This Kickstarter funding will allow out out there (A Whole Night Lost) FRIDAY THE 13TH EDITION to contain the visual and sonic elements required for this work to come to life
