There is an awesome sounding show happening tonight at the Contemporary Artists Center in Troy. Self described as “a DIY hodge-podge of experimental theater, puppetry, adventure, dance, ingenious nomadic set design, and the history of science”, there’s a nil chance those in attendance won’t be entertained.
From the event page:
“In the wilds of Siberia, Charles Darwin goes off search of the Yeti. The Yeti (if she exists) enters a radio station’s dance contest, hoping to win an all-expenses-paid vacation to a place that doesn’t exist yet. Darwin’s research companionâ€”a little brown batâ€”falls in love with the radio station’s electromagnetic emissionsâ€”but how could that ever end happily? Meanwhile, Siberia’s caves are home to a secretive tribe of ropemakersâ€”but their disintegrating family structure may cause their ancient craft to be lost forever. Through the lens of the real life allegory of the Flying Wallendas’ famous high-wire act, two performers on a tiny stage unfold Darwin’s laboratory, unfurl anatomic diagrams of the yeti, and try to tease out the difference between miracles and non-miracles.”
The show kicks off tonight at 8, and is $7. Hit the event page for more details.
