and live conversation with Phantom Limb Company members
February 18, 7:00PM – 69°S
69°S. is a series of dynamic tableaux vivants inspired by Sir Ernest Shackleton’s 1914 Trans-Antarctic Expedition. Co-conceived by The Phantom Limb Company and The Kronos Quartet, this painterly narrative installation-in-motion melds theatrical performance, puppetry, photography, dance and film with original contemporary music and an unconventional acoustic palette to create a stunning — and unprecedented — artistic and emotional journey.

March 18, 7:00PM – Memory Rings
Memory Rings is told through a series of overlapping scenarios that come together to confront us with one profound choice. The epic tale of Gilgamesh, woodland creatures as storytellers, fairy tales full of enchanted forests, and a new fable – the disintegration of four people in an identity crisis – all overlap. Dance, puppetry, mask, installation, music, projections, costume, and the occasional bit of Nietzsche are all judiciously used to tell our otherwise wordless story. Read more about this performance.
April 22, 7:00PM – Falling Out
A highly anticipated and deeply researched production, Falling Out examines the earthquake, tsunami and subsequent nuclear meltdown that ravaged the region of Fukushima, Japan in 2011, marking the most fatal natural disaster in history. Blending puppetry with the distinct Japanese art of Butoh, Phantom Limb Company collaborates with Dai Matsuoka of Sankai Juku to investigate the shared language of Butoh and puppetry to express loss and life afterwards.
