Wet The Hippo presents an evening of dance & comedy
a new dance piece from Max Baumgarten, Pearl Marill, Tyler Watson, and Eli Weinberg
What is it? Well. It's dark out. 4 strangers meet in a black box theater space to tell the world and each other what they really want. Absurdly sublime interactions, high stakes physicality, and brutal truths go face to face as the performers uncover the bizarrely poignant oddities that ultimately unite them.
with an opening set from our new ensemble
THE VIVIAN BECKLEY PERFORMING ARTS PLAYERS
Imagine a world without dinners. The void, the mixed messages, the lies. Now fast forward to 1994. Vivian Beckley, a self-made panic specialist, takes a good, hard look at her passion roadmap and says, «No more spinal injuries.» Today, the Vivian Beckley Performing Art Players continue to break the lungs of America as they prove over and over that art cannot exist in a teacup — we must break porcelain, shred evidence, and challenge the elderly if we are to be seen seeing. Vivian died in 2016, in three parts. She would have wanted it that way.
