cresset: vibrant, rusting

A dance work exploring decay’s fruition, cresset: vibrant, rusting is embedded in a land of dislodged niches, meticulous movement, and live music. Miniature modular stages wheel and rotate through the space, simultaneously changing the audience’s viewing perspective and kaleidoscopically revealing new facets of the intricately crafted environment. Installed in the rolling niches, dancers move from contained micro-movement to explosive expansion throughout the space.

Antonick’s movement invention is weird and grotesque, employing gestures of disgust and consumption paired with otherworldly exacerbations… an unforgettable evening.
