 is an indie-rock-fueled evening of postmodern dance-theater, coupling Susan Marshall's intimate, structured choreography with the seductiveness of pop culture to explore our complex relationship to the media we consume. 

Set to a commissioned score by Pulitzer Prize recipient David Lang, performed live by members of the electric guitar quartet Dither and Mantra Percussion.
