Dancing out of Darkness is beautifully dark and dreamlike visual poem that uses Butoh and Modern Dance to explore inertia, spiritual emptiness, longing, and the soul's winding path towards healing, renewal and freedom.
Performed mostly at dusk amidst the striking beauty of California's Joshua Tree desert, and scored with layers of heavily effected guitar loops, circuit bent instruments, haunting vocals, and landscapes of found sound, Dancing out of Darkness will entrance those willing to slow down long enough to let it under their skin.
