Performa/Dance Presents The Mad Scene
June 10 @ 8:00 pm - June 11 @ 10:00 pm
The Mad Scene is an 80-minute, darkly absurdist dance-drama that dives into the human longing for fame. Skipping through time periods and rollicking in anachronisms, it begins in the 17th century court, makes a pit stop mid-20th century, comes to a screeching halt at our current internet-fueled celebrity culture and in the process, skewers the veneer of performance, propaganda and artificiality. Performa/Dance has been known for its impressive contemporary dance credentials and its insightful storytelling. Artistic Director Jennifer Hart has teamed up with acclaimed local physical theater artist Kelsey Oliver to create The Mad Scene, Performa/Dance’s newest work taking place at AustinVentures StudioTheater at Ballet Austin.
