Enter the Void

Enter the Void
Description:

A deep-space dance performance, arts installation, and poetry experience.

Each visitor will have a chance to cross over from earth to the deep space beyond, where sound, light, and time itself move differently.

You'll receive our expert guidance in your crossing and your return, as well as a collection of words from fellow travelers - part passport, part visitor's guide, part program of events.

We can't say for sure what you'll see on your pilgrimage - it is never quite the same - but we know something is out there, in the nothing. And it watches back. See what you can see. Let the darkness hold you. Leave light and body behind you, for a while.

Come back changed.

Time: 6/9/18 1:00pm - 6/10/18 11:59pm
Location: Spotlight Vermont, South Burlington
