$7 ($5 Students)

Baskel & Clancy; Perpetual Doubt was born out of our desire to embrace the uncertainty that comes from allowing art and life to collide. What if performance was not a metaphorical conversation between audience and performers but an actual conversation? Perpetual Doubt attempts to merge conversation, physicality, artifice and experience to ask the question, “What are we doing here?” In this performance, Baskel and Clancy take on the challenge of listening and responding to one another, the audience and the world (this small part of it) in real-time.

Color Blank Space is a dance performance series featuring work that exists in the nameless space between reality and fiction. Utilizing both movement and spoken text, the work aims to leave the audience feeling more connected with themselves, to their immediate surroundings, and to the possibilities that exist in their imagination.
