Description:

    Within the confines of a strictly organized system, an unexplained anomaly appears in the central core. Strikingly different in its freedom and elasticity, the anomaly begins replicating itself throughout the ensemble. This new entity spreads like wildfire and divides the two sides to battle each other in a machine vs. anomaly showdown. With the anomaly taking over completely, the show changes drastically into an expressive & flowing production that highlights the drastic shift to the anomaly's characteristics. After the opener, all drill is abandoned and we explore a polar opposite approach to musicianship and movement. Multiple soloists are featured throughout to highlight the individual qualities of the anomaly.

    Eventually, the anomaly becomes the new “normal,” and we see that the machine resurfaces as a new anomaly within the system. The production ends with the entire ensemble returning back to the machine-state existence of the beginning, recreating the opposite version of the ripple that took over the machines in the beginning.

    This show was originally commissioned for the fall of 2019 and was released for the 2020 season.
