    Dirty Work

    Called "the kind of dream that haunts you" by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, "Dirty Work" is a tawdry, elaborately low-tech hallucination on themes of age, regret and the art of performance. With dance both miniature and explosive, and text ranging from Anton Chekhov to Roger Whittaker, "Dirty Work" also integrates video investigations into life's more peculiar obsessions. In "Dirty Work," characters composited from Bergman's "Summer Interlude," Chekhov's "Swansong" and Tony Richardson's "The Entertainer" inhabit a stage environment of carefully crafted visual poverty. Through a filter of outdated, low-fidelity media equipment, like school-issue record players and used projection screens, the trio narigate a series of quirky, surrealist zones in which the act of performance teeters at a perilous junction between the sacred and the profane.
