Humanity’s desire to re-create the un-re-createable.
June 10 – 13, 2010
The Candle Factory (4537 N. Robertson)
The Don Effect explores humanity’s desire to re-create the un-re-createable. Six ensemble members play a diverse cast of characters: an executive chef; the interim CEO of a sinking corporation; a grieving granddaughter; two dance archivists; and more. In their struggles to reconstruct originals -from famous concert dances to grandma’s biscuits – each encounters the failure of written language to capture embodied experiences.
