Event Description

“Pure hilarity, as well as uncomfortable honesty”  – Gapers Block

Warfare has entered new territory—cyberspace. The Fifth, a new commission for The Seldoms by longtime ensemble member and notable performer Philip Elson, investigates virtual and surreal worlds, bringing to life the origins, captors and masters of the secret sphere. Perpetrators face internal struggles in the fight for what they believe is a greater good. But the strong voices of survivors can’t be ignored. The tension between disruption and unity tells this tale.
