Its more of a collage of images and feelings. But the movements do explore ideas. One section deals with the failing body, while another explores couples emotions, varying from attraction to repulsion.
Wood says the production has a black-on-black aesthetic. Everythings black, the costumes are black and everything in the theater is black, she tells us. The only thing that isnt black is
