Dixon Place and ANIMALS Performance Group present a struggle for survival in an apocalyptic world, with a hybrid of dance, text, and interactive media.
Six low-level employees of an anonymous bank, all of whom are named Chase, refuse to take the apocalypse seriously. Each of them is on his own metaphysical journey, and they intersect to share their findings. Studying nightmares, foreign wars, corporate personhood, climate change, epidemics, environmental catastrophes, loneliness, the singularity and other harbingers of doom, the six Chases try and fail to behold the world’s terrible face, unmasked.
"Intriguing but inchoate new work...The piece’s various elements hang together better in the script than they do onstage, partly because of two inscrutable segments that depend on movement and shadows to tell significant parts of the story. In performance, 'Chase' feels unrealized and adrift, a dramatic universe that has yet to find its center."
