Decaying surfaces, facades wearing slowly away, the gradual revelation of the underlying resilient form: the sculptural/geological process of aging.

This site-specific movement theatre meditation approaches aging as an on-going process of reduction toward a fully exposed self. It explores the experience of those layers deteriorating through pressure, friction, and time, leaving us exposed and vulnerable; and it seeks the firm, clear core underneath that only grows stronger under these pressures.

Control Group Productions, the permanent resident dance company of The Packing House Center for the Arts, approaches live performance as a single medium, ignoring the articificial boundaries of traditional genres. Through seeking the material that best fulfills each project concept, CGP creates unique new works that span the spectrum of dance, theatre, music, and visual art.

Created in residency at The Bindery | Space.
