Daniel Fish (NYC)
DON’T LOOK BACK
Daniel Fish’s new work offers us a radical departure from his previous text-driven work and seeks to find out what happens when the actors and text are gone and the talking stops.
Made for a very small audience, Fish ruminates on the passage of time and our perception of it. Set and light drive the undrive-able and Philip White’s score subverts expectations of aural perception.
Co-presented with The Chocolate Factory Theater
