The Better Half is a dance-theater spin on the noir thriller Gaslight, which departs from its source text to bring a contemporary relevance to relatable themes of claustrophobia, escapist tendencies, and resilience in domestic relationships. The Better Half is co-created by Lucky Plush’s Artistic Director Julia Rhoads and Collaborating Director Leslie Danzig. More about The Better Half.

DOUBLE FEATURES!

  • 5pm Rink Life

  • 8pm The Better Half

In Rink Life, Lucky Plush brings its highly-integrated brand of dance theater into a communal space that nods to the visual aesthetics and social dynamics of 1970’s roller rink culture. Launching from a collision of plot points in several one-act plays, the script-turned-libretto is both spoken and sung by the ensemble, and builds upon fragments of everyday aural input—passing conversations, intimate exchanges, distant whispers, pop song ear-worms. These source inspirations come together in the delightful and moving world of Rink Life, where people navigate relationships, self-expression, and rejection in real-time.

SINGLE TICKETS to RINK LIFE $25
