Premiered 2018 - Portland, OR
Early is a truly immersive in-the-round evening-length performance.
Featuring the vision of composer-choreographer Samuel Hobbs, Early crafts an isolated world of creation and destruction—a true meditation on the human condition.
Sweeping visuals and palpable acoustics ebb and flow, “...its mood like a modern-day Haydn” (Bob Hicks, Oregon ArtsWatch). The athletic and physical movement-partnering of push/FOLD exemplify the sensations of tension and release.
Performed in-the-round, audiences are enveloped in a minimal landscape of pure movement, light, and sound, with original sound score, choreography, lighting, and set design by Samuel Hobbs.
Approx. 60 minutes without intermission.
