Rubber mulch, warmup and work

It’s FUTURE/PERFECT! DANCEworks Santa Barbara 2016 begins. Shannon Gillen and Vim Vigor Dance Company are in the Lobero Theater for 4 weeks creating a new work of dance/theater which will have its World Premiere Sept. 23 & 24. Rehearsals begin with the dancers getting used to working on 3 tons of “mulch” made from recycled tires, and the choreography begins to take shape.
Against an original pulsating sound score that grinds synth and bass, the characters in FUTURE/PERFECT confront the paradox of hope and doubt, wrestle with their desperation for a spiritual sign, and ask: What magic is left?
A company known for extreme and daring physicality, Shannon & Vim Vigor and this new production will present an experience you won’t want to miss. Tickets: or 805-963-0761
