Kill Your Darlings

An apocalyptic all-terrain dance performance

“Kill Your Darlings” is a twenty-minute dance performance for two dancers. It is designed to be performed anywhere, indoors or outdoors, day or night. It makes a big mess.

“Kill Your Darlings” begins in familiar territory. “Hello, darling!” Two men appear and draw chalk squares on the ground. They begin a game of hopscotch (locally known as Hinke), dancing in unison and repeating their sequences again and again.

With nerdy precision, the basic geometries and rhythms of the game grow increasingly complicated and physically demanding, transforming bit by bit into a kaleidoscopic journey around the world of body percussion.
