A vital check-up with an unusual medical professional, specifically prescribed to prepare you for the strange events of the digital age.
About The Show:
At a moment in history when almost anything can be summoned on demand through the shiny bright rectangle in your pocket, many human experiences are lost. This troubling new development is the reason you must pay a visit to Dr. Mira. Experience crucial moments of reckoning with the future while a dancer posing as a doctor provides maximum cathartic release for you and one hundred of your newest best friends, a.k.a. your fellow audience members. No humans will be harmed in the making of this art.
This performance is made possible with support from Dixon Place, Leah Stein Dance Company, a residency at Arts Letters & Numbers, and in progress showings at Fringearts Scratch Night, Sound Space Performing Arts, Williamsburg Art neXus (WAX), and Movement Research Open Performance.
