Night and Day, is an astonishing double bill of dance theatre pieces by one of America’s most influential and respected playwrights, Charles L. Mee. Using physical performance, music, and a collage of texts, two classic tales are re-told through a modern day lens, incorporating everything from philosophy to news stories to pop-culture. Like nothing else, Night and Day promises a tour-de-force evening of transformative, cutting edge, contemporary theatre. Performances run April 25 through May 4, 2014 in UNM’s Rodey Theatre.
