Night Shade is a dance dreamscape weaving liminal moments with the abstract realm. From awkward to fluid to comedic, Night Shade touches on our ever-evolving collective absurdity.  Visiting Austin artist Heloise Gold joins Jean in the second half of the performance.  While in Austin, Jean and Heloise co-created their long running production Divine Lunacy. They are excited to come together again in Santa Fe, NM.
