Aye Aye Captain

Choreographer: Tom Weinberger

“Aye Aye Captain” is an absurd piece. It is based on a thirty three page script and includes ten performers, ten microphones, and three pieces of music.

 

It moves between a rehearsal and a performance of a hybrid dance-theater-play. We build and demolish castles of drama one time after another. Over and over again.

 

We have a host and a ghost, an old man by the sea, and someone who used to be a dreamer. We dance to the sound of the theremin and hold hands with an assortment of cliches and universal fears.

 

We inhale, we sing, we wait for the music to save us.
