$20 - $100
Two people sitting at a table. They are sitting across from each other but they are facing the audience. One reaches their arm out to gesture or make contact with the other. The other dancer has a white sheet over them with a shy demeanor.

In Ben Lerner's Leaving the Atocha Station, a postmodern novel about an artist's search for authenticity, the protagonist poet, crippled by irony and doubt, longs to disappear into numbness. But he secretly believes in the power of art. Hope Mohr's newest work takes Lerner's auto-fiction as a jumping off point for hybrid theater: part dance improvisation, part monologue, part hallucinatory testimonial for the role of art in precarious times. Thu, Jan 24, 7pm; Sat-Sun, Jan 26-27, 8pm, $20-100. Discount available…
