The Bipeds: 54 Strange Words
Thursday, Jun. 21–Sunday, Jun. 24
The Fruit, Durham

Dana Marks, whom you likely know as an actor and director with Little Green Pig, emerged into the performance space at The Fruit, joining dancer and choreographer Stacy Wolfson, banjoist and singer Curtis Eller, and their ensemble of dancers and movers among the smoldering shadows.
