Disjecta Contemporary Art Center 8371 N. Interstate Ave., Portland, OR 97217

Abominable is a new dance-theater work for two performers. Drawing on the medieval Scandinavian imaginary and its lineage of famed heroes, Abominable creates a context for examining the monstrosity of heroism as well as the (self-)destructive logic of heroic consciousness, which continues to haunt white masculinity to this day. Through movement, recitation, costuming and a dynamic set, the protagonist of Abominable enters an obscure relationship with his other-than-human shadow, all the while manifesting a “fallen virtuosity” in which the desire for individual ascendance degrades the very ground beneath his feet.

Choreographed and directed by Taylor Eggan.

Set and costume design by Daniel Addy.

Performed by Eggan and Addy.

Seating is limited. Please purchase tickets early!
