Performers: Performers: Kyle Driggs and Andrea Murillo
Eventide is a multidisciplinary piece produced and performed by modern circus performer and dancer, Kyle Driggs and Andrea Murillo, that uses expressive movement, object manipulation, and contemporary, surreal scene-setting to expose the challenges we face in romantic relationships and relationships with ourselves.
The story begins in the ether and slowly narrows in on an apartment where we find a troubled couple awake despite the late hour. Soon we witness their disconnection unfold with the interplay between present interactions, interior monologues, and past memories.
With the future of their relationship at stake, they choose to explore a hovering, seductive void, one that’s accessible via inexplicable phenomena of the twilight hours. There in the void they move freely, without the weight of mental clutter, giving them a clarity that ultimately leads them toward redefining their individuality and partnership.
3AM theatre is the latest creative endeavor of two career performers, Kyle Driggs and Andrea Murillo.
Kyle and Andrea bring their respective experiences at storied institutions like Martha Graham Dance Company and Cirque du Soleil to 3AM where they are developing performances that explore both the intersection and the boundaries of their art forms.
While the narrative and format changes with each performance, the viewer can expect an experience that transcends spectacle to challenge one’s relationship with everyday objects and universal sentiment.
